Milan Fashion Week: Alberta Ferretti's ladies of the canyon

September 22, 2010 | 10:58 am


Alberta Ferretti offered a pretty collection for spring, full of the kind of nature motifs we saw in New York from Michael Kors and Rodarte, among others.

Except that Ferretti's take was more of a romantic fairytale, with sheer chiffon layers in fern, flower and bird prints bringing to mind a magic garden, worn by models with loose wavy hair, fraying, floppy straw hats and gladiator sandals with leafy cutouts and rope ties.

Soft jackets and shorts came in a nubby, natural-colored linen, and blouses and dresses were pieced together from bits of cream chiffon, lace and macrame for a boho, 1970s ladies-of-the-canyon vibe.
