Salvatore Ferragamo: Renegade shoe designs of the 20th century

Working with many iconic 1920’s Hollywood actresses, Salvatore Ferragamo pioneered the wedge and cage heeled shoe to many a silver screen star including Judy Garland and Greta Garbo. Using innovative materials and unusual designs, he crafted an array of revolutionary cutting-edge shoes that garnered him international success and his eponymous line eventually evolved into a luxury good empire comprising silk shift dresses, pale pink wool cardigans and a range of beautiful patent leather tote and shoulder bags.

Salvatore Ferragamo: Revamping his traditional iconic look

Having undergone several reincarnations and resurfacing under the creative helm of Massimiliano Giornetti, the Italian fashion house has amassed a more contemporary following than in previous years. Straight-legged wool-blend trousers, light-coloured leather loafers, Nagoya Chelsea boots and patent leather evening bags are just a few of Ferragamo’s latest pieces, designed with the younger generation in mind. On the other hand, his nude round toe flats and embossed leather black heels adhere to his original, traditional aesthetic.
