After Rome, next stop was Florence. Whilst planning the trip, I was so excited to put Ferragamo Museum on top of my must-visit-list, sorry David... I have always dreamt to visit Ferragamo Museum. Being there was a dream come true. And it felt a bit of surreal as well.
Just look at all the Ferragamo shoes! I was drooling and oh-ing and ah-ing most the time.
Sandal, 1938, Golden kid cork heel and platform sole covered with multicoloured suede
Prototype for a sandal, 1930, golden kid upper and brass pyramid heel
Sandal, 1943, red suede upper, platform sole and wedge heel in carved and painted wood
Palazzo, 1950, printed silk scarf
