Shopping during a period of uncertainty is all about being smart, even if it's for something as non-essential as fashion. It's totally acceptable to want to treat yourself now and then, especially when things aren't exactly looking their best. That just means that luxurious treats need to be even more considered.
Forget about trends. We all know that they're fleeting and not necessarily applicable to everyone. What matters most, is knowing your own personal style and let that dictate the pieces you'll be acquiring and investing on as part of your own style arsenal.
It's part of the fundamentals of Salvatore Ferragamo's pre-fall 2020 collection—a return to classic silhouettes but reinvigorated with new details and constructions. Yet at the same time, never too contemporary. These are pieces that combine the best of Salvatore Ferragamo's heritage with modern sensibilities, and crafted to stand the test of time and tastes.
The ones that always work
Office dress codes might have relaxed, but that doesn't mean you show up with less-than-stellar shoes. The sleek REE loafers feature a classic horsebit detail done in Salvatore Ferragamo's signature Gancini hardware that's certain to add a level of sophistication, whether you're in a tailored two-piece or cuffed chinos. Or opt for the equally distinguished RIBEN loafers. Topped off with the new 'SF' logo script—a fine sartorial touch that's reminiscent of personalised initials—it's a handsome option should you decide to switch things up with brown leather footwear. A crossbody bag in an all-over Gancini emboss (perfect for those of us who prefer keeping our hands free) and the leather TORNABUONI 1927 tote bag emblazoned with subtle branding, complete the set of dependable, professional accompaniments.
The off-day companions
But just because we're talking about style investments, they don't necessarily have to be boring. Or in other words, safe. Salvatore Ferragamo's pre-fall 2020 offering includes a nylon crossbody bag (designed to look structured but is in fact, quite supple and soft) that features a contrasting coloured lining. It's a detail that no one would notice until you open the bag up and reach in for your wallet or keys. For something a tad more brazen: a pair of white leather sneakers crafted with panels of Gancini canvas in beige and black—part sporty and part modern dandy.
The heavy-duty stompers
The best kinds of investments are the ones that are incredibly versatile. Chunky, dad sneakers can only get you so far. Go for chunky soled footwear instead—robust and work well in almost any situation. Salvatore Ferragamo's ROSCO boots are cut high and resemble combat boots, but thoughtfully designed with elastic side panels so that you don't have to fuss with the laces all the time. The RUDY derby is the kind of classic workwear shoe that goes incredibly well with denim and grounds loose tailoring immaculately. What more can you ask from investment pieces?
