Milan Fashion Week: Gucci and Alberta Ferretti

Gucci and Alberta Ferretti got Milan Fashion Week off with a bang yesterday offering two very different collections.

A warm palette of sunset orange and yellow combined with palm prints at Alberta Ferretti in a collection that had clear African influences. Sheer panels and splices of see through fabric united the collection with tribal tattoos replicated in chiffon layered on to tulle. Ferretti best known for his evening dresses, presented romantic maxi and to the knee styles with delicate chiffon sleeves.

In contrast Gucci’s collection was very dark, with a collection that centred on black, white and bronze with highlights of emerald green and tangerine. The collection had a distinct androgynous feel with boxy jackets and 1920s drop waist dresses with flapper-esque fringing. Art Deco influences were clear with geometric patterns on printed and embroidered jackets.

Milan Fashion Week continues today with Fendi, D&G and Max Mara.
