Opening in Florence on Thursday, the iconic Italian accessories label, Salvatore Ferragamo will debut their new exhibition, “Across Art & Fashion” at the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum.
Exploring the unique relationship between these two disciplines, the exhibition will focus on the inspiration Ferragamo drew from the world of art, and his fascination with avant-garde styles and 20th century abstract art. It will showcase examples such as the shoe inspired by the work of American artist, Kenneth Noland.
Not constrained just to Ferragamo’s work, the exhibition will also display one of the collaborations between Elsa Schiaparelli and Salvadore Dali, A YSL dress inspired by artist Piet Mondrian and more modern works by Hussein Chalayan and Jun Takahashi of Undercover.
These will be just a few of many works on display across some of Florence’s most iconic cultural venues. Covering influences from the Pre-Raphaelites to the surrealism movements, the exhibition will trace collaborations between artists and designers from the 1930’s through until current day examples from current collections.
Running from May 18th 2016 – April 7th 2017.
