Fashion and art collide—Leonardo da Vinci and Massimiliano Giornetti joined forces on Tuesday night for a fashion first. The Louvre—the most visited art museum in the world—set the stage for the Salvatore Ferragamo’s 2013 resort collection. History in the making, this was the first time a runway show has taken place in the historic monument.
Indian Princesses and warrior goddesses strutted the elongated runway in lavish lace-up’s, custom crochet and fabulous fringed leather. Many of the looks boasted intricate patchwork, delicately placed sequins and a mélange of python. Paired with over-the-knee snakeskin boots and fringed handbags, the collection offered an effortless elegance.
Delicate shades of sand, blush, peach and gray paid homage to the legendary stonewalls of the Louvre. In response to the collection, Giornetti stated, “The Ferragamo girl is cool, but she’s got culture. It’s super-modern and yet connected with the classics because every piece is the product of a tradition of ancient craft.”
