Salvatore Ferragamo's Autumn/Winter 2022 women's and menswear collection recently premiered at Milan's Sala delle Cariatidi of Palazzo Reale. The collection's theme taps into global transformations towards casualization since the start of the new decade. The luxury fashion house connects this element to the worldly happenings and contemporary cross-generational morals that have these new conventions, and played a significant role in furthering the reduction formalwear and instead, a higher demand for the informal.

Through employing this occurrence, the collection also exercises a pivotal element that bridges its intention. Its aim roots in showcasing how casual clothing articles can have creation, selection, and sported in a manner similar to formalwear attire such as evening gowns or tuxedos. As part of Salvatore Ferragamo's Autumn/Winter 2022 conceptualization, Ferragamo dismantles the "casual" and all its orthodoxies with the purpose of redefining and reconstructing it in the essence of liberated precision and fluidity while maintaining codes shared between genders.

The collection's womenswear articles include conventional eveningwear profound ruffles composition rather showcased in the form of facile knits. These traditional facets are also prevalent within the collection's knit bodysuit clothed beneath a bonded leather mini skirt, pliable strips of shaved by-product shearling, and a multi-dimensional trench coat that integrates an accompanying wrap belt and scarf. Its dynamic nature correlates with the collection's message as it can be worn in several different styles.

Menswear pieces contain sustainable nylon material as part of the Gancini quilted olive parkas, pullovers, sweatshirts. Athleisurewear sweatpants along with cardigans and outwear sweaters are also included and affix with the collection's informal trope across genders. The collection's footwear features unisex evocative sports-like compositions with a rainbow-later sole that denotes Ferragamo's 1938 rainbow shoe. Judy Garland was the first to don the suede footwear piece that year and is currently available in a crotched cotton version.

Other footwear styles include snow and combat boots, moccasins, and hikers with airy lug soles and Gancini hardware. The label's Studio handbag makes its premiere in new proportions along with a soft bucket bag debut which also incorporates the signature Gancini closure and a studded base with Ghiacciaio Blue, Nebia Green, Agrifoglio Blue, Aghi Green, and Amaretti Pink hues.
