There were no major surprises at Alberta Ferretti, where frilly femininity is always in fashion.

Ferretti opened with a pleated tomato skirt, white shirt and double-breasted fitted blazer—a simple, sophisticated combination that could have been developed further. Instead, however, Ferretti quickly moved on to her signature sheer dresses, generously ruffled and gathered, some with ravaged ribbon trimmings or beaded detailing; an optical print made a brief appearance, only to recede into a sea of blush lingerie gowns.

Ferretti is known for her lyrical sense of style, but in this case, stricter pieces like her gold topstitched coat and straight trousers left a more lasting impression than the wispy dresses, which all seemed to merge into one.
