Recent Ethereal Silk Chiffon & Net Alberta Ferretti Dress

Alberta Ferretti has really been producing amazing pieces the last few collections and this is a wonderful example of that. This feather light, supermodel long gown that is made entirely out of the lightest, finest silk chiffon and net is absolutely ethereal while still being a strong design statement. A band of long tube beads with crystal rhinestones detail the waist band and are set on both the front and at the back. Long raw edges strips of both silk net and silk chiffon trail down from shoulders and more crystal rhinestones, this time in black, circle the upper edge of the black portion of the hem. The top is constructed like a halter with a deep plunge between that goes right to the waist. Here the nude silk is covered with black net and it is the bet only that wraps over the shoulders and down tot he back. The back is otherwise left completely bare. The skirt is the opposite with a cream silk over black and it is all finely pleated. The effect of the nude silk over the black adds a beautiful dimension to the piece. The silk is very light but the  rhinestones that circle the skirt as mentioned above give it the weight needed to fall properly. The overall effect is that of a Grecian goddess and the piece is extraordinarily beautiful. Excellent condition
