Alberta Ferretti at the fall-winter 2012 women's shows in Milan

Alberta Ferretti presented a sumptuous collection for the fall-winter 2012-2013 women's fashion shows, with a restricted colour palette - black, white, grey, and a lovely violet hue - but loads of intricate material effects based on sheer, semi-transparent voile, leather, fur, and attached ornaments. The effect was like Trinity (Matrix) in Valentino, with stunning strapless dresses, tightly-honed geometrical curves, and a sort of 1930s look with hints of Tamara de Lempicka. Confident and self-assured women who can carry all they need in beautifully textured clutches with short straps.
