Milan- At Alberta Ferretti Fall 2012 show

Leave a comment

The catwalk…cobbled streets and an entrance to a villa…Madame’s villa…

Giving a new meaning to being late I missed the fittings which the Ferretti team had in mind for me( thank you and sorry) – I would have loved to wear Ferretti to the show- I managed to get myself to Via Senato  in one piece and observe. Again had a really nice seat front row so could examine the clothes form very close. I was expecting the dreamy, romantic Ferretti, her trademark amongst Italian fashion houses but the first looks were not about that. Has the Feretti woman grown up, matured…gone through a not so dreamy period? In any case the majority in this collection is about the power lady with leather, fur,croc and tailored cuts . Later there were some dresses in signature Ferretti style and some looks in really vivid colours.

The choice of music during the show (theme from Basic Instinct) suggests Ferretti woman is fatale. I could have been deaf but I vividly remember only this loop playing during the show(there was other music)   I mean yes the white coat  is definitely for Sharon Stone.  
In the movie she is always lightly dressed even though the action was supposedly set in San Francisco. Ah yes, forgot- house- car-restaurant-car-bedroom murder scene. No time to get cold really. Slight diversion there and do not want to ramble on. Spotted  the double breasted grey suit and coat and would love to try it on. Cut looked really good. Chalk -stripped coats are a big trend for Fal 2012. Loved the playfulness of the sweaters over softer dresses- Ferretti’s signature… light and dreamy.
