The uncompromising power woman

She is confident and undisturbed. She is the power woman. Through times of calm and discomfort, she has everything under control as she strides without hints of doubt nor fear.

Strut feminine-military appeal with the High Waist Corset Effect Pants. The innovative construction of these trousers has a panel that wraps around the bust for a playful corset effect. Pair it with the iconic Single Breasted Silk Lined Blazer, which features slightly elongated lines, a rounded cut on the bottom, and an inner lining in printed silk crêpe de Chine—a truly chic outfit! Complete the look with the ultra-versatile Ferragamo Studio Bag. An emblem of elegance and style, this compact edition is crafted from two tone nappa mignon braided together to create a Damier pattern and is fastened with a refined Gancini clasp. Altogether, this outfit embodies female empowerment—a cause that only continues to grow in relevance year after year.

The ultra-glam metropolitan

Like a city that dazzles throughout the night with lively lights, the metropolitan woman shines with her sharpness, wit, and sophistication. Her beauty is infectious and her presence, magnetizing.

Standout in the Grosgrain Fringe Skirt that echoes sensuality and craftsmanship. A pencil skirt in pure wool, it captures attention through its intertwined grosgrain ribbons, deep side slit, and fringes at the bottom. Pair it with the the Nappa Leather Shirt made with plongé nappa for a soft and fluffy texture just like fabric. Ferragamo’s skill in leather processing is enhanced by the minimal aesthetics of this model, inspired by men’s tailoring. Complement the outfit with the simple and refined Varina Ballerina Flats, which features the Vara bow in grosgrain and a golden metal plate with an engraved Ferragamo logo. Truly, this is a must-have ensemble for the young and classy urban woman.

The mesmerizing woman in black

Mysterious, edgy, and ineffably irresistible, the woman in black is a celebrated icon that many strive to mimic. Her style is classic and effortless, demanding respect in every step.

Quintessential of Ferragamo savoir faire, the Nappa Leather Coat is a statement piece for any occasion. Made with soft plongé nappa, it can be worn as a coat or as a dress. It is specifically designed to embrace the feminine shape by drawing an impeccable silhouette, whilst offering beauty and functionality with its lapel, high waistband, leather-covered snaps, and two large patch pockets.

The business mogul

These are the enterprising men and women who make the world turn. Serious and savvy, they are the leaders that call the shots for a promising tomorrow.

For her:

Mix fashion and functionality with High Waisted Pants that balances masculine lines and sartorial influence with the softness of the material and its relaxed structure. Pair it with the Blazer with Scarf Panel—a single breasted jacket with an avant garde look from a side panel that wraps the body for a cape effect. It includes a waist belt that magnifies the female silhouette for an overall powerful look.

For him:

Boasting tailored construction and contemporary fit, the Slim Trouser has a flat front hidden clasp and a slim fitted leg without pleats for an impeccable city fit. Match it with the Short Sleeve Shirt, a pinstripe wool shirt with a sporty construction; and the Single Breasted Blazer that features double lapels, two exposed pleats, and a fitted fit—a design that finds its root in contemporary tailoring. Complement the look with the luxurious Gancini Belt made of soft lizard printed deer leather. Step with the Oxford Shoe, a modern classic in matte calfskin treated with vegetable oils to create unique color tones ultimately tending to a contemporary appeal.

The laid back dresser

Go causal with a back-to-basics ensemble. The laid back dresser finds comfort in names and experiences that prove trustworthy throughout the years.

The classic Sailor Pants is given a modern twist with its side pockets and straight leg, completed with a wide and short hem. Pair it with the Denim Shirt featuring a western aesthetic with its triangular flap pockets and a distinctive modern horn buttons and contrast stitching. Complement the style with the 1927 Tote Bag featuring a debossed 1927 logo, recalling the year Salvatore Ferragamo returned to Italy from America. The Loafer with Gancini and Stud adds a runway look to your style featuring a rounded silhouette that draws up to a squared Gancini bit with a pyramid stud in the center.

Closet staples for everyday chic

An outfit is not complete without complementing shoes and accessories. Add staples to your closet that are appropriate for any kind of occasion.

‘Viva’ is the Italian word for being ‘alive.’ Embrace the joy of living with the Viva Shoes, a fresh style that incorporates a boldly modernized upgrade of the house icon Vara bow. The iconic shoe also supports sustainability as Ferragamo continues to quantify the model’s carbon footprint, and therefore its environmental impact.

Made with soft calfskin leather, the Gancini Moccasin is adorned with a Gancini ornament for an on-trend finish. Choose between the model’s iconic silhouette or the modern, squared interpretation. Flex your styling options by lowering the heel and wearing it as a mule. Casual refinement, maximum style.

Creative and feminine, the Viva Bow Bag is an innovative mix of modern silhouettes. Made of lightly padded leather with an adjustable shoulder strap, it has handkerchief-effect stitched edges and a large Vara bow that decorates the closure. The completely on tone finish creates an urban chic touch, suited for any kind of day.

Known for its compelling lexicon of beautiful, useful, and timeless designs, Salvatore Ferragamo continues to share visual narratives through clothing. From the season’s shoes, ready-to-wear, and accessories, the Autumn Winter 2020 collection makes a powerful statement of beauty and optimism, which are essential perspectives as the new year arrives.
