For the Ferragamo Spring-Summer 2024 collection, Creative Director Maximilian Davis aimed for lightness, effortlessness, and purity. He explored and evolved the codes he had developed for the House while imbuing his distinct aesthetic with organic ease by drawing on the relationship between balance and tension. In fact, the collection finds inspiration in the situated contrasts of Italy’s Arte Povera movement, which often positioned natural materials alongside industrial elements and elevated the everyday through careful consideration and draws parallels between the spirit of Italian and Caribbean dress codes. Contrasts also unravel with the slouching insouciance expressed in the worn texture of leather tailoring, while pristine mid-century tailoring is slashed into fluidity, and with the subversive interplay between restraint and freedom. And with the perverse sensibility inherent to Davis’ work that remains quietly omnipresent – through elegant day dresses paired with high patent boots or cut deep at the chest, men’s loungewear shorts cropped high on the thigh, and T-shirts twisted as though quickly pulled on – the collection proves how high it's willing to take our style.
Humble linens and cotton are approached with rigorous finesse, sculptural wooden accessories and details polished to perfection, and precise silhouettes expressed in natural fabrics. In short, every detail was handled with perfection.
