Edgardo Osorio x Salvatore Ferragamo Shoe Line Celebrates the Brand’s 100th Anniversary

Salvatore Ferragamo has now been collaborating with Hollywood for 100 years, and to celebrate, they are releasing a special 12-piece footwear capsule collection. With the design expertise of Aquazzura founder and designer Edgardo Osorio, we knew the Salvatore Ferragamo shoe collection would be chic and sophisticated; we weren’t disappointed.

“Edgardo’s South American culture and his sophisticated creative aesthetic embody Ferragamo’s lifestyle,” said Massimiliano Giornetti, creative director of Salvatore Ferragamo. Both the brands seem to place importance on simple designs with a flair, so this collaboration is bound to product some jaw-dropping pieces.

Giornetti went on to describe the Edgardo Osorio for Salvatore Ferragamo shoe collection as a reinterpretation of classic Salvatore, by saying it is “ironic, playful, attentive to details, creative with a touch of originality, all combined with comfort and luxury.” It’s great to hear when design houses choose to stick to their roots, which is especially great in this instance, since the brand is celebrating a substantial milestone in the world of fashion.

“For me it’s an honor to reinterpret the extraordinary style of Salvatore Ferragamo for a new generation of women,” said Osorio. “This collaboration is very important for me because it marks the first ten years of my career, which started in Ferragamo at 19; my first job in the world of luxury footwear.” This is clearly an important collection and milestone for both parties involved in the collaboration, which makes the result all the better.

The collection definitely has a series of simple silhouettes, but many of the patterns are far from quiet. So Giornetti wasn’t wrong when he said the looks were playful, but understated this aspect, as the shoes are downright fun.

You can especially see this contrast between two pairs of shoes, which are the same design and only different based on their color. One pair is a sexy black, strappy heel, complete with a lace detail and is a great look for dressing up or down. But the other is the same exact look – only with six bright and fun colors replacing the black. These two looks perfectly sum up what Giornetti wanted to show in this collaboration. The brand is still in touch with its classic sophistication, but is also realizing this is a time for celebration – and the Edgardo Osorio for Salvatore Ferragamo shoes are acting like it.

Another very noteworthy pair of shoes to look forward to is easy to spot: just look for the wings! There are two pairs of shoes in this collection with wings jutting out from the tops, and they are created similar to the previously mentioned set – one black and the other colorful. These are definitely the loudest shoes in the collection, and are the perfect way to complete an uber-fun party outfit.

They also gave us fun looks with bright polka dots. This takes a fun, almost childish concept and pairs it with a mature shoe. This juxtaposition really serves the collection well, especially with the continued theme of fun and celebration. But not all the shoes in this collection are so extreme. A simple pair of red cutout shoes embody Salvatore’s classic house aesthetic, and can also add the perfect finishing touches to a sophisticated party outfit, or even for a professional one.

The Edgardo Osorio for Salvatore Ferragamo collection is being released at the end of November (so yes – very soon!), just in time for the holiday season to get underway. If you’re looking for shoes to finish off your favorite holiday party looks, Salvatore Ferragamo’s new capsule collection has just the thing!
