SALVATORE FERRAGAMO FOR MEN

SALVATORE FERRAGAMO MEN’S AUTUMN WINTER 2011

Let's start at a sneak peek backstage where the handsome hunks huddled before strutting their abs and rest body on stage. This being the autumn/winter 2011 collection, shirtless men are thin on the ground, sad to report as semi-nude men usually sprout for the spring/summer collection. We cannot blame the designer for this oversight as very few men will consider walking around the house shirt-less let alone the streets.

See what I mean, all wrapped with only the faces showing

His ass got in the way but it is ok as it looks cute

I like the grungy look of guy at right and chocolate look of the other

If sky is not blue then wear blue to compensate

Pristine as driven snow

Lucky the model has not put on weight as his waistline is being checked for stray inches

Mirror mirror on the wall...


OK, HERE ARE THE PROPER CATWALK PICTURES FOR THOSE WHO PREFER THE ENTIRE LOOK WITH NO HORSING AROUND

Men’s Collection Autumn / Winter 2011 - 2012

Shadow play in the intimacy of an autumn afternoon: snapshots in the warm diffused lighting of a cosy interior.

Man in his unfailing elegance. Subtle blends of colour quietly explode in a two-tier palette: the warm and enveloping universe of natural hues that include the neutrality of winter wheat, delicate pastel tones of tusk, the extremes of copper rust and the depth of cocoa to a series of colder colours comprised of jasper, greens and light blues ranging from storm blue to the unexpected, vibrant intensity of emerald. Two parallel courses, two attitudes that meet to offset the unexpected use of sumptuous ivory.

Warm, sensorial luxury generated by sophisticated combinations. Soft, prestige materials recreate masculine forms: the natural cowhide bag is oversize, the Hobo looks like a travel bag, the capacious backpack is made of delicate hides, the saddlebag and the bracelet have saddle stitching. Colours, finishes and references to the noble art of equestrianism are finely interwoven in a legacy of intimate, personal experience.

The nonchalance of an individualistic and unpredictable style. A man in a hat wears lace-ups as shiny as a saddle, with crafted stitching but rubber soles. Or low boots with leather soles pointed up by high-waist bootcut trousers that accentuate the leg.

Sophistication that feeds on details and contrasts. The classic cashmere overcoats in tones of camel have the same relaxed elegance as an heirloom borrowed from the family wardrobe. At the same time, the military flavoured outerwear items are tastefully modulated by neutral shades and impalpably fine yarns. In a dynamic response to the fluid volumes and oversize dimensions of some of the trenches and double-breasted overcoats, the silhouette has grown closer to the body: from the crisp fit of tailoring, with longer jackets and pointed lapels, to the small proportions of the ribbed reefer and the high-necked cashmere pullovers, the true leitmotiv of the season. The precious silk used in the shirts, the new pattern of this season’s pinstripe, ties that echo the fabric of the woollen shirts: as if creating a new uniform in which every element has new meanings.

Chic is a blending of tradition and modernity, soft and rigorous, warm and cold, a mixture of characters, a prodigious balancing act that becomes an exclusive lifestyle.

THE END
