74160165.jpgI'm starting to really love Haute Resort season, following Dior's 'a nod to retro glam' show, it was Alberta Ferretti's turn next which took an entirely different approach to vacation dressing. Think typically pretty feminine clothing with a dash of preppy, nautical wear and you're right on the money with this collection. Ferretti's practical yet stylish collection featured basics such as pleated skirts and shorts, shirt dresses and straight-necked tops. Then for something a little more interesting she added floaty cocktail frocks in her favourite fabric chiffon incorporating drop waists, thin belts, satin heels and a floor-sweeping gown with Grecian elements. If I had loads of money and if I happened to own a cruise boat I'm sure I could see myself sat back on a deck chair in one of Ferretti's latest creations. I wish!
