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.
