Earlier this week, Massimiliano Giornetti presented the Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2013 collection at The Louvre in Paris, France. This is the first fashion show in history to be held in the museum’s famed halls, and it was quite the star-studded event befitting such a beautiful locale. As much as I love the celebrity angle, the Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2013 collection was about much more than who was there.

There’s just something so classy about Salvatore Ferragamo Pre-Spring 2013, and about Ferragamo in general. These bags take on some of the industry’s biggest trends – colorblocking, texture-mixing, brights, mint green – in a way that feels fresh and light, even when most bags with such elements are starting to feel a bit heavy-handed and obvious. That’s no small feat, which is why we thought we’d let you know that the collection can be pre-ordered through June 13 on Moda Operandi.
The weather is getting much nicer and I am excited to wander the city and enjoy time outdoors. I’ve learned to edit the things I carry in my handbag so that I can choose a smaller bag that won’t weigh me down for long walks. I fell in love with a version of this Gancini bag when I found it for the best traditional wedding day bags.
Yesterday I had the pleasure to tour the newly renovated Salvatore Ferragamo flagship store on Fifth Avenue prior to its official unveiling earlier today. Crafty workers were still busy putting finishing touches on the new decor to have it perfectly presentable for the next morning, but all chaotic last minute touches aside, it was easy to see that the redesign was worthy of a true Fifth Ave flagship.
We’ve had a mild winter in NYC, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t wish for warm weather to arrive. The forecast for the next two days is very reminiscent of the change of seasons, and that has me in a daydreaming, resort-wear mood. Salvatore Ferragamo performed spring cleaning on their website and cleared out a space specifically to showcase their Spring/Summer 2012 collection.
At the risk of employing a cliche, I think black might be the new black. The inky color beloved by fashion people and regular folks alike (especially in New York) has been oddly omnipresent in Fall 2012 collections; because it doesn’t photograph well and more vivid colors are preferred for magazine editorials, black often finds itself relegated to a designer’s non-runway line.

“You can’t wear white after Labor Day or before Easter!”
Is there actually anyone out there who believes that anymore? I mean, besides little old ladies. Even I, as a daughter of the South and a woman introduced to pearls, slips and “proper dressing” at a young age, think this rule is beyond tired.

For Fall 2011, Salvatore Ferragamo gave us handbag after handbag in black, white or grey, and the collection served as a stark contrast the use of color that permeated most of the other collections for the season. For Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2012, though, there isn’t a trop of black or grey to be found. You might as well entitle this collection Ferragamo and the Amazing Technicolor Handbags.
I never shared my experience of the Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2012 show with you. Shame on me because it was drop dead gorgeous, the kind of gorgeous that made me pinch myself to see if what I was experiencing was a dream. Held at the James B. Duke Mansion, this was the first time Ferragamo has shown in NYC and many celebrities and fashion insiders were in attendance.
Hats off to Amanda for holding down the PB fort as Vlad and I partake in a “vacation.” So far on this particular trip, we rarely check our email and keep swatting one another’s hands away when we see the other attempting to slyly work via our iPhones. But today, after a long day in the sun, we both caved and decided it was time to check in with you all.
