From the US to Florence, Italy: the American years and the return back to roots of Salvatore Ferragamo
90 years have passed since the Italian designer, Salvatore Ferragamo, came back from the US to Italy and this year we want to celebrate the incredible creative talent of the man behind a fashion empire in the anniversary of his return.
His American years made him famous worldwide, shaping his aesthetic, connecting him to Hollywood and the star system: he designed shoes for every celebrity during the 20’s, the Golden Age of Hollywood, his name bacame soon synonymous with quality and refinery. But he never really went away from Italy, where his roots are and what he took to the New World was his passion for his work and his Italian touch, very esteemed by the Americans.
While the Museo Ferragamo in Florence wanted to dedicated an exposition to his genius and his creations, we want to propose again the Womenswear FW17 collection designed by Fulvio Rigoni and the Menswear SS18 collection by Guillaume Meilland for Ferragamo.
