Seeing the body as a powerful machine is where Ferrari thrives. Creative director Rocco Iannone designed with precise shapes, sharp contours, and soft curves – all of which highlighted the body – in his Fall/Winter 2024 collection titled The Body. The Energy. The Light.

A red turtleneck mini dress – the first look – paired with patent leather opera gloves, matching cuissard boots, a bowling bag, and futuristic wire-framed glasses signified the beginning of seven back-to-back Ferrari red monochrome looks. The two after, all red but finished with black boots and gloves, led the collection into all-black looks. Black then transitioned to deep grey, to chrome, to light silver, to creamy white, to midnight blue, to indigo, to mocha. The running theme in this collection was monochrome – when a look wasn’t all one colour, it was simply accessorised with another one. 

Models – wearing jackets with emphasised shoulders, silky pyjama-esque trousers with stretchy Ferrari branded waistbands, and oversized trench coats – strutted through rows of guests, making their way around the circular runway until reaching the middle, where two pianos and two harps serenaded the space. 

Familiar faces like Irina Shayk and Amelia Grey graced the runway. Shayk was clad in a dark grey wool coat with a red satin lining, a black mock neck bodysuit, black patent leather ballerina heels, and a large GT bag, while Grey wore an oversized vest and jeans in indigo denim (covered in resin to appear liquid and patent-like), matching heels, and black fur gloves. Other looks included drop waist satin dresses, crisp tailored suits, textured silver velvet tops, asymmetrical fur skirts, and cashmere knitwear.

With the bags, accessories, and shoes, Ferrari’s innovation and craftsmanship truly shined. The GT bag was reintroduced in shearling and Nappa leather with padded detailing, while the iconic Maranello clutch was found in red with gradient crystals. Couture fur and patent leather gloves, titanium eyewear, snorkelling goggle-looking sunglasses, and chunky abstract gold jewellery elevated the classic wardrobe staples. Handcrafted patent leather ballet shoes with a square toe, sporty driving shoes, and leather décolleté heels, whilst simple in their design, served as a coordinated extension of the clothing.

The final three looks – two tailored suits and one floor-length evening gown with a cape – were designed in a lush organza that faded from black to burgundy and vice versa. 

The whole collection felt quintessentially Ferrari. It was sexy, passionate, and emotional. Similarly to their cars, the clothing – and models’ hair – was streamlined and slick, using colour and shape as a way to explore the body’s sensual form.
