Ferrari swapped the fast lane for the runway back in June 2021, and much to the shock of the fashion world the Rocco Iannone-designed collection was an interesting step in the right direction for the Italian automotive brand. Now, Iannone presents Ferrari’s Fall/Winter 2022-2023 collection at Milan Fashion Week, and this time around it’s the same story, only elevated.

Plenty of tailoring is on offer, but traditional codes have been reinterpreted to work across both men’s and womenswear seamlessly. It’s meant to be attire that can be worn in today’s ever-evolving society, ideal to be transformed from daywear to eveningwear with the switch of a shirt or a jacket for example, which is heightened by the technological advancements that have been used throughout the FW22/23 collection.

For example, cargo trousers are covered in black crystals and shearling has been heat-sealed with a film to help it pick up colors. The camouflage print is Ferrari’s Prancing Horse motif broken down and re-examined before being enlarged and served in multiple colors for a design unique to the brand, while technical filaments and other automotive cues are referenced in alternative prints. Suits and jackets are made from a wearable, thin carbon fiber weave, with more of the same working alongside the aforementioned black crystals and traditional fabrics for something that touches on Ferrari’s supercar background, while iridescent lamé-style fabrics compose more structured suits, most of which are complete with broad shoulders, wide lapels, a snatched waist, and seam-pleated trousers.

Technical applications don’t stop there, as the leather is thermoformed, the cotton drill is enriched with a waterproof technical fiber, brass is galvanized, and the nylon appears reflective. The result includes leather bomber jackets that are padded with Ferrari’s name and motif, a style echoed on scarves as well, and looks that are inherently sporty. Some standouts include the compression knits paired with suit pants that are combined with leather panels for a racing theme and structure, or the technical knits in yellow and black blocks that are paired with baggy leather pants.

To sum up the collection, Iannone adds: “Ferrari is a system in which aesthetic research is never separated from the ethics expressed in its history and it is also the synthesis of that Italian ability to transform creativity into a project. This was my starting point for telling the story of speed, one of our brand’s codes but also an expression of the innovation required by the ongoing changes in society. This gave rise to the narrative connections between speed and technology, light and surface, the idea of the future and its inevitable realization that runs through the entire collection, which, in this way, owns a design method using hybridization of materials and shapes. But it also enhances contamination as a factor that, by opening up to diversity, sets evolutionary processes in motion. I expressed this concept in a feminine and masculine silhouette with clean-cut lines, a fusion of tailoring techniques and noble materials with technological touches.”
