Salvatore Ferragamo Forever

Shoes glorious shoes! While searching for more good stuff to bring to you from the vaults of Stylesight, I stumbled upon a collection of pictures one of our correspondents took at the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum in Florence. I was totally blown away by the level of craftsmanship and innovation and just had to share. The man created the cork wedge heel way back in 1937! What’s not to like? The museum was opened in 1995 by the Ferragamo family and features sketches, patents and over 10,000 shoes dating from the 1920’s up until Ferragamo’s death in 1960. Looking at these pictures reminds me of what fashion can be: timeless and inspiring art.

  • Drool! Those are gorgeous. I actually watched a tour of the Ferragamo factory and museum on tv last night, and I swear I must’ve been gaping the entire time. I need to go buy shoes now:)

  • A beauty. I just watched some show where they actually went inside the Ferragamo factory in showed how 1 pair of shoes is created. So much detail & craftmanship. They even showed the molds for Audrey Hepburn & Grace Kelly!

  • If only Louboutin or Jimmy Choo could do the same…

  • those are insane. I could do without the elfishness, but the wedge heel is rockin.

  • All of those are so gorgeous.

  • I would like to see a continuation of the topic
