Milan Fashion Week: Gucci and Alberta Ferretti

Milan Fashion Week kicked off on Wednesday with an abundance of colour from Gucci and 1960s prints from Alberta Ferretti.


Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini autumn 11 collection moved on from the bright colour blocking seen on its spring 11 catwalk with bold jewelled shades.

Daywear from the label saw fur stoles in bright colours and fox jackets worn with trilby hats and culottes. Other outfits included pussybow blouses underneath tailored grey suit jackets with pinstriped trousers.

The evening attire was sultry and glamorous with billowing chiffon gowns in emerald greens, ruby reds and sapphire blues which hung from the neck and were split to the hips with coloured hot pants underneath and silk roses piled around the neck.

Alberta Ferretti

Alberta Ferretti too opted for a colourful autumn collection with a colour blocked outfits made up from a colour palette of teal green, orange and aubergine. The collection had a 60s feel with pieces including brightly coloured shift dresses, printed coats and slim fit trousers.

Thigh high velvet thigh boots were worn with most outfits adding texture to the outfits. The end of the show veered slightly away from the Modish look with lacy frocks and Baroque embellishments on chiffon gowns.
