MILAN Salvatore Ferragamo and Yohji Yamamoto have linked to supply a small footwear collection called Salvatore Ferragamo for Yohji Yamamoto. The sculptured shoes will premiere in red on the designer’s fall runway on Friday.
“Ferragamo is the top specialist in shoe making and working with them was a tremendous experience that purchased me a number of happiness,mentioned Yamamoto in an unique interview.
As the venture unfurled, Yamamoto traveled to Ferragamo’s Florentine headquarters, where he met matriarch Wanda Ferragamo, toured the museum and mined the archives. He was fascinated by Ferragamo’s trailblazing kinds, to the purpose that he believes they’d “disappoint any pupil who thinks his work is authentic.However the one factor the archives lacked was “mannish, unisex and impartial sneakers,mentioned Yamamoto.
So he took care of that with seven unfussy and sinuous types, at times influenced by the house’s iconic Vara ballerina or archival patterns.
Among the many standouts are a man’s shoe laced to the tip; an urban take on the hiking boot in a black-and-white pattern; a easy two-toned lace-up, and a strawberry red pull-on ankle boot. Retail costs vary from $470 to $1,050.
The shoessimplicity, built on difficult constructions, impressed James Ferragamo, director of the women’s leather-based items department, who labored with Yamamoto on the mission. “It was a wonderful train in design. Yamamoto may be very precise and really concentrated. We have been challenged with molding the leather-based to get the soles right, especially when the heel was part of it, and getting all the pieces to match,mentioned Ferragamo.
