Alberta Ferretti, Milan Fashion Week, Spring 2013 RTWCiao Milan! On the heels of so much fashion travel (over land and through time), Alberta Ferretti offers a welcomed invitation to dip our toes into an aquatic world of ethereal femininity. Her collection inspired by the watery underworld is profoundly beautiful with illusions of iridescent anemones, lace seaweed, and other delicate sea creatures – all of which seem unaware they are made of fabric and swim through air as if it were liquid. It is exactly this quality that gives merit to showcasing this collection in abundance. Most remarkable are those looks layering sheer organza over beaded or embroidered fabrics. Without doubt, Ferretti’s luminous garments would leave even the most potent Siren of the sea breathless.
