Seriously loving the Women's Fall Winter 2013 Collection of Salvatore Ferragamo.
A few years ago, I felt that this brand is really for my Mom's age bracket. But after seeing the pieces up close, I feel that their collection is something I would love to have in my closet. From scarves to the shoes and bags, I fell in love.
Style expressed through sophisticated linearity. Virtuosities of craftsmanship interpret the research of a perfect line. A graphic taste is represented by the elegance of sleek, ultra-feminine and pointy shapes, matched with thin heels and essential knots replacing the classic clasps with extraordinary balance. Modern models offer innovative combinations of boots, sandals and pumps, mixing laser-patterned leather with a 3D feel, metallic effects, patent leather and the plasticity of PVC. Shoes stand out as solid color blocks and present a sole, heel and lining entirely matching with the upper. The shoe collection is lit up by metallic details, eyelets, applied elements on bootlegs or small bars between the toes that recall the bag collection featuring the Palladium finish.
These perfect hybrids between ankle shoes, straps and pumps unveil sensual proportions of naked skin outlining the leg through mignon closures, while constructed sandals wrap the ankle with a game of leather strips; an embellishment that becomes an essential element of the structure. New pumps combine the mirrored effect of metallic leather with the clear transparency of PVC.
The selection of foulards offers creative and artistic news, suggested with flower and feline prints, classic motifs constituting the DNA of Salvatore Ferragamo. The powerful color palette paints intense hues of Barolo red, black, red, ivory and hints of teal. Absolutely new is the Fun collection. Pictorial appeal for a refined tale of creativity characterized by a modern and conceptual stylistic approach that still keeps alive iconic elements such as the patchwork of the archive designs.
Luxury in an exclusive blend of architectural lines and premium quality hides, molded by exquisite craftsmanship. A refined simplicity of shapes with the consistency of rich and full-bodied materials, conceived to keep the original silhouette of the bags, embarks on a journey through the bright textures of semi-polished calfskin, the more precious shaved pony and glossy crocodile.
The color palette explores a lunar environment with the dark tones of blue -Oxford and Steel- and featuring Pearl and Slate grey and experiencing an elegant silver twist with the New Helmut and platinum. Black and white offer impeccable neutrality.

Precise proportions define the new soft hobo handbags enhanced by leather tassels and new accessories such as Palladium finished keys and lock. Small flat accurately constructed satchels, display adjustable shoulder straps secured by a newly designed clasp, clearly alluding to the Gancio. Semi-rigid geometric shaped tote bags contain the handle in the body of the bag, highlighting it with a thin metallic coating. The new collection features split and crust leather linings that match the outside tones; a defined taste aimed at harmonizing color blocks. Refined top handle mini bags are closed with a lock, and present the zipper iconic detailing and a completely laminated handle suggesting a firmer and more square allure while new flap bags fold in a ton sur ton effect.
