On April 12th, the fashion world celebrated the newly redesigned flagship with an exclusive curation from the highly praised Spring Summer 2012 runway collection of Ferragamo Creative Director Massimiliano Giornetti. The star-studded event benefited the family housing endowment of The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and was attended by Massimo Giornetti and Chiara Ferragamo along with MSKCC chairmen Nina Garcia Conrod, Eugenie Niven Goodman, Emilia Fanjul Pfeifler and Gretchen Gunlocke Fenton.

Creative Director Massimiliano Giornetti describes the new Women’s Spring Summer collection as an “explosion of color and prints.” This inspired use of color was not lost on Paul Ziff, President of Ferragamo Timepieces for the US and Caribbean. According to Mr. Ziff, “This re-designed Fifth Avenue flagship creates an exceptional environment for our new watch collection. I’m sure that Ferragamo customers will enjoy the experience when they visit.”

The new store definitely provides the perfect environment for the introduction of the dramatically restyled F-80 Carbon Fiber GMT model that was unveiled recently at Baselworld 2012. With its bright orange band and coordinated orange indices and hands, the F-80 Carbon Fiber GMT would be right at home as part of the Ferragamo Spring Summer 2012 runway collection.

Special guests at the FIfth Avenue flagship re-opening, James Lohan and Tamara Heber-Percy, would certainly appreciate the F-80 Carbon Fiber’s GMT dial with it’s convenient second time zone feature. Their highly successful Mr & Mrs Smith travel booking service has just published an exciting new book of Italian hotel destinations, including Massimo Ferragamo’s own Castiglion del Bosco in Tuscany.
