Daylight Robbery? Alberta Ferretti sheer silk chiffon dress

As a rule we’re fans of Alberta Ferretti. Her gowns are ethereal and resemble something Titania, Queen of the fairies might have worn in her fairy princess days. But we can’t help but wonder what went wrong here….

Because this looks like the lining to, well actually a fair few dresses we already own. We know that underwear as outerwear is hot just now, but this isn’t underwear, it’s un-finished wear. Incomplete. Without the dress part of the dress.

But, maybe you like it. We’ve been increasingly exposed to exposed seams over recent years, maybe this is just the next step.

If unfinished garments are your thing, you can buy this one from for £1,040. Which won’t leave an awful lot of change to buy the outer dress with…

    Oh – adding an extra tie-string turns it from underwear into a dress does it?

    uhm…wear that nighty/lining thingy in public? no thanks! and she’s basically selling something worth $10 for 1000. whoever buys this should seriously reconsider their priorities! YOU COULD MAE ONE YOURSELF! my 5 year old niece could put that together! what a shame.

    I still love Alberta Ferretti and believe it must have been a dare or something…or a bad day…or maybe feretti just wanted to see if anyone would buy something so depressing as that, just because of the label, or if anyone had taste in clothing that bad…

    For day wear? No thanks >.<
    It would make lovely nightwear, but still, £1,040 for a night gown?
