UTILITARIAN details in Ferragamo’s latest collection
Sportswear, streetwear from salvatore ferragamo

This season, Salvatore Ferragamo presents a collection that playfully embraces contrasts and contradictions.
Across the collection, travel is epitomized by the backpack, that symbol of escapism and adventure, whose rugged structure and utilitarian details are channeled through outerwear, suits and accessories.
Juxtapositions abound, as tailoring and military codes are interwoven with sportswear and streetwear. The Ferragamo suit is presented in relaxed new proportions, echoing the casual, oversized workwear of the artist.
The rigidity of dark indigo mohair is softened with open silk shirts and double-looped studded belts. Striped and sleeveless jumpsuits, reworked in light technical cotton, exude airiness and modern chic.
Paradoxically, Ferragamo’s master craftsmanship is applied to sporty outerwear, bringing structure and gravitas to papery leather pieces defined by their lightness and agility. A two-piece, citrus-yellow coat features exquisite tailored detailing, injecting a sense of founder Salvatore Ferragamo’s lifelong obsession with comfort through construction.
Formality merges with futurism as the iconic Ferragamo Tramezza men’s shoe is wrapped with an ultramodern leather and elastic shielding, creating the attitude of the sneaker.
The central collection trope of the backpack is presented in khaki canvas with neo-blue suede strapping.
In the Philippines, Salvatore Ferragamo is at Alabang Town Center, Greenbelt 4, Newport Mall, Rustan’s Makati and Rustan’s Shangri-La.
