Archival shapes from the 1950’s and 1960’s have made a resurgance in Salvatore Ferragamo's 2019 Men’s eyewear capsule. Creative Director Paul Andrew aimed to combine this with the Gancini emblem of the house to build a line of timeless and contemporary products that embody the values of the brand's Italian heritage. Andrew has also enlisted the help of four creatives to further convey the message of the eyewear line. In a series of short films to be shared across Ferragamo’s digital channels, these dynamic young talents reveal their creative visions and professional philosophies.
