It has been 100 years since Salvatore Ferragamo landed in Los Angeles to make shoes for Hollywood actresses. To commemorate the successful century of the brand’s relationship with Hollywood, a capsule collection of desirable shoes has been launched to woo festive shoppers.
The Edgardo Osorio for Salvatore Ferragamo capsule collection sees the acclaimed young shoe designer playfully channel the founder’s iconic designs from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s, and reinterpret them for the contemporary woman.
All set to hit the shelves before December, the collection is inspired by Salvatore Ferragamo’s iconic models. It comprises of a dozen styles that feature a combination of different materials, including patent leather, suede, napa and cork, and embellished with a range of decorations, such as bows, lace, wings, stones and feathers.
Salvatore Ferragamo creative director Massimiliano Giornetti stated, “Edgardo’s South American culture and his sophisticated creative aesthetic embody Ferragamo’s lifestyle. The collection perfectly reinterprets the real spirit of Salvatore: ironic, playful, attentive to details, creative with a touch of originality, all combined with comfort and luxury.”
While Osorio mentioned, “For me it’s an honor to reinterpret the extraordinary style of Salvatore Ferragamo for a new generation of women. This collaboration is very important for me because it marks the first 10 years of my career, which started in Ferragamo at 19: my first job in the world of luxury footwear.”
