At Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2017, Elegance Comes in Bright Orange Fur
Christian Dior alum Fulvio Rigoni has been at the helm of Salvatore Ferragamo's womenswear for two seasons now, and, like his menswear counterpart Guillaume Meilland, the designer seems to be having no problems settling in. For Fall 2017 at Milan Fashion Week this weekend, Rigoni brought the sprezzatura seen on the streets to the runway with the house's usual flair for leather goods—stacked heels, boots, and accordion clutches—and studded them with quirks like a mauve leather blazer, arched fur collars, a sleeveless asymmetrical parka, and furry gloves that stretched almost up models' entire arms. Those accents came mostly courtesy of Rigoni's '70s inspiration: an early showcase of sporty luxury in a vintage Serge Lutens ad for the Japanese brand Jun Ropé. See how he interpreted it for the Italian crowd from backstage, here.
