Inspired by mid-century Scandinavian furniture designs by the likes of Finn Juhl and Børge Mogensen, Paul Andrew and his design team literally built this collection from within the confines of their own homes. Constructions are minimal and uncomplicated, while upcycled leather has been built into jackets or panelled like frames to hold an empire dress together. Industrial zippers and oversized pockets lend a utilitarian vibe to the collection.
The standout piece is a vermillion dress cut on the bias and cinched at the waist via a tan leather belt, echoing what looks like a nod to Mogensen’s The Spanish Chair. This understated collection proves that, sometimes, less is more, and with Salvatore Ferragamo looking to reduce waste while placing a stricter emphasis towards responsibly sourced raw materials, Andrew is on the right track of driving the company towards a more environmentally conscious and ethically aware luxury house.
