Alberta Ferretti Spring 2011

This afternoon the Alberta Feretti’s Spring 2011 presentation transported me to a meadow on a hazy sunny day.

Think the opening sequence on ‘Little House of the Prairie’ or the Timotei and Cadbury’s flake ads.

Models in gladiator flats walked the runway in a selection of summery pieces we could wear right now on a very hot day in Milan.

We’ve seen a lot of flats this season. It’s about time they came back into fashion.

The romantic collection presented us with chiffon ruffled dresses, floral maxi dresses, shorts, cool blazers and blouses with large embroidered sleeves.

There were many crochet pieces included bloomers, sweaters and bralets.

The neutral colour palette was warmed with some delicious caramel pieces, plus forest green and mustard yellow also featured.

Apart from the gladiator flats, the other key accessory was the wide brim straw hat.

The models sported tousled hair as if they had been rolling around in that meadow I was dreaming about.

Favourites: Mustard maxi dress over the crochet two-piece and anyone of the dreamy floral dresses

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Penelope Cruz, Diane Kruger, Christina Hendricks, Thandie Newton Ellen Pompeo, Anna Hathaway, Lea Michele, Michelle Yeoh and Jessica Biel

    Wow! Nothing like the Philosophy collection. It is such a beautiful collection. I was wishing for more red carpet gowns, but from what I have seen (the show has yet to be posted on style.com) it is a beautiful collection. I hope you enjoyed the show and the rest of Milan Fashion week! xx
