Salvatore Ferragamo has just released its Holiday 2020 line, and it’s giving us all the warm and fuzzy festive feels we need to start planning our holiday parties now.
The timeless elegance of Ferragamo meets an extraordinary line of casual and evening wear that has us begging to get dressed up and go out tonight. Starting from the feet up, Ferragamo has taken its famous ‘Viva’ shoe on a medium or low heel, and given it a croc effect with a black-gold combo nappa material for a classic daytime look. Or perhaps you’d rather go for the chunky-heeled open sandal for the same feel. Mules and slingbacks, made out of velvet and nappa, create the perfect finish for a day of festivities, and for a little extra flare, you can add rhinestone studded maxi buckles. The satin loafer also features rhinestones for a dazzling upgrade to the classic style, but it’s the pumps and ballerina shoes of an enchanting gold metallic leather and black suede that have us dancing in our slippers, itching to add them to our evening wear collection.
If sneakers are your thing, Ferragamo’s world of Holiday also includes a sneaker that is perfect for a versatile, alternative look. Black knit slip-ons with the ‘Gancini’ logo perfectly placed on the heel or in a degradé gold effect, or our personal favorite, tennis shoes with a coated gold base are all available for the more sporty brunches.
Moving on to our favorite accessory – the handbag – the ‘Viva’ shoe inspired the new must-have bag and Ferragamo icon with the ‘Viva’ bag. Made from supple nappa, black or two-tone croc effect, and a matching buckle, the ‘Viva’ bag borrows the iconic bow from its predecessor and presents an elegant addition to an existing staple in the Ferragamo family.
Or if you prefer the more romantic bow of the ‘Vara’ bag, the 2020 rendition gets a gilded upgrade to the shoulder bag along with the flap, mini-bag, and phone case. But we will be grabbing one of the more structured clutches in gold and metallic effect when going out for a night on the town, as they are the perfect fit for just what we need for an evening of festivities. (Unless people are doing a white elephant gift exchange, in which case, we will trade it for the ever-popular hobo bag with its distinguished ‘Gancini’ logo on the plain black and soft leather or suede).
You can’t do Christmas without at least one red accessory, so this year, we choose the ‘Vara’ shoe in rhinestone-studded satin, or the ‘Vara’ mules in leather. Mix it up with a red ‘Viva’ bag to match the shoes, and accessorize with a hairclip, again in nappa, to add flair to any party outfit.
The kaleidoscope of colors, shapes, and patterns in nature inspired the jungle prints with 3D effects on silk. A combination of radiant blue and ivory macro-flowers in a patchwork of colors creates the quintessential square and triangular scarf for whichever look you are trying to achieve. Pair that with the ‘Boxyz’ bag or the copious continental purse, and you’re ready for any event December throws your way.
