It was a dreamy Californian free spirit that Alberta Ferretti gave us for spring. His philosophy, where peace and love sat harmoniously in pretty pastel shades of chiffon gowns billowing in the breeze. Romantic and bohemian, albeit a little repetitive at times, the collection was a 70’s hippy dream dripping in suede fringing and crocheted moccasins.
Ferretti’s take on Grecian floor-length gowns were at the core, either decorated with appliquéd flowers, feathers or suede waistcoats with fringing to the floor. With long loose waves in their hair and a natural rosy complexion, the models oozed the simplistic beauty associated with the past, that we often strive to achieve in this modern world. Lace was constructed from embroidered flowers to form midriff exposing halter neck tops, whilst strips of copper fabric were woven into a trellis wrapped around the body, complete with vine like flowers. It was Ferretti’s attention to detail that lifted a beige collection into a desirable daze, soon to be sought after for the ultimate Coachella festival hippie vibe.
