Skittles®

Alberta Ferretti Resort 15

Maya Singer wrote, on STYLE.com, that the Alberta Ferretti Resort 2015 Collection, who references Mark Rothko’s color-block paintings, « looks like a bowl of Skittles®, if Skittles® had a sort of late ’60s / early ’70s thing going on, and boasted painterly jacquards and sequins ».

To read about other Mark Rothko-inspired collections, search for the « Mark Rothko » post that I have published on March 21, 2012.
