Salvatore Ferragamo*

Beverly Hills, California

Salvatore Ferragamo’s brand objective is to combine style, creativity and innovation with the quality and craftsmanship typical of Italian-made goods. This attention to detail and a regard for high-end materials is carried out beautifully in their retail boutiques. The storefront façades in stone, polished stainless-steel, and glass serve to welcome the client, while the backlit visual advertising light boxes provide ample exposure for campaign images. Once inside the store, the client is treated to a warm color palette underfoot with plush inset rugs over honey crème stone flooring. An abundance of walnut is used on the freestanding furniture and perimeter millwork. Custom logo wallpaper adds a distinguished personal touch. The shoes, scarves, accessories, women’s apparel, and jewelry each have discrete areas, but they all work harmoniously to create a unified sense of place. Gruen Associates has also completed other stores in Vancouver, San Francisco, San Diego, Santa Clara and a VIP Showroom in Beverly Hills.
