At Alberta Ferretti S/S 2011 Show today the atmosphere - both visual and aural - was like in a garden of Eden. Models were dressed in ethereal dresses of flora pattern silk. A soft silk voile wraped their bodies. Romanic colour palette: pale acqua green, tender ecru.When I saw these gowns some of paintings i love the most come to my mind. Resemblances and redundancies are undeniable and clearly evident.
From above: Botticelli "La Primavera" 1482, Evelyn De Morgan "Flora" 1894, William Waterhouse "Gather ye Rosebuds while ye may" 1909.
