Summer is still with us here in Malta and Gozo, with temperatures as high as 27 degrees Celsius, and people are still seeking the beaches as the sea temperature is 25 degrees Celsius, with a UV index of 5 or 6. Most of us are looking forward for autumn and winter to kick start, to start wear our winter wear. But we have still weeks ahead of good sunny weather.
Yesterday I was tuned on Fashion TV and I happened to watch the Italian fashion designer one of my favourites. Alberta Ferretti Spring Summer 2014 collection is folkloric evoking Spanish, Peruvian and Southern Italian style, with femininity. The colours are very bold for Spring time with lively reds to oranges, apple green as well as a heavy presence of black and white. We have seen florals this season, but Ferretti includes bold stripes into the mix with horizontal and vertical arrangements. The dresses feature ruffles, floral prints and lots of lace and tulle.
Dresses are the real stars of Ferretti’s collection with some look consists of tops and skirts. The dresses are short, sleeveless long dresses with flowery decorations. The dresses play transparency with lace and tulle, very lively and elegant paisley prints and flowers. The evening dresses collection are very refined, in soft fabrics and with long working fluid skirt or sophisticated, with transparent straps and lace adorning the bustier or strapless.
The clothes come with top puffed sleeves, mesh transparent, top wear with applied flowers, colourful, long and short skirts with flounces in plain or stripped print. I have to admit that it is much different from any other collection that we have reported on. But I like it very much, looking back there is not one single outfit that I would not wear.
