Salvatore Ferragamo Press Preview

Last week I took a close look at the Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2011 collection at a Press Preview which was held in London.

After seeing the collection on the runway during Milan Fashion Week, I was eager to see the accessories up close.

What I hadn’t spotted during the presentation is that the heels have a hounds-tooth sole which I thought was really clever way to brand the shoe collection.

An interesting fact I learned from this press preview is that Salvatore Ferragamo created his now trademark heels for Marilyn Monroe in the 50s. She owned around 40 pairs. It was these heels which help perfect her sexy wiggle.

Celebrities are huge fans of Ferragamo, especially the bags and shoes.

Angelina Jolie seems to wear Ferragamo shoes exclusively. Other fans include Freida Pinto and Eva Longoria.

The Ferragamo minaudière’s are equally popular. I can see the two in the picture below being carried on the red carpet during Cannes Film Festival next month.

The most interesting piece from this preview was the leather shoulder bag which had ostrich, snake-skin, python and crocodile pockets with gold clasps.

Other highlights include the animal print pieces and the fine jewelery.
