Salvatore Ferragamo’s new Viva Bow bag

YOUTHFUL, modern, and versatile, the Viva Bow bag by Salvatore Ferragamo is the latest addition to the Viva family. The Viva Bow bag is born from the success of 2019’s Viva shoe. Like the bag, that shoe was designed by Creative Director Paul Andrew to reflect the aesthetic lineage of the house by referencing the classic Vara, which was created by Fiamma Ferragamo and launched in 1979. The Viva Bow bag is designed both to complement and elevate the Viva shoe, and shares the key decorative motif of a modernised update of Vara’s iconic grosgrain bow. That bow is presented in lightly padded soft nappa leather with a lacquered clasp both colored to match the body of the bag, and serves to mark the magnetic closure position of the bag as well as echo the family ties of Ferragamo’s design heritage. Presented initially in two sizes, the Viva Bow bag features two roomy compartments. It features a detachable, matching leather strap edged with a tonal painted metal chain that allows the Viva to be worn from the shoulder, cross-body, low from the hand, or as a clutch. While geometrically distinct, the bag’s fabrication in softly cut leathers featuring same-color stitching — as well as that same-color bow — transmits a subtle and modern informality. In the Philippines, Salvatore Ferragamo is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc., and is located at Greenbelt 4, Rustan’s Shangri-La, Rustan’s Makati and Solaire Resort & Casino.
