Italian-born Salvatore Ferragamo dreamed of becoming a shoemaker, and started garnering acclaim in Old Hollywood crafting cowboy boots for Western films. This cultivated relationships with A-list stars and helped catapult his creations beyond boots with spurs. The designer’s time-honored leatherworking skills and knowledge of anatomy led to the creation of a patented sole design that supported the natural curvature of the foot. Three generations later, the label is still sought after for its handcrafted shoes and handbags—and innovative spirit. Polished and refined, the sumptuous accessories often feature house staples like the Gancini bit and the Vara bow.
