Ferragamo My Way!

Whenever I see Ferragamo, I remember my Mother. She loves the brand and always boasts of it's wearability and comfort in shoes.

I suppose when I am more mature in age, I would also be a Ferragamo collector. It exudes class that without even trying. In this post are some of Salvatore Ferragamo pieces which I matched with Jul B. Dizon Jewellery.

Please click on photos to enlarge view. Enjoy!

The bags consists of simple and sophisticated forms. Immediately recognizable iconic elements. Such is the aesthetic of whispered luxury.

Salvatore Ferragamo bags speak in a coded language of “gancio” and “vara” motifs. The iconic lines of Salvatore Ferragamo are clothed in soft fur: pony, lamb, mink and lapin. Extraordinary crafting gives bags a surprising 3D look. Lapin inserts look like petals. New bags in exquisite milk, in various shades from white through honey to brown.

This is the season for patchwork, in the finest Ferragamo tradition. Combinations of skins, textures and colors. Metallized leathers, ultra-soft nappas, crocodile and suede in a display of refined craftsmanship. Chic and timeless bags in neutral tones: greys, blacks and browns ignited by red, blue and amethyst. Exotic skins: a practical and contemporary line of fashion items in snakeskin creating graphic effects (rendered even more special by hand finishing on the central “gancio” and handles).

A new collection of bags characterized by a new, stylized metal “vara” motif. Chic and feminine, the new chain mail bags. Signatures in diagonal across nylon shopping-bags define the style of the new day totes – young and appealing.

The grosgrain “vara” decoration (pure Ferragamo) adds a touch of exquisite femininity, in the season’s new colors.

The shoes are clean and sophisticated elegance that rediscovers a taste for pure lines. A new collection of pumps with simple yet ultra-feminine design. The ones that made the Marilyn Monroe style so famous.
An inseparable pair: Salvatore Ferragamo and women’s shoes. A celebration of the “plain pump”, with or without platform, featuring micro-perforations borrowed from the men’s repertory and wooden heels (11 cm of sensuality).

The collection has drawn cleverly on archive material. The “gancio” device merges with the grosgrain in a line of footwear with strong personality. The undisputed centerpiece is an exquisite patchwork model that combines the creative agendas of both bags and shoes, thus giving the accessories collection a precise, univocal identity.

Leather and nabuk inlays joined together with exquisite hand stitching. Exclusive creations: patent leather pumps with embroidered hexagons. The hexagon, in fact, is the new shape this season, decorating the new half-heel (3 and 5 cm) ballerinas. The Audrey continues its success, now in the collection’s new colors – amethyst, amber and amaranth – and in suede or metallized leather.
A revived animalier look, spots all-over prints, with blotches of fading colour in the background and impressive effects of light and depth.

The silk collection has a force of a fantastic, imaginary nature in the feline eyes looking out from the Salvatore Ferragamo foulards. Ferocious beasts reclining on beds of tropical flowers and fronds. These motifs are from the classic Salvatore Ferragamo collection: patterns that are instantly recognizable in their hallmark luxury and femininity.

A refined choreography of butterflies with speckled wings open in flight, against soft and delicately colored grounds. The elegant palette of the season in fact: baked browns, violet, aubergine, warm nuances of grey. Touches of lurex. An absolute elegance of form and color, in scarves stoles and foulards. In the new collection format: a 110 x 110 cm maxi-carré of silk.

These are from the Women’s Accessories Collection Fall Winter 2010-2011.

In the Philippines, Salvatore Ferragamo is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists Inc. (SSI) and is located at Power Plant Mall, Greenbelt 4, Rustan’s Tower, Rustan’s Makati, Alabang Town Centre and Rustan’s Ayala Cebu.
