Fall Faves : Alberta Ferretti

I loved every single piece here. Ferretti delivered piece after piece of lovely girly seperates and dresses with parallels to other collections like Prada (headbands) and Chloe (chiffon dresses). However, her signature style was stamped on each one of them, with the girly-ness and classic cuts.

Ribbons, bows and corsages adorned his dresses and coats, and dresses were made of lovely flowy chiffon. For day, the metallic skirts, dolly coats and romantic blouses were absolutely wearable and charming. And for evening, her collection of gowns were simple and elegant, with shades of black, bronze and greys.

My favourite piece was the maroon day chiffon dress above. I loved everything from the black lacy necklike, the girly addition of the bow, the light chiffon material, the layering of the materials ,right down to the little black layer peeking down at the hemline. With purple, bows, black lace and that Victorian touch, this dress pretty much encapsulates what Fall is all about. Such a must-have.
