The iconic accessory, the ‘Sofia’ bag is reworked for Spring/Summer 2017

Salvatore Ferragamo has given one of its signature accessories, the 'Sofia' bag a fresh new update. The new version, 'Soft Sofia Saddle' made its debut during the Italian fashion house's womenswear show at the recent fashion week in September.

Named after Italian actress and longtime client of the House, Sophia Loren, the 'Sofia' bag was first launched in the Spring/Summer 2009 season. For Spring/Summer 2017, the refreshed version is made with saddle soft leather, a meticulous leather-working technique that echoes the art of master saddle makers-all done strictly by hand. The extraordinarily soft and supple leather gives natural irregularities to the bag's shape, resulting in a unique yet chic finish. Some of the 'Sofia' bag's signature remains in the new update, including the recognizable Gancio metal closure, the soft handle and the detachable shoulder strap.

The 'Soft Sofia Saddle' bag will initially be released in four colours such as tobacco, navy blue, nude and anthracite black. The release of opulent crocodile versions will follow with eight variations available by the end of the season.

The 'Soft Sofia Saddle' bag is available for purchase at Salvatore Ferragamo Pavilion KL
