Salvatore Ferragamo introduces Ballerina Shoe, a collection that pays homage to one of the brand's most iconic designs: the famous round-toed suede ballerina shoes which Ferragamo created for Audrey Hepburn in 1954. The new collection also inspires a special digital project featuring both video and image content titled #unspokenelegance, which plays with words of different languages, drawings and artworks that ride within the theme of dreams and reality.
The Ballerina Shoe collection features one of Salvatore's key patents known as the Opanca sole that derives inspirations from Opanke, the moccasins worn by Native Americans where the sole covers the heel and forms a single piece with the upper. Additionally, sinuous lines that follow the curve of the foot make walking comfortable as the structure of the shoes is flexible. Comfort is also further boosted by the slip-lasted design, craftmanship and practical hardware detailing such as the adjustable elasticated strap.
For Spring/Summer 2015 the Ballerina Shoe comes in a variety of textures from glossy patent leather with laser-cut lace effects to striped fabric with soft consistencies of suede and denim-effects. Alongside classic shades of Ferragamo Red and Oxford Blue, the colour palette also comprises seasonal hues of Macaron and New Iris as well as New Optic White.
