Euro Crunch, Financial Crisis ? Well, there is no denying that the global market is definitely going through a phase of gloom however the on going Milan Fashion Week is definitely bringing in a positive message of hope and bright days ahead. Look at Salvatore Ferragamo's vibrant and colourful collection for Spring 2013. The collection is energetic, youthful and refreshing. It looked like as if the entire runaway was painted with vibrant colours of life and the beautiful world that we live in.
With an explosion of colours like - spearmint, fluorescent pink, turquoise, mint, blue, orange, yellow, red and greens the designer, Massimiliano Giornetti took his inspiration from the work of English Painter David Hockney & L.A's pop art culture in the seventies.
The 70’s silhouette with its light tailored clothing added a new dimension to an urban men's fashion. Each and every look was accessorised with tri colour athletic shoes which injected a sporty feeling to the collection. Some of the key pieces of the collection were - light weight cotton blazers, sheer knits, long light coat, carrot pants, orange rain coat & double sided cotton trenches - all in abundance of colour and spirit of Spring/Summer.
By the end of the show, bright colours were gradually withdrawn and one could see white line up of suits some with touch of colour at the collars,pockets,hems and lapels giving an interesting twist to the collection.
No wonder why Massimiliano Giornetti called his collection - "Vitamins”. i call it colour therapy :)
