Outside the Ferragamo boutique, the historic downtown might take a passerby back to colonial times, but inside, just as in other hotels and commercial venues; the ambiance changes into intimacy and modernity. The elegant shop is now ready to host clients interested in purchasing any variety of accessories, which may include handbags, leather jackets, shoes, shirts, polo shirts, blazers and scarves.
According to local journalist Carolina de Pombo, “downtown is a modern and historic mixed fashion mecca, which can’t be missed in a city that hosts more than a million tourists a year who come from all around the world”.
The collections presented at the opening exhibit where selected from the Milan Spring/Summer 2014 Fashion Show, a good choice for Cartagena’s strong Caribbean weather. At the store, one may find all the necessary accessories, from a basic designer piece to the exclusive Sofia handbag, available in beige, cayenne and ice blue.
With this new boutique, Ferragamo opts to be another fantastic entry in Cartagena’s fashion roster, which now also hosts other national designers, including Silvia Tcherassi, Kethy Tinoco, Vélez, Mario Hernández or international brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Lacoste, Versace, Benetton and Desigual. ■
