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.

I’m a little undecided about this particular shade of yellow and how well it may or may not go with the wood handles, but that’s a somewhat limited critique for a bag that does a lot of things right. Indeed, the handles are one of my favorite things about the design – it may come with a long leather shoulder strap, but the inverted Ferragamo symbol, rendered in wood, is just too pretty not to use as the primary means of conveyance.

As far as bright yellow python goes, what is there to say about it that’s not obvious? We already know that it’s beautiful and luxurious. For those out there that might doubt the utility of a bag this color, I have a bright yellow Botkier bag that I use all the time – the shade is surprisingly versatile, and it always makes people want to see my bag up closer. When you add python and a wood handle to the mix, you’ve got a stunner that will have heads turning for sure. Buy through Luisa Via Roma for $4579.

    A little too expensive for me, but I do love the shape and color of the bag. I would probably use it as a clutch though; the shoulder strap makes it look kind of weird to me. Its cute and would be a great asset to those summer outfits. (fb)

  • Jenna

    I agree with Rosanna, more of a clutch to me. The color is stunning (fb).

  • April C.

    Love love LOVE the yellow python! (fb)

  • Ann

    LOve it but I wouldn’t be able to spend that kind of money on a bag. (fb)

  • BLynnT

    Price is definitely high, but I love the yellow and the wooden handles. I agree with Rosanna that I would probably skip the shoulder strap more often than not to use the handles. (fb)

  • Tanya

    This bag is absolutely beautiful, I agree with everyone else the price is a bit high but fab none the less:) (FB)

  • Gelynn

    The color is gorgeous!!! (fb)

  • ShoeQueen1961

    Brilliant color!

  • llson

    Gorgeous!! I’ve been admiring the white leather version.

  • Idealist

    I totally agree Amanda! Some people really sleep on Ferragamo because what they offer in department stores are less than stellar. HOWEVER, if you go into their specialty boutique, they have some of the most amazing pieces including their handbags! I’m a fan of this 1 among others. The color is versatile and believe it or not the clutch itself can be used as an everyday bag. I do it all the time…

  • Stacy

    This bag is stunning!! I have admired Ferragamo for some time, I just couldn’t afford the pieces that I fell in love with. They have always been somewhat creative when it comes to the placement of the signature gancio design. Just a thought…this is going to sound bizarre and I may take heat for it, but again, it is just my humble opinion…I do like the correlation between the python and the wood. I think they are perfect together, after all – pythons do live in trees and maybe that’s what they were trying to convey with this bag…reptile and nature. (AND YES, I know the bag is BRIGHT Yellow – not a color that would be found in nature and it’s dead). Bottom line is that I personally think they do go well together.

  • Tamee

    Now this is a gorgeous bag! The color is so cheery, and the wooden handles set it off really well! Not to busy – just clean lines! FABULOUS! (fb)

  • Sofia Nolan

    it`s a pretty handbag but geeeeeeeeeeeeeez!!! is that a real price?!

  • CC

    Wow, its stunning, the colours are gorgeous but that price is insane! (fb)

  • justa9url

    The colour is brilliant, perfect for summer! (fb)

  • Debbie

    Before reading the description in the blog, I was thinking how could that possibly be a shoulder bag. My arm isn’t going to fit through that hole! LOL.

    Yellow is not my color but I like the design. (fb).

  • Jessica

    First I didn’t understand how that was a shoulder bag lol but then i clicked on the link and saw there was another strap!

    Anyway, OMG I LOVE THAT BAGGG!! It’s that POP of color! But wow it’s so cute! Way too much for me but if I had the money I would get it… (FB)

  • LaToya

    It is a beautiful bag. Love the color but its not worth $4000 plus dollars.

  • Jocelyn

    It’s not my style of bag (fb).

  • Jess

    I *love* this bag!! (fb)

  • Gillian

    I used to dislike the color yellow, as a pale blonde it always made me looked washed out! but after seeing so many gorgeous sun colored bags (especially this one) I am loving the color yellow again!

  • Gillian

    I was too distracted by the gorgeous purse, and forgot! (fb) :)

  • Triniti

    This bag makes me want a sugar daddy…and I don’t mean the candy people

  • Triniti

    oops meant to write (fb) too

  • Lydia

    Everything about this bag is perfect. Perfect colour, perfect hardware, perfect shape, perfect texture. This would be an amazing go-to Spring/Summer bag. (fb)

  • Kathy

    Hand me that bag! The handle is unique and the color will work nicely with a gold pendant on dark blue denim. I could also work this in with a yellow cardigan sweater and heels. Snakeskin is always In….(fb)

  • bagalove

  • csm

    Love the color and the python but way overpriced.

  • Melissa

    gorgeous and bright for summer!! (fb)

  • Jane

    I really like this bag, but I agree I can’t decide whether its the shade of yellow that doesn’t go well with the wood handles or the stain of the wood handles. However, I am not ready to write the bag off just because of that because it might be the photoshop colors? I really love the shape and the circle handles. (fb)

  • Handbag Lover

    I love this bag, HOT!

  • Theresa W

    Love the python, but the colour and price are a bit too bold for me… ;) (fb)

  • Roxanna

    Not a fun of the python but the bag is so fun! (fb)

  • VERON

    What a nice bag and the colour perfect for summer, love it (fb)

  • Merve

    I love the bag and the colour is so lovely but i cant justify paying 5k for what is essentially a bright yellow seasonal bag

  • Amy

    Yellow is my new favorite color, and this one is beautiful! (fb)

  • covertanjou

    Beautiful color, but 5k?? Too expensive.

  • KAKA

    A real Coach bag is expensive which is the reason why there are fake ones because they almost look like the real ones and they are affordable. Here are some few ways I’ve learned from others on how to know if it is a fake one :
    1. A looks like B
    2. the sewing is really bad
    3. when you hold the bag it’s rough
    4. the cloth/material is cheap
    5. the zippers/buttons,etc don’t have a C or coach on it
    The best way to have a real one is buy it from Coach website or stores but expect that they are expensive. But I found this Coach Shoulder bag from this website who said that their items are original because they got it from factory direct. coach outlet FROM http://www.mybestfashion.com

    never been a fan of ferragamo, but this shoulder bag im diggin it, specially the color. maybe the color makes the bag… (fb)

  • teresa smith

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this purse. Will this fit over the shoulders of those of us who are on the larger side????? (fb)

  • mochababe73

    I have never really given Ferragamo handbags a second look when I see them on display at the store in my city. This one would definitely make me look twice. I’m just not sure about the outer edges of the top of the bag. They look as though they may droop when you hold it. (fb)

  • Shirley Ma

    So cute but so overpriced :(
