The newly renovated Ferragamo Vancouver flagship is the only Canadian destination to carry Ferragamo’s “Creations,” an exclusive line offering a limited number of re-edited versions of the brand’s most iconic shoes. The main attraction, of course, are the “Marilyn” styles, re-issued to correspond with the Marilyn exhibition at Museo Salvatore Ferragamo, currently on view in Florence, Italy until January 28th, 2013. Vancouverites can walk in this legendary bombshell’s shoes, with her famous 4” stiletto pumps ranging from $650 to $1750, available until August 16th. Among the styles that the actress’ size 6 feet cherished are the “Honey,” a violet satin pump adorned with a rhinestone brooch; “Beauty,” a woven gold leather and suede stunner; and the sexiest of all, “Red,” pumps encrusted with red Swarovski crystals, all having helped the icon perfect her wiggle walk.
In addition, the Vancouver flagship is also showcasing Audrey Hepburn’s favourite style, “Lesley,” a scalloped shape with a low-heel, designed for the gamine former ballerina herself. On the flamboyant end of things, Judy Garland’s “Rainbow” platform—Ferragamo’s most famous shoe—returns in all its muti-coloured suede and gold glory, and Carmen Miranda’s glass mosaic “Miranda” sandal sparkles with the intensity of a disco ball.
