Ferragamo’s Fiamma: Finally, Something Mothers and Daughters Can Agree On

-------


Sometimes a bag is more than just a bag. Maybe your mom passed it down to you, or you purchased it together on one of your many successful shopping ventures. (Come to think of it, when is the last time you didn’t ask for your mom’s approval before buying something?) Salvatore Ferragamo’s new Fiamma handbag collection was designed with the mother-daughter relationship in mind, along with the concepts of heritage, legacy, and multigenerational style. Named for Salvatore Ferragamo’s daughter, the bags have something for everyone: They combine classic Ferragamo signatures your mom would adore (i.e., silk print linings from the seventies, novelty hardware, and mixed exotic skins) with playful new shapes for the younger set. With countless sizes and finishes available (like snakeskin, pony hair, and fringy leather), rest assured you won’t match. To celebrate the Fiamma launch, Ferragamo created a sweet film about chic mother-daughter duos around the world, including Hanayo and Tenko Nakajima; Stella, Lola, and Jacqueline Schnabel; and Mariel and Langley Fox Hemingway—just in time for Mother’s Day. The film offers an intimate glimpse into the women’s relationships, consistently reminding us of our own stylish, loving moms. Mariel Hemingway, for instance, cites creativity as one of her family’s greatest features. “There’s an overwhelming sense of free spirit in the entire family,” she says. “I mean, Langley’s perspective is so unique to her, she is so uniquely herself. As a mother, it’s cool to see your children express themselves and become individuals in their own right.” We would hope our mothers had such nice things to say about us.

Toasting The Artist Who Saved The Standard From Itself

-------

Multimedia artist Marco Brambilla’s (pictured) work is very familiar to a certain partygoing set. He’s the man behind the trippy elevator video, Civilization, that plays on the long ride to the 18th floor of the Standard hotel. “I’ve seen Marco’s work too many times going up to Boom Boom Room,” Waris Ahluwalia admitted last night a private dinner to fête the artist’s latest exhibition, RPM, at the hotel’s High Line Room and Terrace. “I know every scene and every bouncing breast.”

It almost wasn’t to be. “We originally had a lame concept for the elevators: gold bricks to convey that we were the ‘gold standard’ of hotels,” André Balazs said in a toast. The audience—which included Cecilia Dean, Marina Abramovic, Jacqueline Schnabel, Dustin Yellin, and Casey Neistat—groaned. “It was a terrible idea.”

When the lights dimmed, the guests dutifully put on red stereoscopic shades they had been given to watch the psychedelic 3-D video, featuring a continuous loop of racing clips from the Monza Grand Prix processed with archived Ferrari photos and set to the sound of roaring Formula One engines. Midway through the screening, a rowdier set spilled in. The group, including Theophilus London, had come from the OHWOW fête taking place just upstairs to check out what Brambilla had created. “I wanted to capture the feeling of euphoria and danger, which are equally present in the mental state of a driver during a race,” the artist explained. Luckily, cabs were the preferred mode of transport home.
