Salvatore Ferragamo X The Webster Resort 2019 Capsule
NEW YORK (April 2019) - Paul Andrew, Ferragamo’s creative director, was inspired to create the wedges after seeing an archival photo of Loretta Young wearing a similar pair in 1938. That photo, and that era, informed several aspects of his spring collection: the “languid, oversize silhouettes,” and the palm prints he found in the archive and reimagined. Andrew says he also explored some of the house founder’s ’40s hits that were born out of necessity. Due to wartime rationing, leather and metal were hard to come by, so Ferragamo began “using materials that he was finding locally, like raffia, lace, and straw,” plus cork for wedges and remnants of leather that could be woven to create bags and shoes.
That same inventive spirit in injected into the seven-piece capsule for The Webster. There’s an open-weave leather version of the Ferragamo Studio in two sizes, the first handbag style Andrew created when he joined the house, together with two iconic wicker styles – all exclusive to The Webster. The collection all includes 4 styles of shoes. Prices range from $730 - $3100.
