6 Celebrity Who Are Already Fans of Maximilian Davis – Ferragamo’s New Creative Director

The young London-based designer Maximilian Davis has announced that he will be embarking on a new and exciting fashion journey as the creative director of Salvatore Ferragamo.
The Manchester-born creative, who showcased his eponymous brand’s autumn/winter 2022 collection during London Fashion Week last month, said on Instagram that he was “deeply honored” to be joining the renowned Italian label. Additionally, Davis, who was tapped by Lulu Kennedy to create under the Fashion East umbrella in 2020, shared that he was “looking forward to articulating his vision”.
Even before Davis, who cut his teeth at Grace Wales Bonner, landed the high-profile new gig, his harlequin patterned garments and elegant evening dresses had become an A-list favorite. Kim Kardashian’s outing in his plunging scuba body threatened to break the internet, and is up there with the all-time great celebrity rebound outfits. Meanwhile, self-proclaimed bad gal Rihanna has had several major moments in Davis’s designs. Her ComplexCon outfit in November, which included a show-stopping carmine halter from the spring/summer 2022 line, sent social media into a frenzy.
Below, six celebrities who can’t get enough of the Central Saint Martins graduate – and new creative director of Salvatore Ferragamo’s – designs.

How Salvatore Ferragamo is Celebrating its Mother’s 100th Birthday

How Salvatore Ferragamo is Celebrating its Mother’s 100th Birthday

Portrait of Wanda Miletti Ferragamo in 2004
On December 18, Italian fashion house Salvatore Ferragamo celebrated the 100th birth anniversary of the mother of the brand, Wanda Miletti through the publication of her biography and an exhibition. Stepping forward as CEO of the Italian fashion house after her husband’s death, Miletti knew nothing about running a business. Yet, she loomed a legacy out of her brand, successfully transforming it into an international trendsetter. Set to launch on May 22 of 2022, the Women in Balance exhibition also puts forward other working women who have successfully managed a profession during Italy’s economic boom and built themselves profiles away from the pre-constructed duties set by society.

The exhibition sheds light on those women’s roles in a historical context while also focusing on how they played CEO in their businesses and their homes, taking care of their families as mothers and wives. It also underlines modern-day concerns regarding relationships, work-life balance, and work-related decisions. “When my father died, she had never worked before. She knew a lot about the business and was so proud of what he’d done; they had a very intimate connection, and it must have been awful to find herself alone,” shared Leonardo Ferragamo, Chairman and son of Wanda Miletti.

Coming from a humble background in Southern Italy, Wanda Miletti met her husband during the summer of 1940 in one of his visits to her family. Despite the 24 year age gap between the two, their powerful chemistry started a family of eight, slowly growing in popularity in Florence, where the Ferragamo store was located. “My mother was wonderful. There was a large age difference between my father and my mother. He adored her, spoiled her. But because of that, he kept her like a jewel,” Ferragamo added.

Soon after her husband’s early death in 1960, Miletti’s fear of failing her husband’s dream was comforted by the support of the brand workers and her two eldest daughters, who were already working with their father. She took the Florence-based shop and transformed it into a world-renowned name that dressed men and women from head to toe. With the help of one of her grandchildren, the family business soon introduced new products and lines, diversifying the brand’s offering with a well-reputed profile as a company that thrived on solid social morals and product quality. “My youngest brother, Massimo, was only two years old when my father died. After thinking what to do, she decided she would try and go on. She did with such determination, intuition, and capacity that no one would believe she hadn’t been trained for it,” Ferragamo said.

Inside the Wim Wenders-Directed Salvatore Ferragamo Film with Actor Gaia Girace

Italian actor Gaia Girace, known for her work in My Brilliant Friend, is the star of Salvatore Ferragamo’s newest campaign. Shot in Milan under the direction of the award-winning director Wim Wenders, the campaign takes the form of a film within a short film and features the brand’s FW21 collection. Girace plays a director on the fictitious set, alongside Swedish musician, Felix Sandman, who plays a crew member. Titled A Future Together, it tells the story of the ensuing love story between the two, depicted entirely through subtle glances and brief moments. The campaign also adds a th

