For SS 2016 Salvatore Ferragamo presents the Ferragamo Off-Duty project, a special footwear collection inspired by a new casual and sporty mood, without gender distinctions. This collection includes shoes designed to be worn by him and her – in sizes 3½ to 15 – reflecting the unisex lifestyles of the new generation, a highly popular segment in international markets.
With its streamlined design which looks to sportscar drivers, the driver – one of Ferragamo’s best-sellers – stands out for its distinctive sole with rubber inserts. The unique tubular production technique makes it incredibly flexible, an example of craft expertise also in line with that of the high-end collections.
Although it exudes a more classical feel, the moccasin reveals just as much attention to the need for comfort and versatility. Stylish and understated, brimming with details and hand-stitching, it sports slender lines and fine leather soles with a burnished-finish profile, embellished further by a rounded contour on the heels. The double Gancio buckle is the distinctive signature feature, alongside a wide range of materials and this season’s colour combinations.
Young, street-savvy style shines out from the range of sneakers. High-tech solutions – including the new running-inspired extra-light rubber sole, flexible and ergonomic – come in tandem with an eclectic mix of materials and colours, always the iconic marks of Ferragamo’s DNA. With modern, creative flair, the lace up sneaker combines parts in plain calfskin, patent, soft split leather, suede and Airspring print fabric, or Piuma print leather in three colourways: wine-blue-grey-brown, dark rain and burgundy, sand and rose.
Ferragamo Off-Duty effortlessly blends shoemaking traditions with casual wear and street-fashion. Style and beauty are interwoven with considerations of practicality and comfort, and the hand-made comes face-to-face with high-tech. The entire footwear collection is designed for a metropolitan-inspired unisex wardrobe yet is still crafted in iconic Salvatore Ferragamo style.
Ferragamo Off-Duty is now available at Salvatore Ferragamo boutiques.
