Salvatore Ferragamo’s Vintage Inspired ‘Fiore’

Salvatore Ferragamo’s Limited-Edition Eyewear, is inspired by a pair of Vintage Heels, which was reinterpreted by Design Director, Paul Andrew.

Synchronicity, innovation and tradition combine in a fresh new way- Ferragamo Eyewear presents, Fiore.

Back in 1938, Salvatore Ferragamo made the “Altana” and “Gotica” shoes for the U.S. market and a host of Hollywood actresses. It was the first appearance of this flower-shaped heel, carved from several pieces of cork, stitched together and covered with nappa leather.

Today, the elements of this iconic style are channelled by Ferragamo Eyewear to combine a modern, graphic style with cutting-edge production techniques.

Ultralight and rimless, “Fiore” includes a nylon lens whose sandblasted effect around the six-petal floral design is achieved through a special laser manufacturing technique. The iconic, unique build of the metal bridge is just one part of a vast array of intricate detailing, including customized temples and tips, a laser-etched logo on the left temple, and the nickel-free metal treatment. Sophisticated colour combinations add further dynamism to the structure and lenses, with three stunning variations available: Shiny Gunmetal/Maple, Shiny Gold/Birch, and Shiny Gold/Pumpkin.

Available from Salvatore Ferragamo boutiques and select retailers.
