A striking palette, delivered with Alberta Ferretti's feminine touch, makes for a Fall 2013 collection that's both a little punchy, and at its core, absolutely lovely. Ferretti's signature handiwork is all at play here — the intricacies that make her gowns truly about the details — like the sheer, embellished bodices, beaded waists and necklines, and ruffled hemlines. There are a few sharper looks in the mix — black-and-white paneled gowns that feel more modern than the rest — ones we hope to see on the likes of British beauty Michelle Dockery; but mostly the lineup hints more at vintage-feeling glamour, with evening gowns better-suited for her Downton Abbey alter ego.
