Staged in the Renaissance church of San Michele, the show of Ferragamo during fashion week began with a perfectly cut mannish cashmere coat, though worn with a charming golden fringed calf-length skirt; followed by an impeccably cut business suit in dark olive. Two sages setting the scene for a classy show. Andrew also offered funnel-neck suede spy coats in tobacco or fiery red for mystic women; deerskin cat-suits worthy of ‘The Avengers’ for his huntresses; and a strict Wren’s dress with military pockets in beige calfskin — worn by Carolyn Murphy for a goddess. One of a half-dozen veteran thirty-something models in this cleverly cast show. A shoe designer by origin, Paul had plenty to chose from in footwear – the heart of the Ferragamo business: great combat boots with contrast laces; variations on the house’s classic pumps; and an excellent new pointy boot with the house’s signature double-loop buckle. The British-born designer also upcycled with wit, after finding a scrap book by Fulvia Ferragamo – Wanda’s daughter, who launched the brand’s silk scarf business – in the archives with cut-out leaves and flowers that inspired prints. He then created some posh hippie woven leather bags, using those autumnal colors and patterns; the material sourced from surplus skins he discovered in a company warehouse.
