Giornetti additionally riffed on the wedge’s familiar architecture with an open-toe snakeskin mule. Each sneakers have been nice looking, a strong basis for a set that likewise tapped into the Ferragamo heritage.
Giornetti opened with a camel-colored cape trimmed in snakeskin, the swagger of which was matched by its practicality. Snakeskin was one of many show’s dominant motifs, either as the principle occasion, within the type of a python coatdress or a mid-calf A-line skirt, or as embellishment, paneling the entrance of rib-hugging dresses and cropped, sporty jackets. The opposite large message was knitwear. Finely ribbed dresses clung to the torso before falling gently to under the knee. These were fluid and elegant—in tune with the home’s basic roots. The collection may’ve used more color alongside the lines of the vivid green knit halter-neck dress close to the end, but nonetheless, this was a sensible outing for Giornetti.
