Rainbow Future

Salvatore Ferragamo is proud to present Rainbow Future, its first shoe inspired by the principles of sustainability. The model transpires from the legendary Rainbow sandal – one of the symbols of Salvatore Ferragamo, made in suede in 1938 for actress Judy Garland – and celebrates the bond between the tradition of Made in Italy and the brand’s commitment to sustainable development.

Presented in a limited edition of 100 pairs in the prestigious Ferragamo’s Creations collection, Rainbow Future is a hand-finished platform in veritable wood, crafted in organic crocheted cotton (certified in accordance with the strict environmental and social GOTS – Global Organic Textile Standard criteria), with lining in leather finished with no carbon dioxide emission or water consumption (Layertech technology).

Water glue, non-galvanized brass, and sewing thread in 100% recycled material complete Rainbow Future, wrapped in 100% biodegradable cotton bags and 100% recyclable FSC cardboard shoeboxes. Besides this special packaging, each pair of shoes will be accompanied by a limited edition certificate, describing its history and special characteristics.

The exclusive Ferragamo’s Creations line draws from the extraordinary shoe archive kept in Florence’s Palazzo Spini Feroni, at the Museo Salvatore Ferragamo, to reintroduce in limited and numbered edition some of the brand’s most famous historical models. The precious Ferragamo’s Creations models are entirely handmade using the original constructions, leathers, and shapes, and bear the brand’s historical label, designed in 1930 by futurist painter Lucio Venna.

Synonymous with Made in Italy craftsmanship, creativity and innovation, Salvatore Ferragamo has long chosen to adopt a social responsibility strategy that, in line with its founder’s principles, pursues economic growth while taking into account the impact of its actions in the social and environmental sphere. Rainbow Future has obtained the ISO 14067 certification, whereby it is now possible to calculate the emissions due to its making and compensate them through reforestation programmes, making it a “carbon neutral” shoe.

To this end, Salvatore Ferragamo will be supported by Treedom, a Florence firm specialised in agro-forestry projects and in CO2 compensation. Treedom will plant 100 orange trees in the countryside on the outskirts of Catania (Sicily), within the sustainable production of high quality products through environment-friendly processes. A code written on the accompanying certificate will inseparably link each tree to a pair of Rainbow Future – a precious symbolic gift from Salvatore Ferragamo to the clients who by the shoe, who will be able to follow its life and development at www.Treedom.net.

Philipp Plein’s Women’s and Men’s Spring/ Summer 2019 Fashion Show

platinum

Published

Chris Brown, dance-duo Ayo and Teo, rapper 6ix9ine and the wild cast of Cirque Le Soir all perform on a giant mirrored table seating 180 VIP guests… Welcome to Philipp Plein’s Spring/Summer 2019 extravaganza. It’s going to be a real thriller.

2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the global Philipp Plein brand and to warm up for this incredible milestone, Plein creates a tribute to one of his lifelong heroes: Michael Jackson. On a mirrored runway surrounded by mirrors – tonight everyone is the Man in the Mirror – the iconic symbols of the King of Pop, from his gloves and hats to those Billie Jean socks, are given the full Plein treatment. Cue a military-meets-rock’n’roll collection embellished with paillettes, precious stones, fringing, studs, skulls and crystals in black and white gold.

The collection – worn by a supermodel line-up of 30 Smooth Criminals and 30 Dirty Dianas – features favourite Plein fabrics like distressed leather and denim, shiny latex and gold-leafed python. Multi-belts hung around the waist, buckled leather gloves and boots, straps and armbands all inject the serious rebel attitude of Bad. Merging street style with formal looks, the men’s section slides effortlessly from leather quilted tracksuits and sleeveless tour t-shirts to drummer-parade jackets and Dangerous-style monochrome suiting and fedoras. Similarly, the women’s wardrobe mixes skin-tight denim and biker jackets with upscale eveningwear like figure-hugging gowns worn with oversized men’s sparkling jackets and, for the ultimate in show-stopping glamour, bejeweled Janet Jackson bodice dresses.

Two decades ago, at the beginning of the brand, the first piece that Philipp Plein made was a hand-customised military parka and, with it, the street couture phenomenon was born. Returning to those roots, this season there are camouflage hooded parkas and field jackets decorated in patches and metallic detailing throughout the collection.

Spring/Summer 2019 is a personal story for Philipp Plein and a crowning moment for the King of Fashion. This season, he is making history. So come and celebrate with Rita Ora at the after-party.
