The Louvre opened its doors to a runway show this Summer . On June 12, Ferragamo has unveiled its Resort collection on a 400-foot runway under the archways of the Denon peristyle.
The mid-season resort collection being held Tuesday evening is a celebration of a brand that began as a shoemaker for Hollywood’s first stars — and went on to become a household name for ready-to-wear both for men and women.
The Louvre is also respectfully tipping its hat to Florence: a city which – like Paris – has been a pole of creativity across the centuries.
One honey-colored mini dress with stitched beige leather patches was a strong example of this, while another dress with hundreds of light leather appliques was a nod to the traditions of Parisian haute couture — highly detailed clothes, with intricate artisanal stitching.
