ITALIAN STYLE: Tokyo got a heaping dose of dolce vita-style elegance Thursday night when Salvatore Ferragamo staged a show reprising its spring collection at the residence of the Italian ambassador. Guests watched as Ai Tominaga closed the show in a floor-length black gown before noshing on mounds of pasta and imbibing an ample selection of Italian wines. The pouring rain only accentuated the beauty of a stunning Japanese garden out back. The show marked the conclusion of Italy in Japan 2009, a string of cultural and promotional events organized by the Italian Embassy. Ferragamo chief executive officer Michele Norsa said the evening capped a difficult year for Italy, Japan and the rest of the world, but symbolizes everyone’s hope for a better 2010.
