Salvatore Ferragamo - for men

The atmosphere of the Salvatore Ferragamo show was a misty autumn day in New York with projected videos of New York City cabs and rainy streets on the walls, and the floors, dressed to look like asphalt, were slicked with wet. I was immediately reminded of the movie "Dark City" with its influences of expressionist movies and film noir.

And indeed "noir" or "black" could be seen as a theme of this collection as the show was all almost black: blue-black, green-black, silver-black, which give an effect of black without using real black. I liked especially the petrol and dark blue shades and the use of different materials and different textures to create an interesting contrast in the colors.
