Salvatore Ferragamo celebrates Valentine with pink and red.

Salvatore Ferragamo celebrates Valentine’s Day with a capsule collection that revolves around bold shades of Candy Apple, Flamingo Pink, and Nail Polish Red.

This print runs through the entire Valentine’s collection, and sees two archive designs from the ’90s join forces as the star of the show in its selection of silk and bandeau scarves and in its RTW womenswear. Abstract decoration brings these iconic prints together, with their floral tulip detail and a nod to the east from the birds, and the result is a fabulous fusion of designs that creates a pattern like no other, bursting with color and intensity and unquestionably romantic.

For women, the capsule includes a leather Vara cross-body bag with front flap and a leather Vara tote, both with archive print and a Ferragamo bow grosgrain bucket. A phone case and continental wallet also come in the same shades and with Vara bow.

In men’s accessories, the Gancini pattern steals the show and brings contemporary appeal with its rubber-effect, leather-embossed design and three-dimensional texture. It can be found on bags and in a characterful leather collection of mini and medium shoulder bags and pouches featuring Candy Apple edging that elevates the black Gancini pattern. The same design has also been applied to a wallet, card case and key ring.

The Candy Apple-black pairing takes center stage in footwear, too, with slip-on sneakers in these shades. There are also belts with iconic double Gancini buckle in the same colors.

Men’s jewelry, meanwhile, showcases shades of orange, with leather bracelets featuring a stunning silver-effect Gancini clasp.

In men’s silk accessories, a stylish collection of ties sees quirky little bears placed within a Gancini outline and interspersed with hearts.
