STEP BACK IN TIME WITH FERRAGAMO
Ferragamo goes back in time recreating some of its most iconic shoes & handbags and is bringing them to selected boutiques around the world.
The collection known as Ferragamo's Creations was founded in 2006 for a concept store near the Ferragamo Museum in Florence, Italy.
Pieces from Ferragamo's Creations have been reproduced in a limited edition range & are sold year-round in select boutiques, with the next temporary installation arriving in Orange County USA’s South Coast Plaza, marking its fourth destination.
Shoes in the collection include $2,500USD rainbow wedges originally made for Judy Garland (pictured) & $3,900USD platforms with gold mirrors inspired by Carmen Miranda.
The archives stretch from Ferragamo's work in the 1920s until he died in 1960, with the Ferragamo's Creations handbags designed by his daughter Fiamma in the '80s.
No more than 500 of each piece is made in this new edition & each is numbered, with buyers receive an authenticity certificate.
The collection will continue to be on display & for sale through May 5 in the USA.
