Sustainable Ferragamo

The Museo Salvatore Ferragamo looks into the future with its latest fashion exhibition.

The Museo Salvatore Ferragamo in Florence celebrates the talent that is the Salvatore Ferragamo house of fashion as well as embraces the importance of sustainability through its new exhibition, Sustainable Thinking. The fashion exhibition walks you through vintage pieces showcased to illustrate the history of the Italian fashion house, while highlighting more recent creations that were designed with the planet in mind and the idea of reducing the house's carbon footprint. Until the 16th of January, 2021, you can walk through the fashion museum and discover a coat made from yarn upcycled from fishing nets and 100% recycled polyester, which Ferragamo collaborated on with London-based designer label Felder Felder, and admire a kimono coat made from organic wool, alpaca, mohair and silk. The house's craftiness is also clear in a shirt designed using a biodegradable ecological fabric that is made from eucalyptus tree wood pulp, and a pair of handmade sandals, romantically named Rainbow Future, designed using wooden heels covered in crocheted organic cotton.
