Alberta Ferretti Fall 2014 #MFW

"When Alberta Ferretti looks out her bedroom window, she sees birds and trees and nature in all its glory. That's because she lives in her own small forest. She brought that to life on the catwalk today. And isn't that the first rule of inspiration? Use what's around you. 'A metamorphosis of nature and woman,' Ferretti called it. But the forest that Ferretti loves was also vital. Her palette contained the colours of fall, green on the point of turning to orange, or peculiar leaf-mold tones. The textures followed suit - fabric technology duplicated tree bark; a nubby autumnal tweed was short through with gold. 'Life sunlight through trees,' said Ferretti. Dresses in felted alpaca ended in homespun fringes. There was sublimated glamour in the flash of sequins that illuminated the lapels of a olden coat, but ankle socks and suede sandals grounded the whole affair in earthiness." -
