SALVATORE FERRAGAMO SPRING/SUMMER 2015 MILAN FASHION WEEK

WHILE a catwalk is invariably most about the clothes, if you lowered your eye line a little this morning at Salvatore Ferragamo there was just as interesting a story to spy – a monochrome and modern take on the original rainbow sandal wedge so synonymous with the house. Solid and chunky, it brought a renewed feel to the collection and a brand that is out and out gloss – because it felt so right for now. Who, after all, isn’t sporting a clompy shoe? But it also reinforced what was going on above the knee too. That wedge with its rippling sole echoing the rib knits on bandage-style dresses that sculpted the silhouette into summer dress shapes. And while there were lots of sundress options, elsewhere – with all its cape coats and thread fringing on prim jackets – there seemed to be more emphasis on spring, autumnal even, dressing.
