Enriching, expanding, evolving: the Salvatore Ferragamo Pre-Spring 22 collection repurposes a heritage of innovation to reflect the positive future ahead.

Updating the Ferragamo vocabulary while staying true to its fundamental expression, the collection combines modern craftsmanship with the future-facing and sustainable values encapsulated in several of the looks.

The collection was photographed at the Museo Marino Marini in Florence, a space whose past incarnations, as first a church and then a factory, have always been updated to reflect the present. Most recently it was repurposed for love: reshaped by Marina, the wife of artist Marino Marini, to be a space dedicated to his creation. The collection reflects the multiple facets of Ferragamo’s progressive aesthetic and the diverse characteristics of those who wear it. This season’s ‘couple’, united by the intimacy of their regard for the art around them, is placed in the museum to reflect the observation of J.M.G. Le Clézio.
