Condition: It's in very good condition - very clean and looks like it saw little use. There is, however, a scent of perfume around the neck area. This should come out with a dry cleaning - I have not had the sweater cleaned.
A bit of information regarding Ferragamo. This designer single- handedly revolutionized the Italian shoe industry, establishing a workshop in Florence in 1927 after designing shoes in Hollywood for the movie industry. Due to the reputation he made in Hollywood, he was able to establish a large American export business. During the 70s, Ferragamo’s wife and also his daughter diversified into other fashion lines.
This is a beautiful sweater - Ferragamo produces high quality goods and this sweater is made in a lovely muted color combination with a 80s flare for the dramatic. This will keep you warm and looking elegant!
