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.
