Ferragamo Fall 2011 was probably one of my favorite collections of any designer to date. It had that kind of humor that I look for in clothes but still had a strong sense of Italian tailoring. I swear to god, there’s some kind of forcefield around Italy that keeps the most seasoned tailors…
This has got me thinking about how every designer has a fundamental message that is represented through their work. The message indicates to people who they are and what they are all about.
But as Jannuzzi says, while some designers build on previous motifs and designs, others will take an entirely new approach and do something that has little to do with their last collection. In taking on a new aesthetic, does the message of that particular designer change, or is it something that stays the same, because it is fundamental to their brand?
