Salvatore Ferragamo's Resort 2013 Presentation Brings Luxury to the Louvre

Launch Slideshow

When we think Salvatore Ferragamo, we think leisure and luxury, and the Italian fashion house outdid itself for its Resort 2013 presentation, with an elaborate—not to mention insanely luxurious—runway show at the Louvre.

The 120-meter runway constructed in the halls of the Louvre made history, marking the first time that a brand has shown inside the iconic museum.

500 guests from across the globe, including Hilary Swank, Freida Pinto, Leighton Meester and Anna Della Russo—all dressed in head-to-toe Ferragamo—came to see the show, followed by a private tour of the Louvre’s current exhibit, “Saint Anne, Leonardo da Vinci’s Ultimate Masterpiece,” sponsored by the the fashion house, and a VIP dinner beneath the museum's famous I.M. Pei-designed pyramid.

The collection delivered every ounce of luxury and chicness one would expect based on the regal Parisian ambiance.

A delicate nude color palette with pops of soft warm and cooler tones gave the pieces a sumptuous appeal.

Leather, snakeskin, lace and fringe details added intrigue to sleek and sophisticated silhouettes, giving the looks an edgy, more modern appeal. The expert mixing of textures and shapes—a crochet-fringed skirt with a sleek blazer, an oversized knit sweater with slim structured trousers—was simply exquisite.

Creative Director Massimiliano Giornetti mastered the look of pristine yet playful, with each look making us yearn for a yacht-chartered tropical getaway.
