Alberta Ferretti and the Call of the Evolved Couture

by Sylvia Mathews

Alberta Ferretti built her empire on the foundation of light and flowy couture. From flexible silhouettes to shinny silk, her work has remained consistent and consistently good. So she would be in no hurry to change things up. But as it is with artists they rarely follow the safest route. And this Haute Couture collection is Alberta’s plunge into the unknown…into the structured silhouettes and more minimalist expressions of joy. All the other things that make her work standout still remain intact making this a collection worth savoring. Evolution always is.
