Since the dawn of social media, what supermodels, particularly the likes of Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, wore off the runway became a point of fascination for many fashion fans. What were the pieces to wear to look as sexy and stunning as these runway superstars? Alberta Ferretti had some interesting answers during her Spring 2019 show in Milan. Recently, this well-established Italian couturier had been exploring the territories of street-smart separates and day-wear, as opposed to her signature style of red carpet dressing. Her delicacy of touch was still there on offer, but instead of sparkling cocktail dresses and couture-like evening gowns, they were present on cotton tops paired with slouchy jeans, denim jackets, and silky slips for daytime. The result was mind-blowingly feminine, and romantic, yet easy to wear and lighter than what she has done in the past. It looks like the streetwear trend is attempting to get another established designer into the mix, but Alberta Ferretti is determined to do it her way.
