Alberta Ferretti Fall 2015 Ready-to-Wear #MFW

"The backdrop of Alberta Ferretti's presentation was stunning: a time-lapse sunrise in wintry woods. New day rising. What a gorgeous, optimistic point for a fashion show to start. Ferretti took that notion somewhere even more extravagant ,to the Italian Renaissance, when an entirely new, world-changing culture dawned. For Ferretti, with all her experience, it was the sophistication of the materials that appealed. The gilded brocades, the velvets, and the tapestries of the Renaissance were translated into jacquard patchworks, or prints on georgette and velvet, or the textured trapunto of a red silk redingote. She achieved the most extraordinary effect with the needle pinching of organdie and mohair, creating a soft but substantial fabric on which she embroidered a dégradé velvet. She also showed cozy mohair coats for cold castles." -
