Throughout the Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2024 collection, we see a variety of eras, including the glamorous accents of the 1980s, the minimalism of the 1990s, as well as some flashes from the Ferragamo archive: a twisted rope detail on men’s and women’s sandals translated from a 1956 shoe, handbag hardware drawn from an 80s Ferragamo lighter excavated from a Christmas catalogue, and quilted silhouettes adopted from a 1999 runway collection.
Different fabrications are seen in both tailoring and sportswear silhouettes. Natte wool, nubuck suede, flocked denim, and double-faced cashmere all offer the appearance of glamour but the ease of a new era, distinctly structured and effortless.
A strong array of new accessories are featured throughout the collection including modern takes upon Ferragamo’s geometric cut-out detailing in a new leather shopper and tote are instantly recognizable, yet refreshing. We see a fresh perspective on modern glamour with evening bags ornately embroidered with crystals and coral, paying homage to Marilyn Monroe and continuous motifs from 1950’s Hollywood.
Featured footwear twists tradition and heritage into modernity: through the tubular construction of sandals and a gently curved heel of stilettoes: an apt encapsulation of Ferragamo’s new direction.
