At The Salvatore Ferragamo Hotel in Florence You'll Find (What Else?) Salvatore Ferragamo Toiletries
Oscar de la Renta is not the only fashion designer with his own bath toiletries in hotels. Long before Oscar unveiled his new line for Peninsula Hotels, fashion house Salvatore Ferragamo had put their Tuscan Soul toiletries in the Lugarno Collection, their small portfolio of Italian hotels. And thanks to HotelChatter Flickr Member, Uggboy, we've got a close-up of what the amenity line looks like.
This photo was snapped at the Gallery Hotel in Florence near the Ponte Vecchio which houses its own Salvatore Ferragamo museum downstairs. But you won't leave the hotel with just Ferragamo toiletries.
As part of the Salvatore Ferragamo Experience, guests get a tour of the museum as well as a private shopping excursion to the SF store upstairs. Guests of the Gallery Hotel's suites also get a private visit to the Salvatore Ferragamo Creations Santa Trinita Boutique, where historical Ferragamo shoe collections, accessories and a 10% discount await. Rooms start at 225 Euros.
Want to nab some Ferragamo toiletries closer to home? They can also be found at several Waldorf Astoria hotels.

Jaume Tapies and Salvatore Ferragamo
Nothing resonates luxury quite like Relais & Chateaux, and in 2013 a whopping 36 new properties are becoming members of the association. To celebrate this exciting news, the company hosted a star-studded party at NYC’s Del Posto restaurant where guests sipped 38 different Italian wines and nibbled on dishes from the hotel's newly-announced Grand Chefs, such as bay scallop crudo with Meyer lemon and celery, chickpea farinata.
Following in the footsteps of Richard Gere and other notables, Salvatore Ferragamo has been named the Relais & Chateaux official ambassador. Ferragamo, whose grandfather is the world-famous shoe designer, has owned and operated Il Borro, a vineyard and property accommodating 160 guests in Tuscany, for the last 12 years, and he has always been a fan of Relais & Chateaux. As ambassador, Ferragamo will travel all over the world promoting the brand.
“The personality of every property is very individualistic,”he told HotelChatter in an exclusive interview. “They emphasize great attention to service, and the common denominator is the great attention to the quality of the food at the properties.”
