“For this capsule collection I chose upholstery fabrics, which always have been the focus of my work,” said Marta Ferri, adding that the textiles feature an Alpine-Tyrolean background, in line with the Christmas theme characterizing the entire collection. “Depending on the positioning of the fabric, the shoe fantasy changes, it’s fun to find various miniature of skis and chalets on every model,” she added.
