Always feminine and always sensual, Alberta Ferretti gave us the woman draped in a silk tie? I was reading comments on this and it all made sense. I could sense from the show(youtube obviously) that the fabric was a silk, but it wasn’t as lightweight as it usually is. That was the menswear influence.
But that’s as manly as it got. The collection was at ease in The Plaza’s Oak Room and it contrasted against the clothes in a really awesome way. Imagine an italian bombshell of the 50’s or 60’s just walking in fresh off a flight from Rome and turning heads. If only they had cigars to show the men who really wears the pants-or shall I say, the “tie” around here.
