THE LADY AND THE INGÉNUE
New York: Although Alberta Ferretti’s Pre-Fall collection included all the luxurious details and elegance expected from the Philosophy label, the presentation never settled on a target customer, swinging between mature overcoats and restrained skirts suits and more youthful counterparts, metallic silk cocktail dresses and babydoll silhouettes. This lack of cohesion detracted from all the sumptuous textures and high-end embellishment; crocodile embossed leathers, beaded floral appliqué, featherweight metallic chiffon. Broken apart, the collection held some standalone gems; a pleated, silver skirt printed with flowers, an embossed emerald knit dress, but as a whole Philosophy’s Pre-Fall message was unclear.—Nina Stotler
