Alberta Ferretti looked to today’s career-driven youth for inspiration. “They pay more attention to their future,” the designer explained postshow. The result was a strong collection of polished, professional clothes, layered with feminine, modern touches. Ferretti opened with a crisp white power suit cinched at the waist — the most direct nod to her theme — but the look quickly evolved with formfitting white dresses in a slightly stricter silhouette. She also had some fabulous coats, including a chic, tailored camel one with gradations of color at the torso. That, along with several other pieces, were perfectly suited for a boardroom meeting. But it can’t be all work and no play, and Ferretti knows it. So her lineup also had some high-glamour moments, featuring several metallic and PVC dresses that looked to the future indeed.
