At Alberta Ferretti the color code was, for a change, not girly nude and pink, but earthy. Sand, beige, terra cotta, mustard, tangerine, olive and ivory set the mood for a boho collection. One where suede and sheer dresses followed up on each other presented in front of a backdrop video of sand. Yet the overall feeling was light and airy, like you’d expect from Ferretti. A large part of the dresses was floor sweeping making some loose fitting outfits, like a coral red dress, a sand colored satin shirt dress, an off shoulder striped number, appear perhaps a little too shapeless. To reach a younger audience, that is. An audience whose attention Ferretti will definitely catch with this festival/safari chic presentation. Those macramé bodices, cropped lace tops, Victorian blouses, long dresses with high slits, sexy shorts will appeal to them for sure. A tangerine colored floor sweeping number seemed fit for queen Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones. On trend gladiator sandals to go, but perhaps best make a choice between statement necklace and earrings. In a finale of frayed dresses four feathered pieces seemed a little heavy, although they’ll look exquisite on a red carpet somewhere. It’s no secret creating dreamlike dresses has been Ferretti’s specialty over the years. Yet today the 65 year old designer proved she’s still in touch with a more casual, youthful and free spirited side too.
