Contrasting and nonchalant. Femme sensibility and homme rigor. Splendid exotics and symmetrical patterns. A whole lot of black and white by Ferragamo, presented in B/W on PurseBlog. Enjoy: Click to view the full gallery
We’ve seen tons of color during the Fall 2011 shows that at times it has been hard for me to remember that these collections are intended for cold weather instead of warm. And I’m not complaining; the return of color is absolutely my favorite trend of 2011 as a whole and I couldn’t be happier to wear pink and orange instead of camel. But for those of you who, like me, still appreciate a good bit of black and grey in our closets, Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2011 has some handbags that are more than worth a look.
Ferragamo kept with the company’s recent use of vintage-reminiscent shapes and leather to make a collection full of businesslike shoulder bags and sparkly evening bags that will surely be a hit on the red carpet. My favorite pieces were those that used pattern, like the sharp-edged herringbone day clutch, but if you prefer your bags neutral and textured, beautiful exotics and leather treatments also abounded in glossy black.

We don’t give you all enough Salvatore Ferragamo here. And that needs to change. Especially when they have simple, exotic, and gorgeous designs such as this one. Ferragamo is one of those brands you can always turn to for a quality luxury products (similar to Bottega Veneta). The brand is known for its timeless appeal. And this clutch screams out perfection.

With hundreds of events happening for Fashion Night Out this year, we decided against saturating our website with every single event. Actually, we didn’t even cover one. But that changes now and it is because I absolutely positively love the bag that is being launched. Ferragamo does FNO properly by giving us a fantastic bag to remember their event by.
To celebrate new Creative Director, Massimiliano Giornetti’s first womenswear collection, Salvatore Ferragamo is launching the W Bag. The W bag is named for the House’s matriarch, Mrs. Wanda Ferragamo, and was originally designed in the seventies by her daughter Fiamma. (more…)

Ferragamo is a brand we turn to for premium quality and luxury. For our trip to the Bahamas, Salvatore Ferragamo sent us this Resort bag to photograph. The white leather handbag featured brown trim along with tortoise shell closures. The bag itself has thick pebbled leather and a doctor bag top closure. The color combination was perfect against the crystal blue Carribean waters and lush greenery.
Sex and the City 2 is so over now but I have to reference it when talking about this bag, because Samantha carried it in the movie. It was only seen for a glimpse of a second, but it was eye-catching and automatically made me feel happy. That is what yellow can do for you. And that is what a bag as gorgeous and stylish as the Salvatore Ferragamo Python Fiammetta Bag does to you too. It lures you in and has a way to make you want it.
In fact, we already covered this bag back in March. This time we also have the clutch version for you to drool over as well. Price for the larger bag was $4,579 in March. Request further info through Ferragamo. (more…)
Every time we talk about Salvatore Ferragamo we also talk about how much we love the brand. And with that we talk about the quality and elegance of their products. We may not cover Ferragamo as much as other designers on PurseBlog, but that does not reflect on lack of beauty, style, or craftsmanship.
Joining the growing list of designers to release iPad cases, Salvatore Ferragamo announces they too will offer a collection of iPad cases ranging in price from $290 to $390. To be honest, as much as I loved the Louis Vuitton iPad Case and Gucci iPad Case, the Ferragamo iPad Cases might be my favorite. (more…)
When we covered this tote in yellow python back in March, what tripped up most people was the price – $4500 is a lot for a bag, whether or not it’s exotic. Since then, I’ve been on the lookout for a regular leather version, and lo and behold, the Salvatore Ferragamo Plume Patchwork Bag finally came along to grant my wish.
Even in a decidedly more pedestrian material, the design of this bag holds up to scrutiny. It’s a little bit left-of-center when you compare it to your average tote with an extra shoulder strap, and I couldn’t be more pleased. (more…)
Why so serious Salvatore Ferragamo?
I suppose my thinking of this bag as being too structured and too serious goes hand in hand with the fact that my job does not call for me to dress up in a skirt and jacket or anything formal. EVER. I think if someday I needed to put on a pant suit I would quit. Ok that is a lie, because I sort of adore pant suits. But there is something too proper, too structured, and too refined about the Salvatore Ferragamo Gancini Icona Vitello Tote for my taste.
Don’t get me wrong, the bag is gorgeous. It is just not for me. I love my laid back lifestyle, and when I say laid back, I mean laid back. The popularity of boyfriend jeans made my life better, and slouchy shoulder bags along with long strapped cross-body bags put a smile on my face. The most structured bags in my collection, other than clutches, are my Hermes Birkins. There is just not much need in my life for such a refined bag, which does not speak against the quality or beauty. (more…)
Although versions of that famous phrase appear in the works of both Homer and Shakespeare, I think that it is most usefully and accurately employed to describe my salivating, almost quivering reaction upon seeing the Salvatore Ferragamo Python Soft Sofia Shoulder Bag. To put it in more vernacular terms: holy crap, y’all. If a bag can be sexy, this bag is sexy. I want to settle down and buy a house with it – too bad its price would be a good start to a downpayment.

I don’t know about the rest of you guys, but I’m really, really digging the Ferragamo Spring/Summer 2010 offerings so far. The brand has never been at the top of my list in the past, but the bags from their line that I’ve seen lately have just been so summery that it’s hard to ignore what they’ve got cookin’ in their Italian factories.
Among my favorite of the brand’s new looks is the Salvatore Ferragamo Python Fiammetta Shoulder Bag. If ever there was a color that’s more warm-weather friendly than yellow, I can’t think of what it is, and the python texture and wooden handle give the bag just a hint of safari flavor that plays so well when temperatures rise.
