FERRAGAMO IN THE EAST: Salvatore Ferragamo celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Florence-Kyoto town-twinning with a runway show, held Wednesday at Kyoto’s Seiryu-den, a wooden temple located at the top of Mount Higashiyama. On the catwalk, the brand showed its fall/winter 2015 men’s and women’s collections, previously presented in Milan, along with some never-before-seen looks from Salvatore Ferragamo women’s resort collection, which will be fully unveiled later this spring. The runway show was followed by a cocktail party, where guests could admire “Glass Tea House,” a special anniversary installation by Japanese artist Tokujin Yoshioka.

For the occasion, the Florentine company also unveiled an exhibition at Ninomaru Goten Daidokoro, inside Kyoto’s Niko-jo castle. The exhibit, which is open until April 22, includes some of Ferragamo’s most iconic pieces – such as the Kimo sandal inspired by traditional Japanese footwear – as well as a selection of Ferragamo’s Creations shoe styles and the Ferragamo Jewels Miniature Preziose, an exclusive range of precious pendants reproducing some footwear designs featured in the exhibition.
