Salvatore Ferragamo Designer Profile

The Evolution of Salvatore Ferragamo

Salvatore Ferragamo is one of the most prestigious luxury footwear designers in the world. After many years of developing breathtaking shoe designs, Ferragamo decided to open up a Hollywood shop in hopes of gaining recognition from celebrities. His attempt was successful and Salvatore Ferragamo quickly became the official shoemaker of the stars. After his death in 1960, it was important to Ferragamo and consumers that the label and name live on in honor of the designer himself. Today, the label is doing better than ever and continues to unveil incredible new styles with every line released.

Originally known for creating impeccable shoe designs, the Ferragamo label has grown to include complete collections of men’s and women’s ready-to-wear apparel as well as full lines of handbags and accessories. Just like Ferragamo’s original shoe designs, his stunning collections of apparel, handbags and accessories were an instant hit with consumers and have become some of the most popular collections in the world.

Salvatore Ferragamo’s Signature Style

Unlike some of the glam-rock designers like Roberto Cavalli, Salvatore Ferragamo is determined to create highly sophisticated, classy designs for men and women. His collection targets businessmen and women who are looking for savvy designs that show off their intelligence as well as their beauty.

The women’s collection includes a number of solid color blazers as well as horizontally striped, preppy shirts, skirts and dress pants. The menswear collection follows the same preppy style as that of the women’s, featuring a number of collared tees, patterned dress shirts, khakis and dress pants. Salvatore Ferragamo defines sophistication and is dedicated to designing glamorous, elegant pieces for men and women of all ages.
