Fulvio Rigoni Debuts Salvatore Ferragamo Spring/Summer 2017 Collection

It’s always hard to see a label lose its creative director and for someone else in the company to unexpectedly step in to keep the ball rolling as smoothly as possible. That is the case with the Salvatore Ferragamo house as the spring/summer 2017 collection showcased on the Milan Fashion Week runway was created by Fulvio Rigoni, the head of design for the women’s ready-to-wear section, after longtime creative director Massimiliano Giornetti exited the scene following his February women’s show.

Rigoni seems to have been a good choice tough as his vision for where the house should be heading seems sound enough, the use of the top trends, particularly athleisure and a feminine air, brought to the forefront of the collection’s creation. With 43 different looks available to us, it was rather lovely to see so many bold colors on the catwalk, from the bright yellows to the deep reds and different shades of blues and greens. We even had a gorgeous melon pink suit that the professional world would be rejoicing in.

Overall, there was quite a bit of energy to be found and the collection itself was of a more mature taste, with a corporate vision and a love for the female form that appears to quite easily draw attention. While the sportier nature is a bit lost throughout, the general outlook is more fun and flirty, simple yet professional, a working woman who also knows how to have fun.

The sleeves come in varying lengths, the hems are generally always falling about the knees and the appearance of pants is a lovely addition for the woman, who prefers to be more comfortable throughout the day and is not as much into the skirted outfits. There is a certain puffiness appearing here and there, either on trousers or particularly on sleeves, giving the collection an intriguing addition of trends not found everywhere yet for the spring.

Some rather lovely selections found on the Salvatore Ferragamo spring/summer 2017 runway include the show how opens with – floral print and knee-length, with half sleeves slightly puffed at the shoulders and a higher neckline. The high-waist narrow skirt with the fluted hem caught our attention as well, the cropped anorak equally enticing as they came into view made in some lovely fabrics that appeared quite comfortable from our perch.

Floral dresses appeared all over, but it was the stark and simple colors that caught our attention best. They are not high impact of course, but they make for a great ready-to-wear lineup, albeit playing a bit too much on the safe side. We can appreciate that as well, particularly when you have so many designers adding way too much to their collections and merely convoluting the whole thing.

Finally, the footwear is what will be selling like hotcakes by Salvatore Ferragamo, shoes being the house’s best feature in any case. Wedge sandals appeared by the dozen, while crocheted sock shoes went well with the sportier pieces on the runway. Some criticize the fact that even the shoes did not wow us, and while that is correct, we definitely enjoyed seeing the ladies clad in these designs.
