>> Czarist Russia and Eastern Europe were the touch points for Massimiliano Giornetti's Fall 2012 Salvatore Ferragamo collection. The result? A romantic mix of elevated peasant silhouettes and precise military shapes. There were off-the-shoulder tops and gypsy skirts came in brocade or frothy sheers, with elaborate lace or gilded embroidery providing an element of luxe exoticism. Double-breasted coats and suits were sharply cut in greige astrakhan or rich navy wool and decorated with piping, epaulets, and rows of shiny gold buttons.
