ALBERTA FERRETTI: A POSTCARD FROM VENICE

In her last Fashion show, Alberta Ferretti made us dream about Venice.

While thousands of tourists are in Venice, taking part in its magnificent Carnival, walking around in fancy dresses in this city’s magical scenery; in Milan, 50 different looks inspired the beauty and the majesty of the City of Love, were walking down the catwalk of Alberta Ferretti.

Grand Canal–print chiffon dresses, gondolier stripes on everything from sweaters to an astrakhan jacket, velvets embroidered with the Piazza San Marco’s famous lion, and hooded capes and masks out of Carnival via Eyes Wide ShutThe Young Pope’s Saturno hats got a nod, too.

Landscapes and symbols, prints and patterns that often coexist on chiffon dresses printed with a painting effect on hoods embroidered in gold or one with printed images of the lagoon landscape with the inner lining of breitschwanz in blue and white stripes.

For the first time on the Italian catwalk even the Islamic veil, the hijab, worn by the American Somali model Halima Aden.


For the show’s finale, Ferretti sent out the models in black days-of-the-week sweaters, a second installment of the colorful capsule collection she launched at her combined menswear and Limited Edition demi-couture show in Paris last month.

 

Here’s more looks from the runway:

  • Being 23, I see the world in a different way- in love with fashion and culture from a young age. I was born in a multicultural family in Italy, that promotes the love for beauty in every field, from the food to the fine arts. This encouraged me to cultivate my hobbies, my passions and not to be afraid of the unknown. My motto is “The future you see is the future you get. “ Chasing my dreams has always been a constant in my life. This played a big part of me moving to NYC. I can only hope to become the next Giovanna Battaglia one day. During my free time, I explore wines, tacos, and my love for avocados.
