Architectural Inspiration in New York Fashion Week 2009

New York Fashion Week just ended a few weeks ago, and Massimiliano Giornetti, Ferragamo's head menswear designer, directly stated as getting inspiration for his pieces from Los Angeles' architecture. He pointed out the Getty Center as his favorite building and said, "It's geometric, sculptural, contemporary form clad in an ancient material, all located on a site like the Acropolis in Athens."

Giornetti's show in September displayed the designer's emphasis on the types of material used and the structure of the outfits, as he paired puffy jackets with silk trousers. His collection closely adhered to modern, architectural elements with the usage of different shapes, fluidity, texture, and an overall sleekness.
