One interesting thing about this pandemic is that in all of the solitude fashion designers have reached new heights in terms of well thought out design. Alberta Ferretti wanted to make a practical yet elegant collection and she certainly did that. The desire to make more wearable clothing is also a trend sweeping across the fashion industry which has tended to shy away from over the top editorial looks for the last few months. Alberta Ferretti is known for evening wear but has focused more on day wear lately.
The gorgeous warm autumn color palettes she used for this collection are classic and flattering to every skin tone. Here, she celebrates the bohemian British countryside aesthetic. There were corduroy blazers, floor length silk slip dresses, organza blouses, sporty boot cut trousers, wool coats and feminine tuxedos.
“I wanted to mix and match different pieces with freedom,” said the designer, who paired a classic tartan coat with a dégradé sweater and a pair of jeans that were customized with airbrushed paint.
“I think that we have to confront reality without giving up our desire for romance, imagination, and fantasy.” Ferretti said.
She accented her new collection with what she called “a flair for free-spirited bohemia,”
