Salvatore Ferragamo honoured with stamp
A postage stamp pays homage to the Italian designer
Salvatore Ferragamo was honoured with a postage stamp on the 100th anniversary of the maison's collaboration with Hollywood, in acknowledgment of his work and contribution to the Italian fashion industry.
Created as part of the series "The Excellence of the Productive and Economic System", the stamp features the Ferragamo logo and a pair of the brand's most iconic shoes, designed for Marilyn Monroe in 1958. The pendulum suspended from above signifies Salvatore's studies of the foot's anatomy in the creation of his iconic shoe collections.
The stamp was issued by the Ministry of Economic Development, at the Ferragamo headquarters in Palazzo Spini Feroni. At the ceremony, members of the Ferragamo family in attendance included Wanda, Giovanna, Fulvia, Ferruccio and Leonardo.
In conjunction with the 100th anniversary celebrations, Ferragamo has also tapped Colombian designer Edgardo Osorio for a fancy, playful shoe line. Read about it here.
