Milan: Once upon a time Alberta Ferretti presented a romantic fairytale as models walked on a snow-covered woodlands-like area. The backdrop made it perfect for a folkloric-meets-regal-meets-romance collection – gorgeous white lace dresses and rich velvet gowns covered in gilded metals stood out while long crochet cardigans and fur-trimmed coats brought some mystery and sophistication to the woodlands. Ferretti talked about how social media have changed the way we communicate – ‘through images shared in different social media channels’ – and how she wanted her woman to stand out from the crowd. Therefore her collection was filled with statement pieces – from those high-ruffled neck chiffon blouses and the pure white lace dresses to the floor sweeping tapestry jacquard skirts – every single garment looked intriguing and highly desirable. – Diego Sanchez