Here, Girace shares her memories from working on the project, and advice for aspiring young actors.
What is the most memorable moment you had on set while filming the campaign?
As a newcomer myself, I was excited when I found out that I will be working with Wim Wenders, an acclaimed global cinema icon, directing me in this fashion movie A Future Together. Some of his movies are masterpieces of cinematic history and I’m aware that I’ve been given an amazing opportunity. We only spent a few days on set, but I will always have the indelible memory of a silent, thoughtful, highly professional man able to grasp every nuance of the personality and gestures of his actresses and actors.
How did you prepare yourself for the short film?
I simply put myself in the shoes of a young director, taking inspiration from the various directors I met. For the rest, I played the typical girl in love.
What is your favorite piece from Salvatore Ferragamo’s FW21 collection?
I love fashion as I can express and stand out from the rest of the crowd. I don’t like homogenization and I always try to create my own style. I think that clothes reflect a person’s personality and define them, but the opposite is also true: a strong personality brings out the best in what someone’s wearing, and in this, I find a link with Ferragamo fashion, timeless pieces that ooze elegance and style that able to boosts my confidence and look good. I really loved all the leather items and the shorts in particular, as well as the trenches. Colors are amazing: we need color in winter too, to match with white or black.

What was working with Felix Sandman and Wim Wenders like?
I’m still starting out as an actor. Getting a call from a company like Ferragamo, which represents Italian excellence in the world, was naturally a source of great pride and joy. We only spent a few days on set, but I will always have the indelible memory of Wim Wenders as a silent, thoughtful, highly professional man able to grasp every nuance of the personality and gestures of his actresses and actors.
With Felix was fun. He was pure and such a sweet gentleman. He helped me with English, and I taught him words in Italian, which he enjoyed repeating on a loop. We talked about what we’d done and what we’d like to do. In those few days, we had fun and I think you can tell that during the short movie.
In what ways does acting for a campaign differ from acting for a film? 
In a film, actors are the protagonists and the clothes are the “side dish.” In a commercial for fashion, the clothes are the protagonists, so even the acting is marginal. I always prepare my roles to the best of my ability, regardless of the project, but obviously studying a character that is on a fashion set – even if this is directed by Wim Wenders – had a different imprint.

What are some of the most important lessons you learned from this collaboration? 
A wonderful thing I learned is that all the characteristics that we usually classify as flaws or weirdness in the fashion world, become strengths that make us different and more beautiful.
Who is your biggest inspiration?
I am not one who imitates or who draws inspiration perhaps from an actress, I am a girl who draws lessons from what she lives and experiences, in private and in her working life, regardless of people.

How have you changed as an actor since the first season of My Brilliant Friend?
Let’s say that now I’m more aware of who I am and what I can do, what my strengths and limits are. Little by little, I feel I can improve more and more, maintaining spontaneity but putting it in a more “harmonious” key.
What do you think are the benefits and pitfalls of starting your acting career as a child?
One of the privileges is that you have the possibility to play multiple roles even characters of different ages. You meet many people from whom you learn many things, you travel, you have many different experiences, you become more mature, you learn to relate, to communicate and to assert yourself.  The biggest disadvantage is that you grow up too fast, you miss your adolescence, creating relationships becomes very difficult and you lose your private life and privacy right away.
What is your advice for aspiring child actors?
Never neglect your private life, for any reason in the world.

Naheel Alshubat, owner of N Designs has announced that all of the proceeds from her sales will go towards supporting this year’s Ataya cause. Supporting nurses in seven countries–the UAE, India, the Philippines, Egypt, Mauritania, Albania, and Bosnia–Ataya will offer 200 fully-funded scholarships to aspiring nurses in these countries. “Ataya has been an amazing platform that helped establish N Designs in the UAE and GCC markets and continues to do so every year,” starts Alshubat of the shopping exhibition. “Nursing has always been one of the most noble professions that demands an extraordinary amount of compassion and selflessness, and we came to realize the importance of it during their significant role as front-liners in the Covid-19 pandemic,” she comments. “Donating all of the proceeds this year is my way of giving back, especially since it is to a great cause.”
Ataya’s higher committee explains that this year’s charitable selection was largely based on the report by the World Health Organization, which proved the need for 6 million additional staff to work in the nursing field around the world. “Training and empowering aspiring nurses will contribute to providing the necessary healthcare to those who deserve it. And so we aim to provide knowledge to those who need it and support a new line of frontline workers who are competent and able to help fight the spread of the virus and end the pandemic,” states the Ataya higher committee. Under the umbrella of the UAE Red Crescent, Ataya has worked to support different programs aimed to “enhance human life, health, and education in countries facing a shortage in services in those fields,” adds the committee. Ataya, operating for ten years now, “seeks to support the capacities of humanitarian organizations and charities in those countries to play their role within their societies and spread the concept of giving and solidarity among different segments of society. Through our initiatives, we aspire to advance the global humanitarian mission undertaken by the United Arab Emirates under its wise leadership that has pushed the UAE to the forefront as a world-class international donor of humanitarian aid.” Ataya, Until May 31st

