Salvatore Ferragamo at Louvre

Yesterday fashion house Salvatore Ferragamo presented Resort 2013 collection at the Louvre in Paris, France.

Until the 25th of June The Louvre exhibits Da Vinci's great unfinished masterpiece, an oil painting of the Virgin and Saint Anne dating from about 1510 and featuring drawings and other preparatory works from the later years of the Italian master's life: 'Saint Anne, Leonardo Da Vinci's Ultimate Masterpiece'.
As a reward for sponsoring the exhibit, Ferragamo found itself in the enviable position of being the first Italian fashion house to stage a runway presentation at the museum, which took place under the arcades of the Denon wing.

Creative director of Salvatore Ferragamo, Massimiliano Giornetti about the resort 2013 collection: "It's Slow Fashion, which is not just about precious materials, but also the time that goes into each piece. It's about the old masters, but with a young spin."
He cited as inspiration notions such as the sensuality of the first rays of sun on one's skin (something that the audience, shivering in the house's silk cashmere scarves, could only dream about). The clothes themselves were about as couture as they could get. From the house's tradition of primitive weaves, Giornetti recast "craft" with a rock edginess, in laced-up, perforated, crocheted, and latticed leather dresses, skirts, and halter tops, many intricately woven with sequins and pierced with delicate silver rings. Shimmying fringed knits, boots in snakeskin or molten silver dots, and tassled handbags rounded out a lineup in delicate shades of blush, sand, and palest gray, a palette the designer chose specifically in homage to the surroundings. "It's super-modern and yet connected with the classics because every piece is the product of a tradition of ancient craft," he said in an interview by Tina Isaac for "The Ferragamo girl is cool, but she's got culture."                                   

Among the models were Karolina Kurkova, Bianca Balti and Isabeli Fontana.

Here a glimpse of the collection.
