What comes around goes around, and that's definitely true for Salvatore Ferragamo
, the classic luxury brand that's having a chic renaissance
under creative director Massimiliano Giornetti. The Italian label held its resort '12 presentation at the historic James B. Duke Mansion
(hello, Gossip Girl
!) on 5th Avenue on Tuesday, and the la dolce vita set is still reminiscing. Hollywood stormed the city as starlets and socialites flocked to the sidelines to peep the collection's classic shapes—all with the token nautical influence customary of the resort season. If you've suddenly taken a liking to the pair of sensible Ferragamo heels you borrowed from your mom's closet all those years ago, you're on the right track. Ferragamo duds once graced the bods of many an older Tinseltown star, but newcomers like Emma Roberts, Minka Kelly, and Lily Kwong
are a sure sign that the brand's taking a turn for the fresh and new. Plus, with a party following at the venerable Carlyle Hotel, Porto Ercole has never seen closer.
