Ferragamo Spring-Summer 2018 men’s collection, designed by Guillaume Meilland is all about the easy going, ever so chic lifestyle and the understated elegance of the sun-kissed Italian and French Riviera.

The essence of a collection always begins with the fabrics. Salvatore Ferragamo sets the mood with a gorgeous breezy palette of earth-tones, ivory, gentle pinks, and light blues with pops of deep mahogany.

In solids or decorated with subtle marine patterns featuring wreathes of corals and seahorses, all the fabrics are used for Bermuda shorts, coats, and jackets. In a similar vein, spongy textures add a distinctive twist to a range of airy polo-shirts and zipped cardigans.

Look out for the collection and get ready to pick up some new outfits!
