Alberta Ferretti Spring 2013

Alberta Ferretti’s Spring 2013 show started with a mood video of crashing waves before the first model took to the runway with wet-looking hair, wearing an ivory-fringed long-sleeve dress with a light chiffon underlay.

It quickly became clear that Ms Ferretti had created a beautiful underwater world where she entranced us with more beautiful ivory beaded and fringed dresses. We then dived deeper into the collection were she unearthed some ocean-blue and marine-green delights including high-shine liquid gowns which looked like a mermaid had just emerged from the sea.

The highlights included a succession of stunning gowns draped with fishnet-like overlays shimmering with paillette embellishments, which looked like water drops, chiffon tops with trains fluttering down the runway plus dresses with intricate embroidered details that, on closer inspection, resembled sea anemones and coral reefs.

Among the red-carpet-worthy gowns we saw shorts, Chantilly lace-embroidered tops, cropped pants, blazers and a beautiful coat.

Key accessories included beautiful beaded drawstring bags, Alexis Bittar jewels and silk ankle-strap slingback heels.

    This is a stunning collection, and because it is so delicate I can imagine tht it was even more stunning in person. The photo of the chiffon train on your twitter is stunning! Hopefully we’ll see some Ferretti emmy’s, Cobie Smulder’s gown last year was easily in my top 3. I could also see Amber heard in some of the looks.
    Also, love the shout to to Ariel from the Little Mermaid, she would rock this collection like no other!

    I’m crazy about looks 35, 37 and 40. Very very gorgeous dresses. Hope we can get to see a celebrity wearing them soon.
