The Florence-based luxury label has revealed a capsule set of accessories dubbed forty-two degrees, created by the studios designers Luciano Dimotta and Flavia Corridoni.
The range of accessories was made by Ferragamo creative studio designers, Luciano Dimotta and Flavia Corridoni, who used easy production methods yet maintained the brands notoriety for creative details.
42 Degrees contains both men and women’s items. The 3 piece selection contains a sneaker, a shopping bag and a backpack. The products are made with materials such as natural rubber, metal-free tanning leather, an insole made from textiles and corn made from recycled plastic.
Designers of the in-home creative studio were challenged to “make accessories with sustainable materials and coherent with the signature style of the brand,” the firm said. A jury, including the company’s James Ferragamo (Vice chairman); the brand creative Paul Andrew (director), Ferragamo, Guillaume Meilland heads of mens wear, as well as digital influencers and journalists evaluated their works.
Named after the tendency of 42 degrees where the sun lights strike on water drops, permitting the natural phenomenon of the rainbow to happen, the collection is accessible starting Thursday at the brands internet shop, as well as at select flagships. The range retails at between $599 for the shoes and $1,150 for the shopping bag.
All the pieces of the collection are crafted using Italian materials and are realised by firms that operate in Italy and have been present on the market for years. Shoes and bags are crafted from the leather that has been developed exclusively for Salvatore Ferragamo with metal free tanning and wet white chrome. The sneaker base is made of calfskin while soles contain a top percentage of natural rubber and are dyed with shades obtained from plants grown on Italian soil. The fussbet insole is completely made of organic fibers such as kenaf, corn, and wool, and it does not have chemical binders.
