Oz in the News 12.15.15


Ferragamo revisits Marilyn Monroe’s pump and Judy Garland’s rainbow shoe in capsule collection  For the capsule collection released in time for the holiday season, Osorio, who started designing shoes at Ferragamo before launching his own Florence-based brand Aquazzura, created a contemporary Marilyn-inspired pump with sheer netted panels for a sexy reveal. He also referenced the famed 1938 Judy Garland “Rainbow” wedge with a steep stiletto heel and a feathery winged rainbow accent on the ankles. “It is not literal at all,” said Massimiliano Giornetti, Ferragamo’s creative director. “At the same time, it has the same spirit and the same approach that Salvatore Ferragamo had for developing the wedge for Judy Garland.” The collection was launched as part of the luxury brand’s 100-year anniversary celebration of Ferragamo’s connection with Hollywood and is meant to be the first of a series of capsule collections in other areas across the group from jewelry to women’s handbags and perhaps menswear, tapping young talent and encouraging experimentation.

Once Upon A Time Season 5: Oz’s very own Dorothy to return in March!  Dorothy of Kansas is coming back! Hold your horses, though, because we can guarantee that she will not be as you would have expected. Cast your mind back to the second half of Season 3 for a moment – a 15-year old Dorothy (played Matreya Scarrwener) was sent back to Kansas from the Land of Oz by the Wizard (or rather, by the wicked Zelina who pretended to be the Wizard). Well, with Zelina herself also having just been sent back to whence she came by her darling sister, Regina, the path is open for a new Oz-based storyline and, as TV Line has reported, that’s exactly what we’re gonna get!
