Salvatore Ferragamo

Spring-Summer 2012 – Silk dresses and glossy hair swept to the side made for a lustrous collection. In its nature, the clothing was exotic and tropical as prints were formulated to represent a jungle environment: leopards and tigers were hidden amongst orchidaceous plants, at other times, the leopard print encompassed whole dresses. The rich colour palette made for clothing that was very flamboyant, as brilliant prints graced maxi-dresses or collided against each other. The billowing items were light and floaty due to the silk composition. The silk scarf dress was a paramount theme coming in raspberry, fuchsia and magenta. The jumpsuits and the dresses were tied at the hip, or at the side revealing a glimmer of flesh – flesh being shown everywhere with the slink clothes as shoulders were on show, as were backs with halter necks tops and dresses. It was a sexy and seductive collection.
