In What's New, People by Accessories Staff

New York—It was nearly a Hollywood on the Hudson experience. Salvatore Ferragamo celebrated Tuesday night the culmination of its 100 Years 100 Days digital cycle last night with a live interactive event, highlighting the luxury Italian House’s century-long ties to cinema and honoring its illustrious founder’s pioneering spirit.

Ferragamo welcomed celebrity and VIP guests into the fantasy world of Gancio Studios that presented movie sets from throughout the years, while showcasing the House’s debut Signature eyewear and timepiece collections. Each piece, a nod to Salvatore’s hallmark exploration of exotic materials and Technicolor dreams, is adorned with the Gancio, the iconic, signature House emblem whose roots lie in Florence’s medieval Palazzo Spini Feroni, serving as Ferragamo’s headquarters since 1938 – a landmark of the Made in Italy Tradition.

Gancio Studios was inspired by Andy Warhol’s “Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes” prophecy becoming reality in the digital age and how the splendor of every day life is now captured through the cinematic moments we all create and share via our smartphones.

Italian Luxury

“My father was a visionary, pushing beyond the creative boundaries of fashion alongside the cinematic revolution of Hollywood. His legacy – innovative design and craftsmanship, uniquely mixing and repurposing the finest materials, and a playful use of color – continues to inspire desire in today’s digital age, bringing the best of Italian luxury to the heirs of his original celebrity clientele,” said Massimo Ferragamo, Chairman.

Launched in September, 100 Years 100 Days is a digital platform celebrating the 100-year parallel stories of both Salvatore Ferragamo and Hollywood, offering daily posting of exclusive events, films, features and collaborations over a 100-day period.  http://icons.ferragamo.com
