Instead, I got TWO brand new sneakers! *Grabs wallet and laughs*
I have to admit, this purchase was quite inadvertent since I only had my eye on those Acapulco sneakers. But, a quick detour into a Ferragamo boutique proved to be a successful hunt when I saw these hi-tops.
Say hello to the Italian craftsmanship wonder named Colonia from the house's Fall/Winter 2011 collection.
This baby is encapsulated in dark leather, canvas and suede finishing with the the house's monogram at the hind part in nylon fabric. The shoe laces are in black but there's an extra pair of laces given in white (ick!). I think I'd go for the black one, all the way.
What I love most about this pair is the attention to details given, as in any other Ferragamo shoes. The stitching were immaculate, the fitting were superb and the small monograms here and there added that touch of Ferragamo-ness in every pair (like that metal top shoe lace holder and the white rubber sole). Tres chic.
This pair of Colonia retails for RM2030 but I got them at RM1400 after a hefty 30% discount. This was the last pair available in Ferragamo at Suria KLCC.
Come to think of it, I used to drool over its predecessor exactly a year ago whenever I passed by that window display in its Pavilion KL store. Now, I proudly own one.
Patience, baby. Patience.
