Alberta Ferretti and the Siren Song of Romanticism

by Olivia Moreau

Hyper-femininity is what drives Alberta Ferretti. She does not hold back when it comes to finding the poetry and romanticism in her work. Her couture (limited edition collection) has all the makings of a designer clear in her vision and expert in her execution. Her romanticism is not frivolous, it is driven by a certain charming efficiency. From more structured attire to more loose ethereal silhouettes, her work touch to holy grails of fashion... minimalism, and expansiveness.
