Sara Battaglia for Salvatore Ferragamo

battaglia_10

Known for her love of tassels and bright colours, Italian bag designer Sara Battaglia is the perfect match for a Salvatore Ferragamo summer collection. The capsule range, which counts 25 items, including small leather accessories such as notebooks and keyrings, is rainbow bright just like Ferragamo’s iconic wedge platform from 1938 which the Italian founder made for Wizard of Oz actress Judy Garland. Battaglia reinterprets the rainbow in monotone and gold tones on handheld bags as well as on bucket bags in spired fur. Finer details – woven silk scarf detailing and oversize tassel attachments on the bags – balance Battaglia’s pop aesthetic with a more classic and luxury edge, synonymous with the Ferragamo name.

Speaking about the collection, Battaglia comments, “It is an honour for me to collaborate with Salvatore Ferragamo, a brand whose unique mix of history,innovation,irony, style and unparalleled class provided me with the perfect chance to twist the iconic Rainbow Wedge into something new.”
