"Pre-millennial sci-fi classics Gattaca, Until The End Of The World, and The Matrix were all cinematic influences - past imaginings of the future that have shaped today."

After's Paul Andrew last fashion show at the Besana roundabout in Milan, coupled with the screening of Luca Guadagnino's short film, he has caught our eyes once again with a fashion show that displays a new dimension to Salvatore Ferragamo's Fall Winter 2021 collection; a collection of uniforms for a positive and diverse future.

A futuristic collection inspired by cult sci-fi cinematography from cinematic masterpieces such as " Matrix", "Gattaca" or "Until The End of The World", the collection was showcased across luminous tunnels, postmodern architecture and crystal prisms that refract light onto the clothes from the new collection, titled "Future Positive", showcasing futuristic innovations and techniques that make the heritage of the Italian Maison perfectly matched with today.

“In fashion, the past exerts a gravity - we are always drawn to it. For this season I wanted to invert that physics. The objective was to engineer a collection that sees the present through a prism of the future – unleashing a multitude of fresh perspectives. Pre-millennial sci-fi classics Gattaca, Until The End Of The World, and The Matrix were all cinematic influences - past imaginings of the future that have shaped today. For this ‘Future Positive’ collection I imagined the standard contours of today’s uniforms as fossilised remnants of a long-forgotten past, freed of all associations of class, colour or creed. This collection proposes new uniforms for a utopian future in which diversity and positivity combine to transform our world for the better. As Salvatore Ferragamo once said of his own work, this collection is dedicated ‘to all those who must walk’ – at a time when we must be united in our determination to reimagine, rebuild, progress," says Paul Andrews in a press statement.
