BEAUTY: Shoes--Salvatore Ferragamo

Paul Andrew now helms the house of Salvatore Ferragamo, and this Spring Summer '20 show at Pitti Uomo marked not only the first time Ferragamo has shown in the house's hometown of Florence, but the first time any fashion show has been allowed to take place in the historic Piazza della Signoria just off the Arno. While the clothing was pleasant enough, it was the shoes (of course, since Ferragamo was originally a shoe designer) that got me.

A wedge espadrille is fantastic (love!) but just take a look at the other hybrid invention: a suede sock-shoe permanently attached to a flat sandal held on with cord! Incredible!
