EVASION OF CONTEMPORARY INNOCENCE
Innocence, naive, sunkissed. The freshness of a life lived in open air provoking adventures of the everyday. Alberta Ferretti’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection is an intense, delicate and natural development of the contemporary feminine aesthetic through a story of the complexity of a woman who moves through the sustained rhythms of everyday life.
“In this collection, I wanted to create a new attitude that encourages women to voice their strong personality through innocence, gentleness and an almost dreamy calmness. It is with this thought in mind, I was able to build a story that describes a physical adventure and an internal exploration, a more introspective journey. This leads to reflecting on the joys of living, while provoking women towards a deeper understanding of themselves in this world,” said Alberta Ferretti.
A strategic use of iconographic references, that have become a part of Ferretti’s DNA. A new silhouette of varying volumes and shapes that skim the body. Hues from pastel pink, light blue and green encompass the colors of the desert at dusk. Plissé soleil gives new meaning to gowns and short tunics. The pursuit of perfection seen through the craftsmanship of crochet embroidery on chiffon and the San Gallo lace highlighted on the mini poplin dresses, slips and rompers. The utilitarian inspired trousers are redesigned in unexpected shapes. A contemporary emphasis on feminine sensibility progress the collection with bush jackets of a parachute effect. Coats and jackets shown with detachable pockets. A dynamic range of daywear that separates itself from streetwear, shown in strength and details of the designs, while supporting the need for sportswear in a variety of romantic nuances while maintaining a relaxed, effortless glamour.
Accessories make a bold statement; large crochet raffia backpacks paired with flat sandals in braided ribbons.

The Alberta Ferretti Fall/Winter 2018 collection depicts an edgier woman, one that has more character, along with more style. This collection proposes a contemporary and decisive interpretation of daywear, that enhanced with personal styling, is capable of transitioning from day to night. These are bold silhouettes with statement shoulders that emphasize a new twist to the Alberta Ferretti’s aesthetic.
«Through my designs, I wanted to highlight character affirmation. I imagined a confident and assertive woman. For this reason, I have decided to include my friend Lorenzo Quinn’s sculpture “Gravity” as a focal point of the runway, a masterpiece that places the woman at the center of the Universe, which for me, is a metaphor of reality,» declares Alberta Ferretti.
Dynamic but not tied to trends, the collection exudes confident ability in mixing textiles such as denim with feathers as well as adding flashes of gold light through fabrics, sculpted jewels or metallic belts. Daywear includes coats, skirts, and leather capes lined with wool or jersey and paired with black denim jumpsuits. Jackets are reinterpreted in jacquard fabrics.
The transition from daywear to evening wear is characterized by vibrant gold and silver sequins seen also on the T-shirts and skirts. Simple silhouettes and embellished details come together to create a goddess gown sprinkled in crystals. Her muses are seen in high heeled boots and sandals made from colored silk cords, enriched with small tassels.
A collection that paints Alberta Ferretti’s new woman; she is decisive, strong, and aesthetically impactful.
«I want to bring justice to women by respecting their natural elegance,» concludes Alberta Ferretti.

