Salvatore Ferragamo Sophia Astrakan

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.

Creative Director Massimiliano Giornetti reimagined the Salvatore Ferragamo Sofia Satchel for the Fall 2012 runway collection by finishing it in a distinctive Astrakan fur, which has a tightly textured appearance. (Not to mention that it’s a huge trend for the season.)


I have a version of this bag in white leather, and whenever I carry it I receive tons of compliments. The design is sleek and timeless, and I imagine I’ll be using this bag for years to come. I wish I could explain to you how beautiful the astrakhan fur on this bag will be, but you probably need to head to the Salvatore Fifth Avenue Flagship to see and feel this bag in person. The fur will give immediate dimensionality to the bag but because it is black, it will not be distracting. I feel like this bag is going to haunt me. Price is $3,600 via Ferragamo online. And while you are at it, you should just out the Ferragamo Trunkshow online, where you can create outfits that will haunt your dreams for weeks to come.
