INFASHIONITY at MFW

IMG_0259

After London Collection: Men, INFASHIONITY packed a suitcase again for a quick trip to the italian capital of fashion: Milan. But the special show I had the chance to attend was from a brand whose origins are from Florence.. Discover a new look and my review of the Salvatore Ferragamo FW 15-16 show.

My first time attending a runway show was exactly a year ago, when I attended the Les Hommes show in Milan. It is always a very exciting occasion and a moment when a brand or designer can truly express their vision. This season I’ve also learned to enjoy showroom presentations and will talk about the one I attended in Milan in a following article. But first let’s discover what striked me from the Ferragamo collection.

Ferragamo Fall-winter 15-16

« Tactile elegance » – the mysterious journey of an elegant adventurous man through an enchanted fall forest.

As soon as one sat inside Palazzo Mezzanotte where the show was taking place, the mood was set.

Digital walls showcased moving bushes and trees, from which birds suddenly flew away. These very birds were actually flying away to become prints on some of the collection’s coats.

Melancolic piano-driven music was already playing.

This poetic and mysterious atmosphere made me feel goosebumps as soon as the show commenced.

Big Scarves

A grand entrance was made by the first look and model thanks to a big, big scarf. Oversized knitted scarves were one of the first key element that stood out.

Color Palette

Described as “woody and nocturnal”, the color palette was very autumnal, reminding me at times of falling leaves, thanks to shades of deep red, olive green, camel and beige.

When used, the color grey was associated with lighter grey shades, or put next to an intense blue, when not decorated with figurative birds or animals.

Craftmanship

The collection definitely showed the House’s mastery of working with fabrics: woven, knit, and leather as well as precise tailoring. Pants were relaxed but still neatly cut while jackets were often double-breasted.

Overall the collection was a sensual experience, as each look showcased layering, each layer having its own fabric. It is this fabric contrast accentuated by deep colors and intricate prints or embroidery that gave the collection all its romance and sophistication.

KAKI AND GREY

My outfit for that day was also about contrast as I paired two colors together, kaki and grey. While perhaps an unsual combination, I think it works great and helped me to look chic in order to attend the prestigious brand’s show.

FASHION IS ALSO ABOUT PEOPLE

Another thing I’ve discovered this season is that fashion brings people together and I’ve had the chance to meet a lot of people very easily as well as connecting in “real life” with people I only knew from the virtual world.
