Alberta Ferretti F/W 2013

Milan: For fall, Alberta Ferretti presented the delicate, feminine looks for which she is known, while also including tailored pieces to provide some structure. Fluttery chiffon and filmy lace dresses and tops will be familiar to her clientele, but Ferretti gave them wool skirt suits and embellished coats to round out their wardrobes. Nature, a theme common in the designer’s collections, was a key element here; leaves and flowers were embroidered onto the bodices of chiffon separates and decorated the plackets and pockets of curve-accentuating coats. Glossy panne velvet and jewel appliqués provided a touch of opulence toward the show’s end, but Ferretti made sure the glitz was controlled and purposeful, in keeping with her elegant yet not ostentatious aesthetic. Though the addition of tailored separates was a wise move, the highlight of the collection remained Ferretti’s signature eveningwear, this season in sophisticated black and white. –Joanna Manganaro
