Salvatore Ferragamo New Jewelry Line With Gianni Bulgari | Fashion



Ferragamo’s latest jewelry project is a creative collaboration with Gianni Bulgari, with three collections that represent the brand’s iconic symbols: the Ferragamo buckle, the Gancino clasp,  and the futuristic label featured on all of the maison’s shoes. The Futuristic line, inspired by the famous label commissioned by Ferragamo and created in 1930 by Futurist painter Luciano Venna, comprises ridged bracelets, earrings ad pendants in sterling silver. The graphic lines were etched onto the metal using a new method the house evocatively dubbs the Spider Web


The Vara line, meanwhile, echoes the famous Ferragamo buckle, which is emblazoned onto bracelets and silver cabochon rings, as well as more luxurious versions in white gold and diamond. The Gancino line fetes the hook uses as a purse closure by incorporating the motif into yellow and pink gold pieces that come with diamonds and semiprecious stones. All three lines, of course, can be mixed and matched in endless permutations, depending on your mood and outfit.








The Ferragamo jewelry collection will be available from late October in a limited number of stores in Europe, the United States, Japan and APAC.

David Beckham to Launch Body Wear Line



It seems not only Victoria Beckham is deep into the fashion industry, David Beckham with the help of  his business partner, Simon Fuller, are gearing up to launch a men’s bodywear line, a new men’s fragrance, and a number of other projects on the drawing board.

“It’s not my natural inclination to see myself as a brand, I’m just a person who has been fortunate to explore other interests and passions outside of the game I love,” said Beckham of his upcoming off-field ventures with Fuller. “I will always be associated with my sport but I am now working across other areas that will continue long after my career has finished.”


Beckham was the world’s fifth-highest-paid athlete last year, according to Forbes, taking home $43.7 million in salary and endorsements. His current and past endorsements, include Emporio Armani, Adidas, Electronic Arts, Diet Pepsi, Yahoo, Castrol, M&S, Motorola and Police sunglasses. Beckham, 36, and Fuller are mapping out a long-term strategy that will keep the soccer star’s name in the spotlight — and a steady stream of income flowing to the business partners — once he retires from the game.
