Alberta Ferretti has always been on the side of women: she observes them, studies them, and knows that these are difficult times, even for romantics like herself.
But instead of reclaiming her fashion-feminine title to satisfy her client’s more pragmatic needs, this season, she’s used romanticism as a tool to elevate and add a touch of eccentricity. into the wardrobe every day.
She revisited utilitarian staples, cropped the jacket to contrast with the proportions of loosely pleated pants, and puffed up the sleeves of a long coat for a glamorous touch. Mixing textures and colors, Ferretti paired leather tops with skirts and taffeta shirts with big bows, softening the demeanor of strong women in beret and boots.
As the line progressed, experimentation with fabrics and graphic motifs was made, including different versions of black and white geometric patterns mixed together to create an eclectic clash. . While this constitutes the most daring and unexpected part of the collection, the designer emphasizes that Ferretti always has room for dreamy evening gowns and ethereal chiffon gowns. Sometimes reality can wait.