A camel’s hump, entirely decorated with flowers, shimmies across an undulating, monochrome desert-scape. Two white feathered birds sweep across a lavender-colored sky. A rooster’s lofty plumes appear to glisten against a golden sunset. These are just a few of the tableaux of the natural world that come to life through silk in the world of Salvatore Ferragamo. Since the Seventies, Fulvia Ferragamo Visconti, the soul of silk accessories at Salvatore Ferragamo, has seen that the Italian house flourish in this highly technical and creative milieu to the point that along with shoes, silk accessories became integral to its visual identity. To celebrate its history, a new exhibition at the Museo Salvatore Ferragamo in Florence offers a closer look at the marriage between creative bravura and craftsmanship. It explores the story behind manufacturing a scarf, through the lens of the revered Italian house.

It was in the early Seventies that Ferragamo’s daughter Fulvia created the first silk accessory for the house. The designs were manufactured in the Como area by craftsmen like Ravasi, Butti e Ostinelli, Ghioldi, and Canepa, who specialized in various print techniques. Como had emerged as the location in Italy for creating printed products and serving to elevate the Made in Italy cache since the Thirties. Italy had already established itself as a manufacturer of silk fabrics since the Middle Ages. The company hired in-house illustrators to design under Fulvia’s supervision. She saw that sketches were made using a collage technique and miniature scenes of flowers and the animal world would appear as such, modified according to her wishes, until they were finally made at real size. Her love of the natural world stemmed from her own hobbies; the late designer, who passed in 2018, was a passionate horse rider and liked to sail. Her taste, inspiring joy, will endure for generations to come.
Silk is on until April 18, 2022 at Museo Salvatore Ferragamo in Florence, Italy.

Suspenseful, structural, beautiful, edgy: these are just a few words to describe the Salvatore Ferragamo SS21 collection inspired by the extraordinary worlds of Alfred Hitchcock.

00:00 / 00:00

It all started one fateful night. Creative director Paul Andrew sat safely at home rewatching Hitchcock films on repeat. It took but a split second for Andrew to notice a vital difference in the Hitchcockian images flickering in front of him, for suddenly, the once distant and unthinkable settings seemed oddly familiar. In a moment of epiphany, the world on-screen paralleled the reality of his own, with utmost surrealism and peculiar beauty.

A whirlwind later, Andrew has designed an entire Salvatore Ferragamo collection that blurs the lines between the reality of our world and the exotic world of Hitchcock’s imagination. From unique shapes to striking symmetrical detail, this new collection reveals the visual style of the famous director from every angle. Like the films, the entire collection feels beautifully architectural, where every detail is precisely articulated with meaningful allure. The calculated nature of the collection elicits tension and thrill, guiding human eyes through a unique experience of cinematic voyeurism. Bright colors contrasting neutral tones, this collection screams Hitchcock with every turn it takes.

Honoring the esteemed director, the new collection bursts with artisanal techniques, including hand-applied embroidered feathers and a handspun “floating” string skirt. Taking Hitchcock to the age of technology and sustainability, it also features impressive technical innovations, such as a flexible eye defying “tridimensional” seersucker, a dress in recycled jersey, and new sustainable-grade wool crafted into outerwear.

Dressing women and men for a Hitchcockian evolution, this collection exhibits head-to-toe artistry that is fit for movement, especially in a world of anticipated action. Whether in square-toed sling-backs or a reinterpreted F-wedge, Salvatore Ferragamo will have you ready to step into the thrill of Hitchcock’s imagination and the uncertainty of our reality with technicolor confidence.
