Grace, style and refinement are qualities that have been written into the very being of Salvatore Ferragamo—its eponymous founder was a shoemaker to the stars, after all. So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that these traits are the subjects of focus for the latest Holiday collection.
Inspired by the world of evening wear, the pieces from the Holiday collection are prime examples of how the ongoing reinvention of Salvatore Ferragamo casts one eye on its storied past, with the other trained on the future. The accessories department is where the touches of Paul Andrew, its latest Creative Director, have flourished. For this collection, the silhouettes of Salvatore Ferragamo’s signature pumps and mules have been streamlined, with special treatments such as sequins bringing them to fruition.
Andrew’s ability to inject modern twists to iconic styles is also reflected in the latest iterations of the Vara pump, first designed in 1979 by Ferragamo’s daughter, Fiamma. Rendered on sandals, the Vara’s recognisable bow detail instantly adds flair to a casual staple. The evening allure of the bow has been extended to the bags, too: A party-ready version lets you go hands free while you dance the night away.
