Thinking about those architectures where the structural element also has a decorative function, Sole Ferragamo chooses to reconsider the ancient crinoline, not hiding it again, but bringing it outside, on the surface.

Aware of the need of not consuming new resources in order to protect our ecosystems, Sole wants to use her creativity to transform resources already existing. “Looped” has been realized in leather and fabric. The leather is chosen from remnants of the luxury fashion industry; the textile part is made by selvedge, the natural waste of the weaving process. The leather has been used to create the supporting structure of the dress, and the fabric to vertically connect the leather loops.

Sole strives to minimize the amounts of offcuts she produces herself in her making process, using the material responsibly. The leather structure has been created from concentric circles from one leather surface to minimize the offcuts.
