Who doesn’t want to own a classic luxury designer bag? Yet there are plenty of options to choose from but you have to invest your money wisely. Martini on heels will always try to bring you the best of latest trends and fashion, and those who are fashion fanatics very well know that a designer bag is not only a fashion statement but also a necessity! It speaks volumes about your taste and personality. This time straight from the runways, the iconic and one of the best selling accessories from Ferragamo- Sofia bag is grabbing every eye ball.
Characterised by abundant class, style, and painstaking attention to detail and definitely, superb trimming, it is simply loved for its incredibly versatile combinations and unique design detail. This signature style is often reworked and reinterpreted, and has now inspired a new look and function for the range, the “Soft Sofia.” The Soft Sofia debuted as the star accessory on the catwalk at the Salvatore Ferragamo Spring Summer 2017 Womenswear fashion show, and is available to buy from November 2017.
Some of the Sofia Bag’s key details remain, including the Gancio signature metal closure, the soft handle, and the detachable shoulder strap. The new variation is much more than an update of its iconic mother-bag. However, it exudes an entirely new attitude and is made in saddle soft leather, a meticulous leather-working technique that echoes the art of master saddle makers.
This extraordinarily supple leather gives slight irregularities to the bag’s shape, that when combined with Ferragamo’s sophisticated design, results in a classic handbag with a highly natural new guise. The uniquely crafted leather and special treatments are true innovations that have helped to radically change its image. The Soft Sofia Saddle bag is the Sofia Bag au naturel.
The bag will initially be released in four colours including tobacco , navy blue , anthracite black , and nude . The release of opulent crocodile versions will follow, with a total of eight variations being released by the end of the season. Each will share the same leitmotif: superb, handcrafted and traditional artistry, designed for excellence.
Technical Details of the bag:
The edgeless technique involves a lengthy series of steps, all done strictly by hand and exclusively with saddle soft leather. This incredibly soft and supple variety of leather is treated with an ultranatural washing and tanning technique that has been used for the past 50 years. Chosen primarily for saddle making, it epitomises excellence and exclusivity. A meticulously precise ribbing procedure, also traditional to Florentine craftsmanship, gives the bag its flawless profile and ensures it remains a truly timeless piece.
The linings, made solely from leather are worked flat, involving an exceptional level of skill. They are laid out to perfectly fit the leather and then cut out and stitched.
The Soft Sofia Saddle reflects the outstanding craftsmanship involved in Florence’s saddlemaking traditions. The saddle soft leather is treated with natural oils, to protect it from scratch and wear and raw cuts, on the front hide a practical flat pocket. The Salvatore Ferragamo logo is intricately knit-stitched to the bag’s profile by hand, and the Gancio is featured as both a fastening and a decorative motif.
