Ferragamo’s Crocodile Kitten Heels
Salvatore Ferragamo and the label’s cool 1970s-fashion logo are vintage-store staples: few insoles are as recognizable because the one that strains the brand’s shoes, and even fewer footwear feel as trendy and nostalgic, still. Figuring out this, the Italian house recently consulted with its archives in Palazzo Spini Feroni to be able to reintroduce a select group of crocodile kitten heels — sharp-toed burgundy pumps, slate sling-backs, emerald and chestnut T-strap Mary Janes (that also are available in a maroon ostrich skin) and Regency-era lace-ups — with its prefall assortment. “What I want to create is accessories and garments that won’t ever lose their allure,” says Ferragamo’s creative director Massimiliano Giornetti, “that go beyond tendencies and can be used for years and years.” True to salvatore ferragamo shoes sneakers form, these low-riding lady heels don’t look a day over 20-one thing when worn with prefall’s chocolate pleated croc miniskirt or disco printed jumpsuit. “What actually will be outlined as ‘classic’ will never lose an intrinsic message of modernity,” Giornetti says. So spare them the arrivederci‘s, please.
