Salvatore Ferragamo Signature Collection

Salvatore Ferragamo presents the Signature Collection, a new special project focusing on the world of Eyewear and Timepieces inspired by the Gancio, the Maison’s iconic ring-like symbol. An exclusive capsule of sunglasses and watches that constitute a revisiting of key strands in Ferragamo’s DNA.

Rich of heritage and contemporary content, The Signature Collection builds on the main stylistic traits of Salvatore Ferragamo’s work: the use of colour (with a palette combining vibrant with more traditional tones), a sophisticated mix of materials drawing on continuous experimentation, and glamour, a key element in the strong and uninterrupted relationship between the brand and the world of cinema and Hollywood stardom.
Care over detail becomes a hallmark and culminates in a new and modern interpretation of the Gancio form. In the Eyewear line, the Gancio shaped ornament wraps around the oversize frame to end up on the back, while in the Timepieces collection it appears on the lugs on the sides of the case and climaxes on the case back. In all the versions – stainless steel, IP gold or two-tone - the watches measure 38 mm in diameter and mount a strictly Swiss Made quartz movement.
Inspired by the theme of colour - so central to Salvatore Ferragamo creations - the Timepieces offering plays on vibrant hues like the fuchsia, grey or orange of the elaphe skin straps and combines them with deliciously nuanced guilloché sunray dials. Likewise, the Signature sunglasses express this mood through a sumptuous palette of graded tones: black-grey, turquoise, airforce blue, orange, burgundy and brown.
Salvatore Ferragamo’s eclectic juxtaposition of materials, the fruit of symbiosis between creative experimentation and sheer craftsmanship, is seen in the original use of karung, a highly prized skin, in two of the sunglass versions: black with chocolate temples and havana with black temples. Similarly, the watch with diamond studded lugs has the eccentricity of a dégradé blue, nude or beige karung strap.

Lastly, The Signature Collection nods to the world of glamour in its more exclusive versions: on the wrist, diamond dust on dials and diamonds on lugs or top-ring, while eyes are veiled by sophisticated crystals and studs.
