Ferragamo's Creative Director, Massimiliano Giornetti, draws inspiration from the different female generations of the Ferragamo family and their enduring influence on the house today.

The handbag collection features ultra-sophisticated design, unique construction and a beautiful mix of exquisite materials including calfskin, python, pony hair and crocodile embellished with sleek metal hardware details. The handbag collection is cast alongside a curated group of internationally relevant women in a short film. The Fiamma handbag collection incorporates Ferragamo signature elements - innovative design, interesting combinations of exotic materials, iconic silk print linings from the 1970s, and novelty hardware stemming from the brand’s origins. The semi-circular top handle is designed in five different sizes, incorporates a functional pocket fastened with a lock that recalls the Gancio, the eternal symbol of Ferragamo's history and dedication to modern design and luxurious craftsmanship.

Luxury Detailing includes top-stitched ribbed handles, double zip hardware closure, removable adjustable shoulder strap and elegant satin lining.

Ferragamo is also set to unveil a special collection of miniature styles, a limited edition that highlights precious mixed materials including fringe embroidered nappa, two-tone fox fur hand stitched onto aged snakeskin, tweed with degrade Swarovski crystals held by lizard skin handles, and calfskin with opulent stingray details. The collection comes in Cocoa, Black, Moss and Rosewood, Plum, Atlantic, Grape, and the lighter touch of New Bisque.
