ETRO SS19 PACIFIC ZEN

etro ss19

For Spring Summer 2019, Veronica Etro cast a net along the edges of the Pacific and returned with a collection richly inspired by the languid ease of coastal paradise. Starting with the lure of California surf culture: the sport-minded and sun-kissed freedom of Venice Beach’s bohemian tribes. We move towards the postcard perfect landscape of Hawaii, where each sunset is worth writing home about and the natural landscape - seashells, hibiscus flowers, palm fronds - provide all the accessories you could ever dream of. The journey continues on Japan, where inspiration is mined from the country’s denim culture, sport history and finely perfected graphic traditions. But like the ocean’s tides, the borders between influences do not stand stable, mixing with Etro’s emblematic design codes: Paisley, patchwork and customarily rigorous construction. The result is a collection that is joyous, free and effortlessly Etro. 

Materials this season are built for oxygen seekers but maintain their luxurious standards. Workwear inspired jeans and long robes are a patchwork of patterned jacquard denim. Slim-fitting knit suits and minidresses masquerade as wetsuits, not to be mistaken for actual neoprene used on colorful bolero jackets. Craft- inspired crochet and macramé creates mini dresses and patchwork knitwear. Embroidered cotton is so finely wrought on matching trouser and shirt sets it appears lace-like. Quilted kimono-style robes and terrycloth- lined short sleeved cotton coats are the apex of casual cool. A mini beaded cotton shirt dress features a funky raffia-fringed hem. Etro’s signature dresses in crêpe de chine, georgette and pekin silk are a mix of pattern and pop: ruffled tiers, plissé skirts, patchwork motifs, delicate embroidery and contrasting patterned ribbons provide their ecstatic decoration. 

Beginning with saturated shades of indigo and coral, the collection melts into a riot of pale citrus colors - lemon, lime, tangerine, grapefruit - before circling back to black, white and cream. Prints are as easygoing as the beach-worshipping girls that inspired them, featuring blown up technicolor Paisley motifs, Matisse- inspired cut outs, Japanese calligraphy, tropical florals, bandana patterns and Ikat-inspired designs. Tropical sunset scenes - an homage to blooming Hawaiian shirts - are found on printed shirts and silk trousers or embroidered on mini jacquard wrap dresses. 

Silhouettes are loose and free, while maintaining elements of structure. Judo style jackets are belted at the waist with long cotton bows. Fluttering silk dresses are finished with drawstrings at the wrist and waist for comfortable complexity. Trousers are wide and soft with room to move, run or chill; billowing kaftans practically float on the body and slouchy shantung silk suits give a hint of 1970s glamour. 

The Etro woman this season comes equipped: sun shaded in a wide brimmed cotton hat finished with a net, holding a Paisley patterned surf board in her arms, wearing scuba booties on her feet, also worn by international surfer Victoria Vergara, ranked as one of the top ten of the world and Maribel Koucke. Her jewelery is sourced from the sea: with crystal encrusted seashells hanging from her ears and ringing her neck. Etro’s iconic rainbow bag comes embroidered with a braided strap, while slouchy carryalls feature thick rope closures. Japanese- inspired quilted thong sandals and wide Obi belts round out the look, an ode to all women inspired by waves.

Ferragamo Autumn Winter 2018 Campaign

Salvatore-Ferragamo-Fall-Winter-2018-Campaign

Suffused by a dynamic and diverse new spirit, a peerlessly exquisite historical Italian house suddenly echoes with life, laughter and youth again.

For Autumn Winter 2018 Salvatore Ferragamo presents neither one Ferragamo woman, nor one Ferragamo man - instead inviting a broad community of models to reflect the glorious multiplicity of today in a patchwork of characters under the creative direction of Paul Andrew. Shot by Harley Weir and featuring Stella Tennant, Shanelle Nyasiase, Rianne Van Rompaey, Xiao Wen Ju, Piero Mendez and Edoardo Sebastianelli, this milestone Ferragamo campaign represents a fresh page in the house’s remarkable history. 

The new ‘Ferragaristocracy’ as imagined by Andrew is defined by its commitment to progress - because to embrace change is the key to success in contemporary culture. Andrew says: “One of the original inspirations of the collection featured in this campaign was the Duchess of Devonshire - a formidable personification of old-school elegance and privilege. And her grand-daughter Stella inhabits that refreshed persona with an effortless grace. But in 2018 you don’t have to be to the manor born to have a compelling and stylish manner about you. Curiosity, taste and a breadth of vision - not a narrowness - is what counts today.”

Punchy color, rich texture and flowing deformalized silhouettes punctuated with Andrew’s signature Ferragamo shoes, boots and accessories - starring the new Ferragamo Studio bag - make up the grammar of Ferragamo’s revived visual language. Harley Weir deploys her realist’s eye and analogue authenticity to present an imagined house-party whose guests hail from across the globe. What's brought them together? The newly-rebooted Salvatore Ferragamo aesthetic as defined by Andrew in partnership with Menswear Design Director Guillaume Meilland.

Andrew says: “I want Ferragamo to assert a distinctly special voice. The best way to do that is to be collaborative, inclusive and open - which is why I’m so excited to be working alongside talents like Guillaume, Harley, and this powerful cast of models. Together we’ve found a harmony that truly reflects the bold and positive change that’s afoot at Salvatore Ferragamo.”
