Simplicity and modernity, that was everything I could think while watching Alberta Ferretti’s runway. Clothes in dark hues between smoke and light that are the future uniform of the modern-day women
Italian designer Alberta Ferretti presented her collection for Fall Winter 2021 today at 7 am EST, the moment I saw the video I felt a lightning bolt of nostalgia. The setting was a clear reminder of what fashion shows were and I suddenly missed the fast rush of fashion month.
A classic runway that perfectly illuminated the looks while they walked down a runway of smoke. This season the designer has created a collection that thinks first on the person wearing the clothes and their functionality. But this does not mean that the visual impact and craftmanship of Alberta Ferretti was left behind.
A sea of black with just a pop of olive green, teal or mustard were the hues that impregnated the pieces that we saw today. The perfect canvas to create a beautiful collection with sequined dresses, tulle ruffles and silk-ribbon details that gave a deeper dimension to the simplicity of the clothes.
The charcoal grey turtleneck dress or the dark green shearling coat over the leather pants paired with a turtleneck were modern minimalism at its best. This collection is the perfect mix between femininity and sensuality, functionality, and design. We can wear a total look, but each piece by itself is perfect.
One of my favorites was the gold sequin pants paired with a classic black sweater, it is just the perfect amount of something extra. And I think this is the sum of what Alberta Ferretti was trying to showcase through the collection, everyday clothing but with a little extra.
In my opinion, each look was like if the women were getting ready for what the future may bring. Armored with layers of clothing; pleated skirts over tailored pants, shearling coats that felt like shields, or oversize capes that wrap perfectly the silhouette. Modern warriors ready for the battlefield of their daily battles in the concrete jungle.
I have already handpicked the pieces that will become part of my closet, like the military robin egg blue coat with green suede boots or the finale dress that even if it is black the textures created by the feathers and silver of the sleeves and skirt make it a showstopper. ç
