Salvatore Ferragamo is channeling its founder’s love of nature and travel, with the launch of an exclusive capsule collection, designed in partnership with Mexico-born & LA-based jeweler ‘Daniela Villegas’, who is bringing her fauna-inspired aesthetic to the Florence-based design house.
The eight piece whimsical collection is inspired by birds and wild life as showcased on iconic, Italian-made silk scarves, and ‘Ars’ shoes – originally designed by Mr. Ferragamo in the ‘50s – to create an exclusive collection that includes: necklaces, rings, earrings, and bracelets. Daniela Villegas for Salvatore Ferragamo capsule emphasizes the Italian brand’s legacy of mentoring and investment in emerging creative talents, through the Fondazione Ferragamo.
Ferragamo’s jewellery capsule, handcrafted by master Italian goldsmiths, uses an amalgamation of sterling silver, gemstones – green Topaz and blue-violet Amethyst – gold, and diamonds, to showcase the Italian spirit, as well the hallmarks of Ferragamo. To provide deeper perspective, Ferragamo’s signature Gancio emblem is seen on pieces with the birdcage motif. Likewise, the parakeets – parrots – birds of paradise symbolize abundance and exploration through a sense of mischief and spunk!
