Milan Fashion Week AW 2014: Alberta Ferretti

Friday, 21 February 2014




The first day of shows in Milan ended with the Alberta Ferretti show. Following the change in aesthetic at Gucci from dark and sultry to pastel colors and quiet daytime looks, the least I expected was another change at Alberta Ferretti! This time it's the opposite - the designer known for her airy, feminine dresses turned darker with this collection inspired by different processes of nature. The sound track "I am a Tree" by Mother Gong and Daevid Allen set the mood for the show, in which the fabrics mimicked moss growing over tree bark, underwater algae or seaweed. The legendary workmanship of the House was yet again astonishing, as mohair threaded with golden filaments or boiled wool with leather inserts were used to shape the dresses and bell skirts.

A lot of different elements came together in the creation of this collection, one can see the elements of nature, alongside feather dresses and thick embroideries depicting birds. The styling was in line with the fabrics used, many of the models strutting the runway in thick wool socks paired with sandals. Towards the end of the show the designer couldn't resist and added a few of her sublime frocks. Among my favorite pieces were the brown wool dress paired with an orange handbag, the oversize green and brown mohair sweaters, the knee-length green lace dress, the two oversized green wool coats, the bright orange dress, the brown and gold dress and of course the gowns towards the end of the show. Have a look at my selection of the most interesting pieces on the runway:




































































What did you think about this show? All in all I think it was a bit too dark for me I preferred the more playful looks of the past seasons, but as you could see I still had a lot of favorites!
