About Salvatore Ferragamo

This Florentine and Italian shoe designer worked with many Hollywood stars from 1919 to 1927, creating custom-made shoes and offering repair, before he returned to Italy to found his namesake company, designing and producing innovative hand-made footwear. Calling the man's designs “inventive” is no exaggeration; wedge heels, made from layered cork, debuted in 1938, the first of their type. Curiously his designing tool bag became the first creation from the Salvatore Ferragamo handbag line in 1949, which already featured several pockets, two different leathers, and plenty of space, although the official product line wasn't brought to the public until 1965. In 1955, scarves appeared in fine silk, inspired by ancient Italian symbols, which was not the first time the designer had turned to anthropology for creative ideas.

This sense of inspired design continued through the family after Salvatore passed away in 1960, and at the same time as the handbag line, a Salvatore Ferragamo apparel collection debuted, featuring tops, pants and outerwear. Men's Salvatore Ferragamo shoes and apparel began production in 1970, showcasing suits and separates as well as casual wear. Adding sunglasses and eyewear in 1998 with stitched frames, followed by a fragrance line in 2001, and watches in 2007, might suggest that the family-owned company has turned to mass production, yet their made-to-measure shoe collections continue to thrive.
