'A Special View of Salvatore Ferragamo’s Atelier' Exhibition in Milan


'A Special View of Salvatore Ferragamo’s Atelier' is the intriguing title of a special exhibition set in the Accademia delle Belle Arti di Brera, among the most prominent of Italy’s art institutions, founded in the heart of Milan in 1776.

 2 SALVATORE FERRGAMAMO ATELIER EVENT Ferruccio Ferragamo, Fulvia Ferragamo, Wanda Ferragamo, Giovanna Gentile Ferragamo Ferruccio Ferragamo, Fulvia Ferragamo, Wanda Ferragamo & Giovanna Gentile Ferragamo 

Stretched through the academy’s set designing classrooms, all the way to the Sala Napoleonica, the show is running alongside Milan Women’s Fashion Week for three days only, from Sunday, February 23rd, when it was unveiled at an exclusive evening reception co-chaired by Ferruccio Ferragamo, Chairman of Salvatore Ferragamo, and Franca Sozzani, Editor in Chief of Vogue Italia. Two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank mingled with international socialites and fashion icons such as Miroslava Duma, Princess Melusine Ruspoli and Leigh Lezark.

The Brera Academy, where art has been taught and studied for more than two centuries, was setting for this event. Generations of students from all over the world have found here the means and skills to follow their calling to art, acquiring the proper techniques to transform ideas, colours and materials into veritable artworks. Like the most gifted of students at Brera, Salvatore Ferragamo was guided by clear standards of beauty, an inexhaustible curiosity for the most unexpected materials, and the extraordinary ability to transform them into beautiful, consistently innovative handcrafts. Innovative in the brilliant choice of colour and style that made them true artworks; but especially surprising in the exquisite workmanship of materials that made them masterpieces - witness the five iconic models chosen by Mrs Sozzani to occupy a place of honour in the display: ‘Rainbow’, ‘Renaissance’, ‘Red’, ‘Butterfly’, and ‘Invisibile’.

Enlarged photographs of Salvatore Ferragamo’s original atelier at Palazzo Spini Feroni, the medieval seat of the company on the right bank of the river Arno, artfully recreated its atmosphere to ambient the original hand tools used by the Maestro.


In homage to Vogue Italia’s fiftieth anniversary, falling this year, Mrs Sozzani has also picked fifty of Salvatore Ferragamo’s most notable re-editions from the archives of the company’s museum to complete the exhibition, sitting side by side with the long-acknowledged artworks housed in the halls of Brera. Her choice included several milestones in the history of Italian fashion and design, cuttingedge stylistic intuitions shaped using the most diverse materials, such as ‘Gondola’, with its hemp upper and cork wedge; the cellophane sandal ‘Splendida’; ‘Mirrors’, featuring silvered glass covering the heel; and ‘Flowers’, the multi-coloured knot-stitched raffia sandal, to name a few.

Links à la Mode (February 20th): FW FTW

With New York and London Fashion Weeks all over, and as we head into Milan and Paris, excitement for the fall is all a buzz on the internet. Of course it's easy to get overwhelmed with all the fashion fabulousness, so that's why we're here to help! This week we have some excellent recaps of NYFW and even a NYFW vs. LFW street style walk-off! It's pretty hard to choose between the two, both being sooo good. If you're already burnt out from the fashion week talk, we do have some excellent style posts too, so check them out!

Vivienne Westwood Spring/Summer 2014 Advertising Campaign By Jürgen Teller


Leslie Winer first worked with Vivienne Westwood for the early 80’s Buffalo (Nostalgia of Mud), Autumn- Winter 1982-83 Collection. Decades later Vivienne and Andreas came across Leslie at a party in Paris and were mesmerised by her look.

SP-02 (2)

Leslie Winer is an enduring fashion muse, musician and renegade. Grandmother of trip-hop, former punk model, dub lesbian, and the first androgynous fashion model Leslie Winer is the definition of an original.


Shot by Juergen Teller in the early 90’s – Vivienne & Andreas decided she was the perfect choice for their latest Spring/Summer 2014 campaign. And with such a strong look they decided to shoot both the men's and women's collections on her.

Excellent ad campaign with ultra-cool women! *LOVE*
