Alberta Ferretti parades in Milan without artistic experimentation as a wish that the world can return to the reality of live things, without the need to resort to digital tools that make everything too virtual. The collection drew on the same sense of reality. The collection has drawn on the same sense of reality, it is realistic, adhering to today’s needs, but not without special elements.
Ferretti has revisited the classic tropes, adding something more to make them special. He chose dark colors – black, charcoal and anthracite – which he lit up with some green, blue and mustard glow. He presented thin city coats with sharp shoulders and flounces at the back for a surprise effect. Wrapped shearling coats look comforting, as the current situation demands; the capes of the blankets were hand-sewn on the hem, as if to hint at craftsmanship. Trousers were offered in many soft tailored iterations, sometimes worn elegantly under subtle pleated skirts.
As for the superficial decorative elements, such as lacquers, sequins, crocheted with rosettes of silk ribbons, Ferretti worked on elaborate textures to convey sensuality and tactility. The evening dress that closes the collection enters the scene in a series of black dresses with dramatic tones, among them a shining gold dress totally dipped in sparkling sequins, which seems to scream glamor.
