What’s old really is new again. The famed fashion house is dipping into its archives for a limited edition collection of iconic styles. Among them, a four-inch sexy red stiletto, which was made for Marilyn Monroe; a ballet slipper designed for Audrey Hepburn, and a gold mosaic platform created for Carmen Miranda. To mimic the originals, each style will be reproduced by hand with the same leathers and design techniques.
The collection, dubbed Ferragamo Creations, will sell from $600 for a ballet flat to $5,400 for an alligator pump at the house’s New York flagship (212.759.3822) beginning in March, and at Ferragamo Creations boutiques in Milan, Paris, Tokyo, Beijing and Florence. Only 50 pairs of each style will be available worldwide. Additions to the Creations collection will be made twice a year, so there will always be something new again.
In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
