Alberta Ferretti Takes Inspiration From the Bird

Peacock feathers on a strapless evening gown. Birds embellishing a Cherry red sweater. A mural of birds in their natural habitat give any separte a Classic, yet sensual feel. Alberta Ferretti takes inspiration from none other than the bird. An inspiration that many designers had taken from during the Spring and Pre-Fall seasons, Ferretti gives this Springlike inspiration, more of a Fall twist. As the key hues of the collection were: a rich brown, olive, oxblood, pumpkin, cream, and the colors of the feather of a Peacock. While the Elegant fabric of tweed, gave the collection a that perfect feel of warmth, no fur nesscessary. In my opinion, the red tweed trench would perfectly give any Fall/Winter wardrobe a pop of color, outerwear wise, while any of the sheer lace gowns would make great for a sexy Spring feel, when suffering from Spring fever, and the feathered strapless dresses would leave everybody with their jaws on the ground, at any formal affair.

A Candy Coated Gucci Fall 2014

Ever since Pre-Fall 2014, Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini, has been a more simple route with her collections, leaving just as much a memorable statement as Marc Jacobs’ last Louis Vuitton show back in March. Kicking off Milan Fashion Week, every single a-list model that didn’t seem to make an appearance at New York Fashion Week, (think on the list of: Sigrid Agren, Anja Rubik, Kasia Struss, and Daria Strokous), stormed down the white-out Gucci catwalk, in a candy coated ensemble, and Equestrian boots in a light brown neutral, or Snakeskinned. As trenchcoats and outerwear seem to be the big thing at New York and London Fashion Weeks, they also seemed to make camo at Gucci, in militaristic inspired silohouettes and of course, fur. While outerwear, animal prints, and pastels may seem to be the big thing at Gucci, for the evening wear, Giannini sends out an array of leather cocktail dresses, plastered in silver, metallic chains. Definately the perfect collection for some Simplicity and Classic staples, with a bit of that bold, edgy twist; Purely Chic. A very Mod feel, overall.
