“Italy” is the only word that is needed to talk about Ferragamo’s Spring- Summer 2020 Collection.
Italy in an 80’s hot summer, where a young Paul Andrew and his brother, accompanied by his mother, walked the streets with patterned Bermuda shorts. Italy in the form of the famous Neptune Fountain in Florence restored thanks to the Ferragamo contribution.
For this season, Paul Andrew sought to design a colorful, light and innocent collection, a tribute to the joy of living. He achieved his goal by the use of leather (a surprising and peculiar choice to portray the summer) dyed of subtle oranges and blues, pinks and greens.
Leather in the form of dresses tightens at the waist, bubble skirts, baggy shirts, and high-waisted trousers and Bermuda shorts. Where prints and patterns appear, they do so with the shape of the Neptune Fountain in greens and blues, or as flowers in marsala, color of the year in 2015.
In this collection, Paul Andrew presents his Viva shoe, inspired by the original design of the Vara, created by Fiamma Ferragamo in 1979. In his version, Paul Andrew presents a shoe with a much more pointed shape and a larger bow than his predecessor, and I just loved it.
For this Spring-Summer 2020, Ferragamo managed to catch and transform the beauty of the 80’s and of the summer in a collection that has captured the Mediterranean.
