Discover ALBERTA FERRETTI Fall Winter 2021.22 Collection, that brings a harmony of contrasts – a balance between decisive and reassuring, presented during the first day of the ongoing Milan Fashion Week. The collection features enveloping shapes, which embrace the body in protective textures, as well as minimalistic looks, and dreamy pieces that bring a sense of escapism.
“Classic shapes in unexpected volumes suggest unexpected ways to wear staple garments. Coats edged in blanket stitching are wide like ponchos, or fluid like dressing gowns, and can be worn alone, or under sturdy trench coats. Shoulders are marked. A ruffle peeks a boo from the turtleneck collar of a ribbed sweater, like a small ruff, while long pleated skirts open over soft trousers. A new vocabulary is affirmed: sensuality is not measured with the inches of bare skin. On the contrary, there is pleasure in covering up, from the neck down to the ankles.
Overalls and fatigues alternate with sinuous raw-cut dresses, blousons and high-waisted slacks with shearling coats, denim suits with tuxedos. The memory of the archetypes is transfigured in the artisanal treatment of the surfaces: lacquering and sequin embroidery that suggest previous uses; flocking and color dyes on denim. The pragmatic spirit leaves room, as the day progresses, to a feast of woven ribbons, shine and transparencies. Boots, wide-brimmed hats, and soft bags punctuate the story.” – from ALBERTA FERRETTI
