Jumpsuit of the Day: Salvatore Ferragamo at Milan Fashion Week

Salvatore Ferragamo F/W 2011 RTW collection

Massimiliano Giornetti, creative director or Salvatore Ferragamo sent a stunning collection down the runway last Sunday at Milan Fashion Week. He used blacks, whites and greys in a variety of shades, prints and textures to create fashion forward separates, dresses and gowns. In fact, there was no colour to be seen throughout the entire show! However, lack of colour does not mean lack of style. The pieces shown at Ferragamo were exceptionally designed and  impeccably tailored.

These two jumpsuits were part of the Ferragamo collection. They appear to be feminine variations of the typical male suit, fit for any female boss at a bank, or a law firm. The phrase “women empowerment” comes to mind. The first is a pinstripe jumpsuit, worn with a matching blazer and trench. Though the pieces themselves may be extraordinary, it would have been nice to see the jumpsuit alone– it would be interesting to see what kind of sleeves (if any) accompany that plunging neckline. The second is black and simple. The tapered trouser and  contrast collar make the garment wearable for the workplace, and the cuffed, baggy sleeve allow it to be worn even at night. The models’ tightly pulled back hair and pink-cherry lips complete the overall look of the chic workwear.
