Alberta Ferretti's Fall 2014 Collection at Milan Fashion Week is Rustic Chic

When Fashion Week comes around each year, there are collections we always look forward to because their designers never fail to create exquisite, edgy designs. And Alberta Ferretti's Fall 2014 collection is one of them. Earth tones and natural elements were at play on Ferretti's latest runway, which looked like a collision between Scottish highland style and modern royalty. In other words, Ferretti played out a forest fairytale with a gilded touch for Fall 2014. And from the designer who unfailingly encapsulates modern feminine style each season, we would expect nothing less. Forget Reign; we'll live out our own monarchical fantasy wearing Ferretti's deconstructed, regal ensembles.
