Alberta Ferretti RTW Fall 2014

Alberta Ferretti ventured into the woods for fall, channeling her inspiration into a strong, if narrow point of view.


“I imagined animated woods, where nature embraced the body of a woman,” Ferretti said backstage before the show. Though it may sound arty and ethereal, the designer worked the theme with unexpected depth and sobriety via heavy textures and embellishments. A striking gold brocade jacquard, for example, looked like rugged tree bark on a voluminous green coat with a large fur-collared hood.


Ferretti also played up decorative elements such as sequins, feathers, flower appliqués and ribbons. When they came together in one look — as in the shift that was also printed in a digital nature motif — there was the danger of moving into “odd bird” territory, but she executed her flights of fancy with control.


Some of the dress shapes veered Valentino but Ferretti provided her own take with subtle whimsy. Even the accessories had a wildlife charm, including flats covered in peacock feathers — for that walk on the wild side.
