As far as in-between seasons are concerned, resort with its breezy presentation calendar (roughly May-July) could not be more in tune with its existential origins — the island retreat. The near total disunity between designers presenting their resort collections as opposed to the rigidity of the fall / winter and spring / summer fashion weeks has made for a delightful surprise on occasion. Take for example the latest Salvatore Ferragamo resort 2012 collection by Massimiliano Giornetti, which was only Tuesday shown at the James B. Duke Mansion in New York. On the day, Ford’s Sigrid Agren, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Delfine Bafort, Valerija Kelava, and Maryna Linchuk featured in the presentation. Shown a full seven weeks after Chanel‘s stroll along the French Riviera and two days after the menswear shows in Paris concluded, this Salvatore Ferragamo resort collection rings freshly in the mind. The elegant surroundings of the Duke mansion echoed an elegance that surely must have provided an inspiration for this collection of Giornetti’s whilst the casting of Sigrid, Hanne Gaby, Delfine, Valerija, and Maryna surely did it absolutely no harm whatsoever.
