Alberta Ferretti presented their new Limited Edition Fall/Winter 2016 collection last week in Paris. Italian heiress Marchesa Luisa Casati, well known for her eccentricities in early 20th-century Europe served as a muse for this Limited Edition Fall collection.
“What I like about La Marchesa was her untamable free spirit and modern allure,” said Ferretti. “She lived in Venice, whose atmosphere suited her mysterious charm.” – Alberta Ferretti
The beautiful and extravagant femme fatale dominated and delighted European society for nearly three decades. She astonished society by parading with a pair of leashed cheetahs and wearing live snakes as jewellery, something that Ferretti borrowed on for the collection’s video presentation. Filmed by photographers Luigi & Iango, the video shows model Malgosia Bela roaming around a Venetian palazzo.
