Alberta Ferretti‘s Fall/Winter 2024 collection, unveiled at Milan Fashion Week, offered a captivating blend of the ethereal and the pragmatic. While the designer’s reputation is built on romantic chiffons and evening gowns, this season showcased a versatility that extends far beyond the realm of special occasions.

Alberta Ferretti herself described the collection as a “mix of masculine and feminine,” a theme evident from the very first look. A flowing black lace and gray flannel slip dress opened the show, its maxi length echoing a key trend of the season. This juxtaposition of traditionally masculine elements like charcoal pinstripes and salt-and-pepper tweed with feminine flourishes like ruffles and beading set the tone for the collection. The inclusion of pieces adorned with metallic discs further blurred the lines between day and evening wear, reflecting a contemporary approach to dressing.

Embracing the warmth of the season, Ferretti incorporated rich autumnal tones like pumpkin, mustard, and puce into her designs. These pops of color enlivened pantsuits and chunky knitwear, offering a refreshing take on fall staples. A chartreuse bias-cut slip dress veiled in black net added a touch of unexpected vibrancy, showcasing the designer’s playful use of color and texture.

Eveningwear remained a highlight, with a stunning off-the-shoulder black net gown embroidered with silver sequins stealing the show. This piece, accentuating an hourglass silhouette, exemplified Ferretti’s expertise in crafting red carpet-worthy attire.

Beyond the undeniable allure of the gowns, Ferretti’s pragmatic side shone through in the collection’s selection of beautifully tailored tweed pantsuits and sophisticated coats. These versatile pieces cater to the modern woman who desires both style and practicality.

While Ferretti played with the contrast between masculine and feminine elements, she emphasized the importance of individual interpretation. “I wish to see my customers reinterpret and coordinate the looks as they wish,” she stated. This approach empowers women to express their unique personalities through fashion, whether by pairing an embellished skirt with a shearling biker jacket or opting for a classic tailored ensemble.

Alberta Ferretti’s signature touch of embellishment was present throughout the collection, with sequins, metallic details, and flounces adding a touch of whimsy without overwhelming the garments. The collection ultimately solidified Ferretti’s position as a designer who caters to both the romantic and the pragmatic woman, offering a versatile and elegant wardrobe for all occasions.
