Alberta Ferretti Spring 2014 Ready To Wear

According to Ferretti, this collection is about color and youthfulness, inspired by a mix of Southern Italian and South American influences. The WWD article I read accuses Ferretti of overdoing it, showing a total lack of restraint in the use of color and pattern, such as this example of a white crop top with floral embellishments paired with a floor-length skirt sporting thick, punch-you-in-the-face-bright stripes. I have to say, I do not see the problem here. Only one or two dresses in the entire collection are all over stripes. The majority of the collection tastefully breaks up the stripes with plain white so it never seems too overpowering. A zoot suit in that fabric is overdoing it it - a selection of fun skirts and a couple short flirty dresses, not so much.
