In the same year Salvatore Ferragamo bought the Palazzo Spini Feroni in through Tornabuoni, which continues to be at this time the overall headquarters of the company and since 1995 houses the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum. During the interval after the war Ferragamo’s sneakers became a logo of a growing Italy on its method to economic boom. Ferragamo soles seduced the Duchess of salvatore ferragamo silk dress Windsor, Sophia Loren, Silvana Mangano and Marilyn Monroe, who became a sexy icon along with her steel strengthened stilettos. In 1947 the “invisible” sandal gained the designer the Neiman Marcus award, the Oscars of style. For Audrey Hepburn in 1954 he created the ballerina “Audrey” which debuted the shell sole that extends as much as the heel and right up the again of it. When Salvatore died in 1960, his wife Wanda took over the business and in 1965 she took the model into “ready to wear” with the first ladies’s collection, designed by Giovanni Gentile and shown on the Pitti Palace. Then followed a set of silk and accessories (1971), mens put on (1970), perfumes (2001), glasses (1998) and watches (2007). Since 2011, designer Massimiliano Giornetti, perpetuating the elegant experimentation of the founder, follows the inventive development of all product strains for the Group, which last June 29 was listed on the Milan Inventory Trade.