For the upcoming Spring Summer 2018 collection Alberta Ferretti looks back at her DNA of lightness with a new sensuality, creating a collection defined by ease and sophistication with unexpected moments.
“This season, I began looking at how I perceive my fashion by adopting a dynamic point of view. I embraced the past and present in one single shot, almost as if I was viewing it through the lens of a moving camera. During that process, I wanted to give my signature sense of lightness an added depth of sensuality, the surprise of the unexpected and the simplicity of a bright, luminescent attitude. This is how this quasi- sentimental collection that describes my current state of mine began. A moment of creative reflection, through which my aim was to pursue the renewal of my authenticity” declares Alberta Ferretti.
From this renewed perception of the Alberta Ferretti aesthetic, a new lightness is born. It becomes more affectionate towards the female body, originating from essential yet never minimal lines and also from lean silhouettes, often interrupted to create unexpected volumes, as seen on jersey gowns adorned with capes and low backs. A linearity that loves to be broken by geometric embroideries that imitate sequins or alternatively, an assortment of sequins used to create a dégradé effect to embellish and emphasise the length of the gowns. There’s a lightness that translates to pure sensuality through the bathing suits where black is replicated in graphic patterns defined by belts. Sheer chiffon gowns where the embroidery loses its decorative function and becomes the highlight of a luminous path that crosses over into pastel hue. Liquid lurex dresses that enhance fluidity.
A new Alberta Ferretti woman, born from a “new gaze”, a reflective, sensual and affectionate look on the need for modernity, with the urban attitude in which a gown is styled with a suede jacket or a lightweight silk and nylon parka. The flat leather sandals are easily replaced with lurex pumps. The collection features black, nude, beige and pastels; Alberta Ferretti’s palette of sensuality.

ALBERTA FERRETTI A DATE AT THE PALAZZO
Alberta Ferretti opens the doors of Palazzo Donizetti in Milan to welcome guests to an important date with her fashion. This three-part rendezvous develops an unusual formula for the fashion system: the rooms of the Palazzo will be the setting for a show featuring clothes from Alberta Ferretti’s Rainbow Week, the first capsule collection of ‘see-now-buy-now’ knitwear; the Alberta Ferretti Prefall 2017 collection; and the Alberta Ferretti Limited Edition collection.
“Accepting the invitation of Milan to open fashion spaces to the city, I decided to present a three-part show to the fast-paced fashion world that reveals my approach to fashion. With Rainbow Week I want to introduce the rapidity of the ‘see-now-buy-now’ concept in my world, while with the pre-collection I would like to reveal the methods of my creative process. With Limited Edition, I want to show the public what is behind the design of an exclusive garment and how it affects my interpretation of elegance, femininity, and exclusiveness,” said Alberta Ferretti.
Rainbow Week, the first capsule collection dedicated to Alberta Ferretti knitwear, will be immediately available online after the show on the websites www.albertaferretti.com, www.farfetch.com, and www.luisaviaroma.com and also sold through an exclusive selection of boutiques such as Harrods, Printemps, Saks Fifth Avenue, Selfridges and Apropos. The seven wool/cashmere sweaters – each in a different color and decorated with the name of the day of the week – are worn by seven different women, forming a rainbow of references to and sensations of our modernity. Roles are also interchangeable: the oversized Wednesday, Friday and Sunday sweaters can also be worn by men.
Fluid and romantic, luxurious but with an attitude that is perfect as elegant daywear, the Prefall 2017 collection reflects upon how and when to wear elaborate garments designed and made to express modern femininity. Embroidery, intarsia lace, prints, and dévoré and dérapé techniques appear on bias-cut velvet dresses, asymmetrical skirts, and long chiffon dresses printed with wrought iron motifs through which floral designs in subtle shades intertwine. These garments are worn with velvet and jacquard silk coats or raw-cut cloth coats with new silhouettes and volumes.
Aristo-cool is the sentiment blending glamour and lifestyle that inspires the Alberta Ferretti Limited Edition collection. Created as an alternative expression of Alberta Ferretti’s concept of exclusiveness and fine tailoring in womenswear, in this season the Limited Edition collection knowingly explores the everyday glamour of modern divas. Angora sweaters sparkling with crystals bare shoulders and are worn over long slinky bias-cut skirts. Lace patchwork is used to create mysterious dresses with sophisticated femme fatale elegance. Diamond pins and crystal brooches hold subtle draping in place. Sheer bodysuits have sleeves embroidered with jet beading, while black denim trousers create a stunning contrast with oversized sweaters. The collection, which comes in monochrome shades of white, black, red and gold, focuses on that special attitude and expresses a vibrant lifestyle and unique personality.
