London’s Dover Street Market has firmly established itself as the epicentre of cool in the capitals’ West End. So no wonder Salvatore Ferragamo, hot on the couture heels of Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent, have decided to launch an exclusive collection at the fashion market, arriving on 19 July.
The collection, Ferragamo Creations, is inspired by the Italian fashion house’s 80-year old archive – Salvatore himself was originally a shoe designer to Hollywood glitterati such as Ava Gardner in the 1920s before returning to Italy to launch his company. It’s no wonder then that the collection includes their “F” wedges (Ferragamo is credited with inventing the wedge) and designs re-worked from those originally created for his Hollywood clients.
This is a real opportunity to get collectables from a style visionary into your wardrobe, but practically ‘objets d’art’ you’ll more than likely want to hang them up as much as wear them.
