Salvatore 'shoemaker to the stars' Ferragamo has come a long way as a label since its founder, a Naples native, started cobbling shoes in the 1920s.

These days the design house encompasses luxury bags, perfumes, eyewear, men's and womenswear as well as the iconic shoes that made it famous when Marilyn Monroe wore them in Some Like It Hot.

This season's collection is one to definitely watch with its heavy references to the '70s -- the biggest trend on the horizon for spring.

It was a delicious cocktail of honey, coffee, toffee and cream-toned yumminess, chock-ful of mouth-watering tweed short suits, leather shorts paired with chunky knits, flares and pussy-bow silk blouses worn with tan-leather and gold accessories.

Over-sized shades and '70s-style men's trilbies finished off the look. Those who want to look way ahead of the posse come January should study this show, take inspiration, and use this collection as your blueprint for sale shopping!
