Ferragamo teams up with handbag designer Sara Battaglia to launch a women’s capsule leather goods collection, entitled Sara Battaglia for Salvatore Ferragamo. The collection is an homage to the founder’s colorful life, while promoting the House’s commitment to promoting new talent.
Battaglia’s eponymous handbag line is known for its modernity via unconventional shapes, pop art colors, fringe, brass, quiry graphics and plush leathers. The collaboration juxtaposes the style of Battaglia with Ferragamo’s heritage of complex craftsmanship – evoking the the Italian notion of Lo Splendore dela Vitta (the splendor of life).
The 4 handbag styles available in multiple sizes are the essence of life’s many splendors. A satchel bag in rainbow colored leather or colored mink with a satin tie, a metallic drawstring bucket bag, leather day bags, and evening clutches finished with brass and lacquer. Prices range from $1,950 to $4,400.
