fall collezioni, milan: alberta ferretti

in mirroring the bold palettes we’ve seen scattered amongst other collections in new york & london, also strongly represented at the house of gucci; the FW11 collection by alberta ferretti is vibrant to say the least. in adapting the same liquified design details from christopher kane in london, the collection channels more of a sixties feel with beautiful use of sheer textiles, beautifully patterned coats & rich detailed beading. use of satin was included beautifully while the collections bold palette faded to a simmer of soft greys, oranges, black, neutral & blue. seemingly more mature than what is presented for ferretti’s sister collection, sophistication is felt in each piece & a clear direction is seen. i would’ve liked to see much more development around concepts; though beautiful all the concepts don’t balance well within the same collection. that said, the few pieces that are more elegant than casual are done exceptionally well & are classically styled, detailed & designed.

sasha pivovarova for alberta ferretti, spring

shot by paolo roversi, sasha pivovarova of IMG appears for the beautiful alberta ferretti summer/spring 2011 campaign. seen against a covered studio backdrop in light saturation, sasha appears immaculately styled in the ferretti spring collection allowing the brand to tap into a larger association with femininity. while much of the FW10 season focused on palette dominance based on all black everything; spring really represents the anti-black moment, stylistically. collections presented for the spring are much more soft, romantic & free flowing. in design, those elements were accurately & creatively translated through this season’s campaign. as referenced last weekend, i greatly admire the work of roversi, photographically he is a perfect fit.

spring collezioni: alberta ferretti, milan

taking spring to an ethereal edge, the alberta ferretti collection presented for spring showcases flowing gowns, relaxed silhouettes & soft neutrals. the ferretti collections usually host a much more relaxed angle on fashion design. though im more about hardcore, high gloss glamour; i respect the overall vision of the collection & feel that the concepts shown were done well. a thoughtful collection with distinct separation from other collections that will appear on the runways of milan.

fall collezioni, milan: alberta ferretti

the alberta ferretti collection presented for FW10 is kept simple & no form of chic is ever lacking. i love the collections use of neturals & deep navy. dope style elements like the fur coats in runway looks 6, 8 & 11 send me over the edge. winter is all about your statement coat; plenty of which can be found within this collection. while the textiles used for the dresses & tops in the collection showcase that expected etherial feel that the ferretti brand did for spring, i really liked the fall fashion additions made to the existing style aspects for the ferretti label. an interesting element of the collection was also seen in the intricate beading & satin covered footwear. bad bitches will be fuckn with the feather skirts seen in this collection as well as the interesting constructed frocks. at the face of the collection, you see is simplicity. in taking a second look, you’ll be surprised to find that the collection has depth- beyond any form of a trend. i was very impressed with the collection, from start to finish. i loved how the intricacy of the collection was not overdone but rather complimented by the casual chic updo’s on the models. a strong collection for the fall, each look was completely relative to last season with fair progression for the fall season. so ill.

fall collections, new york: philosophy di alberta ferretti

the philospoy of alberta ferretti collection showcases leather & shades of neutral, pale blues & rich browns. the leather pieces in the collection are seemingly worn as armor & the construction of the coats has a strong military influence, along the lines of what we’ve seen for burberry’s pre-fall & menswear collections.  as an individual responsive to structure, the coats are ill to me. i’ve never been one for long skirts, those seem a bit matronly in my opinion. a fair collection for the fall season. its the coats.

shot by steven meisel, the spring albera ferretti campaign is not still about capturing movement. dorethea returns for the brand which is lacking in comparison to last season’s windswept library concept. the spring sheers are distracted by the floating ribbons & lack of poise seen with the models in mid-air. campaigns should elevate the level of glamour seen with the clothes, not downgrade it. the black background washes out the collections muted tones & neutrals. last season was better.
