ICONIC FASHION | Delfina Remi
From Salvatore Ferragamo’s priceless archive comes a re-edition of a pattern reproducing famous women’s shoes: Iconic Shoes.
Featuring a large selection of historic shoes reproduced in scale, the pattern includes some of the brand’s most memorable models (sandals, decolleté, ballet flats, ankle boots) as well as the famous Tirassegno pump, inspired by the art of Kenneth Noland and dedicated to Marilyn Monroe by Salvatore Ferragamo. From this mix-match of color and pictorial inspiration linked to Andy Warhol’s creativity, an exclusive design came to life that went on to compose a series of clothing items and accessories, presented at the Salvatore Ferragamo Spring Summer 1991 fashion show.
Today the re-edition of that “capsule” is making an appearance in the flagship stores in Milan and Florence, and also in the concept store 10 Corso Como in Milan and New York, in conjunction with an exhibition dedicated to Andy Warhol at the Complesso del Vittoriano in Rome. It is a tribute to Pop Art’s leading figure who revolutionized that same idea of art, even bringing the status of shoes from everyday objects to works of art through some of his collections.
The current pattern is featured on a tight-fitting jumpsuit with a low neckline, lycra leggings and top accompanied by a classic Ferragamo top handle bag with Gancini closure, in silk, and ballet flats in the same material. A classic 90×90 silk twill foulard finishes out the selection.
