Hockney-esque hues in Salvatore Ferragamo’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection.
Here’s some great news for spring: Salvatore Ferragamo has revamped its Michigan Avenue boutique, bringing an expanded assortment of high-end offerings to its loyal Chicago clientele. “The Chicago customer understands and appreciates the qualities that define the Ferragamo House,” says Vincent Ottomanelli, president of the Italian luxury brand. “It is all about luxury, style, tradition, and innovation.” Outfitted in mirror-polished stainless steel, warm walnut tones, and etched glass, the newly renovated (and now bi-level) store features 3,000 square feet of selling space to showcase everything from eyewear and small leather goods to handbags, shoes, and fragrances.
Customers wishing to step out in the latest fashions can also browse the women’s and men’s Spring/Summer 2013 ready-to-wear collections. Designed by Creative Director Massimiliano Giornetti, this season’s offerings call to mind the Art Institute of Chicago’s current exhibition on Roman treasures with white-hot gladiator boots and short wrapped skirts. Men can embrace the bold energy of summer, splashing out in cotton blazers and carrot-cut trousers in Hockney-like shades of spearmint, limoncello, and pink pepper. For gentlemen who would rather forgo the casual look of the latest collection, the store’s Sumisura program offers an impeccable collection of made-to-measure suiting and tailored garments. 645 N.
