Fashion and Watch Color Trends for Fall 2015

Color Trends for Fall 2015 Fashion and Watches

Cozy up to the hottest colors for Fall 2015, a universally flattering range of nature-inspired hues that make saying goodbye to summer a bit easier.

Reflecting the increasing style-consciousness of today’s man, the menswear shows went beyond the usual neutrals to bring in bolder colors. In the women’s ready-to-wear collections, designers’ use of color recalled some of the biggest style moments of the 20th century, from the Art Deco glamour of the 1920s to the bohemian chic of the 1970s. It’s simple to transition into the new season by making a style statement with a watch in one of these versatile shades.

Cashmere Rose

This muted pink feels vintage and at the same time totally of-the-moment, just as this 70s-inspired Versace dress would be right at home at Coachella. Instead of an in-your-face bubblegum, Cashmere Rose evokes an earthy vibe that is perfectly picked up in the textured leather band of the Versace Dylos Lady VQD010015. Its softness is the ideal counterpoint to classic Versace details like the studs marking the hours and the Greek key pattern surrounding the face.

Biscay Blue

The intensely saturated color in this Alberta Ferretti gown adds to the sumptuousness of the fabric and drape, while also bringing this 1920s-inspired silhouette into the 21st century. (If Jay Gatsby invited you to a party next week, this is what you would wear.) With a timepiece like the Ferragamo Idillio Chronograph FI3030014, you can create your own Gatsby moment. The combination of the rich, modern hue with the timeless luxury of a mother-of-pearl face and yellow gold plating makes it a modern heirloom.

Amethyst Orchid

This beautiful jewel tone is just right for this gem of an evening gown from Tadashi Shoji. The nude underlay emphasizes the rippling skirt, creating a whole range of shades with just one color. The rippling effect on the silver face of the Ferragamo Intreccio FIC010015 is similarly elegant. The motif echoes a structural weaving technique Salvatore Ferragamo often used, called intreccio, layering woven material in a single hue to create deep color and texture.

Oak Buff

Shades of yellow have been standouts for several seasons, and this fall the forecast calls for this deeper yet comforting tone. This look from Zac Posen uses Oak Buff to outstanding effect, the single color playing up the textural contrast of luminous fabric and plush fur. The Versace Vanity P5Q80D999 S999 brings the same impact, with the mix of matte and polished golds in the face and bezel juxtaposed against a textured calfskin band.

Marsala

Christian Dior menswear is consistently sharp-lined and sculptural, but usually sticks to shades of black and gray. This season, Dior Homme stayed true to that classic styling while adding a new neutral—the sophisticated yet earthy Marsala. This versatile shade can be incorporated into any man’s wardrobe. The Ferragamo 1898 Sport FF322 0015 is a simple way to work this color into your look, and with a canvas band it’s as functional as it is stylish.

Dried Herb

Ready to push the color envelope a bit further? This bolder neutral—layered in a variety of textures in this look from Coach—isn’t just for camouflage. Set off against bold black, this organic shade stands out from the crowd. Paired with pops of white and a black leather band in the Fortis Flieger Cockpit 595.11.16 L.01, Dried Herb elevates the look of this modern timepiece.

Stormy Weather

Forget 50 Shades of Grey—this cool, blue-tinged gray is the only shade you’ll need for fall. Gray is the ultimate workhorse neutral in both men’s and women’s wear; you can pair it with ivory or camel, contrast it with pops of brightness, or of course deepen it with black. No matter what, you won’t go wrong. The same can be said for the Gevril Columbus Circle 2006. Like Stormy Weather, it’s handsome but straightforward, with multiple functions and luminous hands for maximum utility.

Cadmium Orange

If you’re ready to take the plunge into some serious color, a statement piece in this vibrant yet understated bright is the way to do it. You can go major, like in this trendy coat from Ami, but you can also take a more subtle approach. A pop of color—like when your cuff reveals the Haurex Caimano N1354UNO—shows that you can have fun with fashion while still being appropriate for the office. With a rubber band and water resistance, this watch is perfect for that winter beach getaway, too.

The best news yet? Fall’s hot colors work for either sex, so there are no limits to how you can style them. And starting off with an exceptional accessory is the ideal way to work one of these new hues into your wardrobe.

