In November, Salvatore Ferragamo announced the launch of a capsule shoe collection with acclaimed shoe designer Edgardo Osorio of Aquazzura to celebrate Ferragamo’s 100 years in Hollywood. The collection is filled with bold colors, polka dots and clean lines, with a whimsical and artistic vibe.
Ferragamo makes beautiful bags that we cover often, but if you are a shoe lover as well, you might already know that Ferragamo makes great, comfortable shoes. If you ask anyone in the know to recommend a luxury shoe that is won’t kill your feet, you will inevitably hear Ferragamo; that goes for the men’s shoes as well.
Salvatore Ferragamo is an Italian company, but what you might not realize is that the brand’s founder and namesake got his start in Southern California. Ferragamo set up shop in Santa Barbara in 1914, and to celebrate both the brand’s 99-year presence in California and its sponsorship of the first annual Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Gala, the brand is releasing The Annenberg Collection of handbags, shoes and jewels.
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.
