In 1923, the driven but humble Salvatore Ferragamo came to Hollywood and became the shoemaker to the stars, cutting his teeth by fitting the weary feet of beautiful film actresses of the day. The love affair with the shoe whisperer and Hollywood continued throughout his career and so it is fitting that the brand has come full circle with a pop-up shop with exclusive goodies for all extremities of fashionable women. The empire has expanded to jewelry, handbags and clothing along with shoes.
The shop can be found in the Grand Hall of the Annenberg Center for Performing Arts in Los Angles. If you are like me, always in search of that shoe or bag that sets you apart, while also keeping your feet happy, then its your lucky day. There are oodlies of wedge sandals, and lambskin bags and more in an array of colors and designs to satisfy any fashion maven or someone who appreciates seriously comfortable shoes. Mr. Ferragamo’s legacy lives on all over the globe and indeed the empire is having a moment—and this nano second of that moment is in Hollywood.
