The romanticism is clear to see with every Alberta Ferretti piece. Born and raised in Italy to a dressmaker mother, the designer credits her upbringing to the launch of her eponymous label in 1974, saying of career choice: “I was born into it, maybe even born with it in my blood.” And the passion is clear to see season after season with the designer’s utterly feminine, delicate collections. Translate some of that otherworld charm into everyday with an expertly-crafted leather tote or subtle statement clutch, carrying it next to a simple white dress to make the colour pop.
