Reading time 2 minutes

The Salvatore Ferragamo 2020 Spring / Summer collection is called Homecoming , and it is in effect a homecoming, it is in Florence that the brand paraded for the first time with the men's collection, always on the occasion of Pitti, and it is here that come back to present the new course signed by Paul Andrew. Yesterday evening piazza della Signoria turned into a catwalk to present the new men's clothing, where the models paraded in the shadow of Palazzo Vecchio and Loggia dei Lanzi, breathing the myth of the Florentine Renaissance thanks to the architecture of the Uffizi by Vasari and to the masterpieces of sculpture by Donatello and Michelangelo, artistic references that pop up here and there in collection prints that celebrate a multicultural and multigenerational vision, where the rules of style are no longer rigid and the Ferragamo man takes a free style step and less focused on the classic. The parka takes the place of a classic blazer, the five-pocket jeans is in leather and with a wide leg while the trousers have a soft fit. The tailored jacket is interpreted in a sporty and functional key. A vast palette of natural colors is saturated by incursions of candy pink, mint green and ultramarine blue, also for accessories and travel bags. Special weaves and embroideries in raffia link womenswear to the masculine universe that incorporates mesh jerseys, affirming the fundamental role of craftsmanship, and outline the image of a hippie-bohemian woman wearing unusual espadrilles, a revised and updated version of the legendary "Kimo" model from 1951 designed by Salvatore Ferragamo.
On the catwalk, a multigenerational cast that includes icons from the past and famous faces of today. Together with the models also the actors Hero Fiennes-Tiffin, Josh Lucas , the Chairman of Sotheby's Michael Berger-Sandhofer and the art director and designer Peter Saville .
