Paul Andrew Is Making Salvatore Ferragamo Cool Once more

It’s the week before his first runway present as the creative director of women’s collections at Salvatore ferragamo belt sale (www.ferragamofactory.com), and Paul Andrew is sitting calmly within the brightly lit showroom of the Florentine company’s headquarters in Milan, overseeing the casting. When he finds a model he likes, he asks his stylist, Jodie Barnes, to «throw a poncho on her» so he can see how she moves. There is an array to select from, each long and mid-size, made within the softest suede or in heavy cotton canvas lined with wild printed silks. The chosen few stomp in them, their hemlines swishing in tune to Paula Abdul’s «Forever Your Lady,» a part of a playlist Andrew put collectively of the most uncool hits of the ’80s. With apple cheeks and boyish beauty that give him the appearance of someone a decade younger, Andrew, 39, picks at his poached salmon salad as he and Barnes again-and-forth in regards to the collection’s very best lady. «She’s someone who’s been up all night time partying,» Barnes says, «and now she’s bought to rise up and feed the pigs. However, you recognize, on the property.» »
The show Andrew is so coolly orchestrating will mark not only his first foray into clothes since his vogue-school days at the Berkshire Faculty of Art and Design, exterior of London, but also ferragamo factory’s first combined men’s and women’s presentation. Andrew joined the corporate in 2016 as the head of women’s shoes, part of a troika of designers that included Fulvio Rigoni, who oversaw women’s wear, and ­Guillaume Meilland, who led Ferragamo’s men’s vogue and equipment. Andrew’s colorful, sexy shoes have been an instantaneous hit, as was Meilland’s men’s wear line, with its elegant delicate tailoring, featherweight knitwear, and sumptuous leather-based items that mined ferragamo factory’s luxurious design heritage. Rigoni’s displays, nonetheless, failed to attach, and after three seasons, Andrew was requested to take over women’s wear, working carefully with Meilland to create a singular vision for the brand.
«I was just a little apprehensive about the way it was going to work,» Andrew admitted earlier that day over breakfast at Milan’s Bulgari Hotel, his house base when he’s not in Florence or New York, where he moved from his native England almost 20 years in the past. «But Guillaume has been superb. I’ve been looking at a number of the silhouettes he created, both for the outerwear and a few of the trousers. We’ve accomplished almost each fitting collectively.» In truth, since Andrew’s promotion, the two designers have met once every three weeks to brainstorm and share inspiration. They will even work collectively to create advert campaigns.
