Although I own hundreds of bags, I find myself hunting through my collection to find a bag that I love and will end up carrying for weeks at a time. Sometimes I change out my bags often, but when I find a great bag, I tend to stick with it. A few weeks ago, I started carrying my Salvatore Ferragamo Small Tote in Raffia and Python and since I first picked it up, I haven’t put it down.
Ferragamo Handbags and Purses
In the next few months you will be seeing a lot more shoe love from our team; we continue to share our footwear obsessions at TalkShoes, because what handbag lover doesn’t love shoes as well? (And vice versa, of course.) One of my favorite shoe brands is Salvatore Ferragamo – the brand’s shoes are legitimately comfortable, which can be a tough feat to accomplish when it comes to women’s shoes.
I no longer watch Project Runway, but I’ll be forever indebted to the show (and to Tim Gunn) for giving us the beautiful phrase “a lot of look.” Gunn’s a tactful, polite man, so he generally only deployed that saying in a negative way, but I think it’s applicable beyond that – “a lot of look,” in my mind, can be either good or bad, depending on the skill of the designer.
The vast majority of the bags that we feature during our weekly man bag sojourns are, to put it bluntly, a bit drap. Most men like it that way; colors, especially brights, are generally reserved to ladies and the more flamboyant gays. I’m not sure who decided that wearing color was un-masculine, but I’d like to disagree. Men look great in color at the same rate women do, and judging by the Salvatore Ferragamo Revival Duffel Bag, some Italian gents agree with me.
Tomorrow kicks off New York Fashion Week, and we are excited and a wee bit stressed to get started. However, I feel so lucky to be part of the events, and I look forward to sharing the things that I see with you all. One of the best ways to do that is via social media, and of course we are on every platform and plan to give you a behind-the-scenes look of how we experience fashion week.
Colorblocking may feel like its reached its peak as a trend, but don’t be fooled, it’s not going anywhere. I’ve been a longtime fan of the Salvatore Ferragamo Sofia Satchel, and this season the brand spiced up the classic by adding vibrant colors to different panels. I adore the color combination Ferragamo chose, with the front showing a creamy rouge hue and orange and the sides featuring a creamy neutral hue.
While some stores are offering discounts today for Cyber Monday, others are revamping their look and releasing new products online. Our friends at Salvatore Ferragamo took the kickoff of holiday shopping season to completely redesign their e-commerce site, which is much more user friendly and sleek.
Not only is the site completely made over, but it also features the brand new hobo style designed by Massimiliano Giornetti from the Resort 2013 collection.
Remember back when colorblocking sounded new and interesting? It’s been a little while, but the trend is still going strong through Fall 2012 and well into Resort 2013. When done carefully, and often with the help of a little added texture, the look can still feel fresh and modern, but it’s not the sure-win gimmick that it was a year ago.
Some designers just do a really good job, and I consider Ferragamo to be part of that group. The brand is always creating pieces for the everyday elegant woman, and I constantly think of Salvatore Ferragamo when it comes to investment pieces. I own a few of their handbags, but I am always looking to add a new piece, and what better than this stunning version of the iconic Sofia in Astrakan.
I’m fairly certain that by now, you’ve probably noticed that we don’t plan to cover or attend Fashion’s Night Out. In fact, whenever I see the acronym FNO, all I can think about is spending a fashionable night in. Don’t be mistaken, there are awesome collaborations and celebs galore for all the different events, but with a crazy work week to follow, the idea of being stuck in massive crowds of people is simply not my thing.
