ALL IN THE FAM­ILY

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The News Bazaar -

Cre­ated al­most 40 years ago, the Vara shoe is per­haps one of Sal­va­tore Fer­rag­amo’s most pop­u­lar styles, cre­ated by Sal­va­tore’s late daugh­ter, Fi­amma Fer­rag­amo. Now, in her hon­our, Sal­va­tore Fer­rag­amo’s cre­ative di­rec­tor Mas­si­m­il­iano Gior­netti, has de­signed a new hand­bag called the Fi­amma.

Avail­able in five sizes, the Fi­amma is a top-han­dle bag with a flap pocket on its front and a lock clo­sure in a shape that calls to mind the Gan­cio – a sym­bol of Sal­va­tore Fer­rag­amo’s ded­i­ca­tion to mod­ern de­sign and lux­u­ri­ous crafts­man­ship.

The Fi­amma’s first run­way in­car­na­tions were seen in the Au­tumn/ Win­ter ’ 14 show, where ver­sions in black crocodile as well as com­bi­na­tions of pony hair, calfskin, and palmel­lato buffed calfskin, com­plete with pol­ished gold hard­ware han­dles graced the cat­walks. Also de­sir­able are minia­ture styles in limited-edi­tion vari­ants: two-tone fox fur stitched onto aged snake­skin, tweed with Swarovski crys­tals, and calfskin with in­trigu­ing stingray de­tail.

To cel­e­brate the de­but of the Fi­amma, Sal­va­tore Fer­reg­amo has re­leased a se­ries of short films and in­ter­views with in­ter­na­tional fam­i­lies. The most iconic women star in it, of which in­clude Stella, Lola, and Jac­quline Schnabel of New York, Mariel and Lan­g­ley Fox Hem­ing­way of Los Angeles, and Princess Theresa Pa­tri­cia and Princess Mathilda Mélu­sine Rus­poli of Rome. This project recog­nises their tal­ents and in­her­ited lega­cies, while show­cas­ing the Fi­amma bags they chose to match their per­son­al­i­ties. www.fer­rag­amo.com/Fi­amma
