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.
Meet the new romantic! A marriage of traditionally feminine and tough details give this crop of dresses, separates and accessories a distinctly modern appeal. Bows, lace and rosettes adorn dangerously high stilettos; drapey silk chiffon tops are less romantic thanks to dangling chain links; and a ruffled silk dress feels more punk than girly when rendered in eye-popping fluorescent pink. There is plenty to fall in love with.
