The Italian shoemaker has come out with a new shoe designer for the approaching season, and we’re head over heels (sorry) for the latest look.
Ready for Autumn/Winter, Salvatore Ferragamo has dropped a whole new shoe collection – and it’s making us excited for the party season.
For Fall 2019, the 1927-established company has made the Refracted Heel the statement of its design, something Ferragamo claims is the “uniting feature [that] reflects the rich diversity of the world we live in today.”
Paul Andrew – who took over the position as Creative Director for the Italian company in February 2019 after the English shoemaker had previously served as Women’s Footwear Director of the brand – designed the new range, and each design holds its own flair with the unique heel designs united the collection.
Size-wise, the new heel comes in either 1cm, 5,5cm, 8cm and is made from plastic that’s both lights yet duration for those dancefloor nights, with a metallic shell to catch the light as you walk. On the design, its creator said: “The Refracted follows the Flower heel, which was itself based on the revolutionary 1939 Column heel designed by Salvatore Ferragamo.
“With this design, I wanted to propose a reflection of the world around us in 2019. The heel is designed to showcase the beauty of irregularity and variousness – a core element of the Patchwork of Characters philosophy that has been guiding our design team for several seasons now – by allowing for the play of light and surface in an apparently random manner.”
Andrew continued: “Every time you look at a Refracted heel it will appear different. This is not its flaw, but its power.”
The Refracted Heel is now available for purchase in all Salvatore Ferragamo boutiques and on Ferragamo.com.
