Known for her lavishly romantic goddess gowns, Alberta Ferretti is a master in the art of feminine draping. The daughter of a dressmaker, Ferretti began her career working for the Jean-Paul Gaultier and Moschino fashion houses. In 1981 she launched her eponymous collection as well as Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, a more youthful line. Her dresses' elegant flourishes and sumptuous fabrics have made the label a red-carpet favorite of fashion icons as Sarah Jessica Parker, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett, and Natalie Portman.
Ferretti’s a master of draping, in full evidence in this collection of jewel-toned dresses, tops, pencil skirts and coats. Silk chiffon and crepe are her materials of choice, but she also explores a wider palette, offering high-waisted wool trousers, cashmere cardigans and sateen jackets.
No matter your style, there is no passing by this treasure trove of designer ready-to-wear. For the purely demure set, rich suiting and extraordinary blouses can be found from both Valentino and Gianfranco Ferré. Fans of arty textures and sharp geometry will revel in the selections from Vivienne Tam, Yohji Yamamoto, Hanni Y and Issey Miyake. Smart, ever-so-preppy separates come from the likes of Brooks Brothers, Boy by Band of Outsiders and Malo. And, that's just the tip of the iceberg (yes, we have that brand, too!).
