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.

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.
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 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.
The Boston Bag shape is a highly used and coveted shape year after year. Gucci has made the term Boston Bag famous, but it is not just Gucci that designs a bag of this shape. And this Spring designers are implementing this easy day bag shape in various ways.
We simply do not talk about Salvatore Ferragamo enough on PurseBlog. But Ferragamo bags deserve more praise.
The more I see of the Fall/Winter 2010 shows, particularly the ones from Milan, the more I become certain that the fashion industry glitterati have clandestine meetings after the season has been presented to decide what the trends for the next season will be, just so everyone else is on the same page. That, or it’s secretly just one supergenius (or supercomputer?) behind every major collection, and that’s why everything from Gucci to Fendi to Ferragamo this season has been so cohesive – not just within each collection, but across much of what has been shown at Fashion Week as a whole.
I need more Salvatore Ferragamo bags in my life. This is a brand that flies under the radar but produces bags that are drool-worthy time after time. This time we are mentioning a classic bag from Ferragamo that was seen on Jessica Simpson back in 2005 in bright green. An aside, but is it not hilarious to read a post from 2005 that is talking about Newlyweds?
While Salvatore Ferragamo is known for some exquisite handbags, I love when I find something a little different than what I am normally expecting. This bag fits into that category.
I am always on the look out for hot handbags perfect for day time use. When I am at the grocery store or out running any kind of errand, I tend to see way too many ugly handbags.
Exotic bags are always a hot topic of discussion, both around here and on our Forum. Some people love them, some people hate them, and others sit in the middle, fretting about their ethical implications without being able to completely convince themselves to dislike the bags. I was a member of the last group for a long time, but I finally came to a decision about it a while back: as long as the bag uses the skin to its fullest effect, I have no quarrel with it.
You know who we don’t hear about often enough? Salvatore Ferragamo. The reason why has nothing to do with a lack of appreciation or love of Ferragamo bags. We have seen bags that have caught our attention and have yet to loose it (remember the Carlotta Alligator Tote).
One of the signature attributes for Ferragamo bags is the circular hardware.
