The talk of the night was the great masterpiece presented in the center of Alberta Ferretti’s runway show. Named “Gravity”, an aluminium sculpture crafted by Lorenzo Quinn, son of the great actor Anthony Quinn. It is a large geometric structure representing the metaphor of reality that places the woman in the center of the universe.

 

“The woman is at the center of the universe. She is the force of force of attraction of everything. It is the duty of the man to support and encourage her. I believe that my sculpture has a lot in common with the fashion and clothes of Alberta Ferretti, who has always described the idea of a woman who is aware of her position and strength,” declares Lorenzo Quinn.

 

Debuted at the Rotonda della Besana, for fall Ferretti presented a highly elegant collection that was full of sensuality and confidence. First there was plenty of velvet galore in vibrant colours, infusing her signature romantic touch she displayed a mix of modern piece with eccentricity. Including pretty fabulous sleeveless cape coat in brick orange, an all-in-black scully western studded jumpsuit accessorised with a silk scarf around the neck and knee-high suede boots, and a turtleneck intarsia sweater styled with a leather button-up midi-skirt.

 

Everything we saw can easily be coordinated with your favourite pair of denims for day look or dressed up with a lush coat or skirt for nighttime. There was also a vast variety of accessories- from cowboy hats to chunky necklaces, gold metallic belts, elbow-length leather gloves in eye-popping colours and a number of velvet knee-high boots.

 

The Italian designer is famous for sensing what women of today’s time want, especially out of evening gowns. The second half of the show models came out in sumptuous and ethereal fabrics like jacquard, light chiffon, gold dusted velvet and glittering embellishments.

 

Ferretti’s message was clear all throughout, where the full collection coincides with her vision of the modern, strong and confident woman, is the focal point of every of style, elegance and charm.
