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.
Known for her romantic, lavish gowns, it’s no surprise that Alberta Ferretti’s designs have been a red-carpet favorite for style icons like Sarah Jessica Parker and Natalie Portman. Re-energize your wardrobe with this A-list selection, from silk drop-waist dresses and printed silk skirts to feminine tailored pants and jackets.
The whimsy of Cheap & Chic and the transcendence of Philosophy. Where to start? Take the gray coat bordered by playful purple appliqués or the buttoned-up blazer with splashes of colored paillettes. Then scoop up these two stunning dresses: one in olive netting encrusted with mocha sequins, and the other in red velvet with a peek of black lace.
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!).
Cashmere capes, clingy sweatshirt dresses, cropped cable knits—just about every on-trend sweater is among this array. Top a crew-neck with one of the edgy, open-stitch cardigans or let a thigh-skimming poncho do its thing, with just leggings and a pair of heels.
