Milan Fashion Week SS 2014: Alberta Ferretti

Saturday, 21 September 2013

Contrasting with Gucci's dark aesthetic, Alberta Ferretti's show comes as a breath of colorful fresh air with her peruvian inspired ribbons and embroideries and bright tones of fuchsia, orange and green. The designer embraced the more lighthearted and folkloric side of fashion without making it too costume-y and managed to create an extremely feminine and playful collection, with gauzy white dresses adorned with rainbow-colored weavings and embroideries. The lightness of the fabrics and the short dresses and cropped tops bring a modern touch to the collection and keeping it in her usual aesthetic - making clothes that make women feel feminine.

It's really hard to pick favorites in this collection, but among my absolute favorites are the colorful striped dress in the opening photo, the floor-length white embroidered dresses, the colorful high-waisted full skirt paired with an embroidered white cropped top, the flower-adorned bra top paired with a striped skirt and a pair of fabulous purple sunglasses, the black lace dresses and of course the green and fuchsia gowns towards the end of the show. Have a look at my selection of the most interesting looks from the runway:

I'm already excited for spring to come, with all these lovely floral embroideries and warm bright colors! Do you have any favorite pieces?
