Foulard Salvatore Ferragamo

Foulard Salvatore Ferragamo for Castiglion del Bosco Collection

A recent exhibition at the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum in Florence has celebrated the fashion house’s heritage and reputation for producing exquisite printed silk accessories.
In particular, the exhibition marked the important role of the late Ms. Fulvia Ferragamo (1950-2018), daughter of Salvatore Ferragamo, and her influence and leadership in combining extraordinary creative intuition with high-level industrial craftsmanship. From the age of 20, when she joined the company, Fulvia Ferragamo created a continuous stream of women’s and men’s silk accessories with personalized patterns and prints featuring decorative subjects. The first designs that gave fame to the Ferragamo foulard’s were characterized by flowers and exotic animals formed by a patchwork of flowers, creating a unique touch of elegance.

Later, at the suggestion of Chiara and Massimo Ferragamo, an exclusive collection of silk foulards, pochettes and ties, was created for members of the Millecento Wine Club and The Club at Castiglion del Bosco.

The first foulard of the collection

The first printed carré-shaped neck handkerchief was created in 2011 and is dedicated to Brunello di Montalcino wine and the art of wine tasting. The original design was realized by Fulvia Ferragamo, using the typical colors that recall those of Brunello di Montalcino of Castiglion del Bosco.

The second foulard of the collection

In 2019, a second exclusive foulard was designed, this time by the creative team at Salvatore Ferragamo. It represents the ancient castle of Castiglion del Bosco and is characterized by the iconic patchwork of flowers that Fulvia Ferragamo used many times in her most famous Salvatore Ferragamo foulards. The silk neck handkerchief was realized in two different nuances that evokes the typical colors of Tuscany’s nature.

An icon for Castiglion del Bosco

The Castiglion del Bosco silk item collection also includes a series of elegant ties and pocket handkerchiefs for men with a classic design characterized by the ancient castle of Castiglion del Bosco as well as the golf club’s ever-popular and ever-present Labrador, Mary.
It’s always a pleasure to see these valued artisanal items at club events and dinners. It says so much about what is important to the Ferragamo family.