Ferragamo WatchesWhen Ferragamo introduced their 1898 Sport Collection to commemorate the year Salvatore Ferragamo was born, these sophisticated interpretations of the classic diver timepiece became an instant success.

These refinements give the watch a tough masculine feel, while maintaining the elegance and sophistication that Ferragamo timepieces are famous for.

Ferragamo Releases 2014 Spring­/Summer Campaign


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Salvatore Ferragamo WatchesAmid much anticipation Italian-based luxury house Ferragamo released its campaign for Spring-Summer 2014. Shot in the balmy environs of California where the sun almost always shines, the ads feature high color and geometric lines, which are inspired by Mexican architect Miguel Angel Aragonés.

Massimiliano Giornetti, Ferragamo’s fashion director who took the top job after working his way up the ranks at the company, chose American Sean O’Pry and Canadian Daria Webowy as his stars. O’Pry sports cool pastels and whites to represent the upcoming temperate seasons. Highlights included blue and bronze colored lightweight jackets and an update of aviator and wayfarer sunglasses that will give anyone an air of cool sophistication. Not to be forgotten is a daring sky blue suit that O’Pry makes look utterly hip.

While the men’s line went colorful, the women’s line presented a neutral color palette. Against the backdrop of bright color, Daria Warbowy modeled menswear inspired coats and dresses that had both an elegant yet flirty quality. Warbowy, also the face of Celine and Balenciaga, is no stranger to Ferragamo, as this is her fourth time representing the label . To make sure O’Pry and Webowy looked their fabulous best, Ferragamo went all out and hired acclaimed duo, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, for campaign photography duties.

The brand known today as Ferragamo started as the company of shoe designer Salvatore Ferragamo. He made a name for himself in Hollywood in the 1920’s when stars clamored for his shoes. But something bothered him. Though his shoes looked fantastic, they weren’t comfortable. The industrious Ferragamo enrolled at USC to study anatomy so his shoes would not only be a delight to the eyes but also to the feet. He cobbled and designed shoes for women such as Marilyn Monroe, Katherine Hepburn and Eva Peron. One of his most famous inventions is the Cage Heel, still a modern showstopper.

Modern-day Ferragamo, still privately owned by the family, is a prestige luxury brand that produces products including watches and ready-to-wear as well as shoes. From its humble beginnings as the shop of shoe designer Salvatore Ferragamo, the company has grown into a fashion empire.

Ferragamo Previews 2014 Fall/Winter Collection

by John Sealander  

For Salvatore Ferragamo, 2014 is all about stripes and outerwear. It is just a matter of time before these new themes appear on the wrists of fashionable men.

Salvatore Ferragamo WatchesSalvatore Ferragamo Creative Director Massimiliano Giornetti surprised many at the latest Milan Fashion Week by departing from the retro vibe often associated with the famous label. The new 2014 Fall/Winter Menswear Collection was all about stripes, tailoring and texture. Industry insiders say that this new collection was heavily influenced by Massimiliano’s current fascination with rug patterns.

Bold stripes are used both horizontally and vertically in this imaginative new Ferragamo collection. A combination of small pinstripes and bold, wide bands of earthy, autumnal and smoky hues are used to break up break up the hems, cuffs and other parts of the Collection’s diverse array of outerwear. A few bright pops of red, purple, orange and blue complete the new look.

This extremely wearable menswear collection features slim jackets that are tailored just above the waist, along with double-breasted blazers, which have been tied at the waist for a rakish and distinctly Italian look. Massimiliano Giornetti makes the most of the slenderizing power of stripes with impeccably tailored, structured slim suits, pants and outerwear. The entire collection is less about the sporty silhouettes of the past and more about impeccable tailoring and new textures.

Massimiliano Giornetti has never been afraid to shake things up and he’s done it again with these intriguing new adaptations of menswear classics. What remains to be seen is how this new look will influence future Salvatore Ferragamo watch collections. Ferragamo’s tradition of craftsmanship and luxurious detailing has already made the brand a favorite with watch aficionados worldwide. These distinctive watches are known for their juxtaposition of exciting and different materials with the iconic symbols of the Ferragamo world. With the 2014 Fall/Winter Collection’s classic sartorial structure and proliferation of bold stripes, it will be interesting to see what fashion forward men will be wearing on their wrists later this year.
