Philosophy by Natalie Ratabesi Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – New York Fashion Week

The Philosophy by Natalie Ratabesi spring/summer 2014 collection brought a fresh air of minimalism to New York Fashion Week, fashioning a brand new style for the Philosophy woman. The sister line of Alberta Ferretti was renamed last year, when Natalie Ratabesi was announced as the new creative director for it: consequently, we were all to expect changes in style, changes that never make us love this brand any less.

The Philosophy by Natalie Ratabesi spring/summer 2014 collection concentrates on masculine vibes, minimalism and femininity at the same time. There are elegant, sophisticated pieces for special occasions and pretty wearable looks for everyday wear. White is the main color of the entire line, but there are also pinches of sugary pinks and lime greens, as well as timeless grays. Prints? Forget them! Think all-things-monochrome and well polished!
The show at Philosophy by Natalie Ratabesi opened with a parade of urban looks featuring organza, ruffles, frills and delicate floral embroidery. There were lots of silk shorts, airy dresses and blouses, pajama-like robes, smart blazers, pants and shirts demonstrated. All these pieces are maximum versatile and can fit in with any type of wardrobe.
Then things got even more elegant and classier and the models came out wearing beautiful trench-coats, pleated flared pants, maxi dresses with crystal appliqués and romantic gowns with delicate ruffles used over here or there.

The looks at Philosophy by Natalie Ratabesi were accessorized to minimum too with some strange-looking sandals and clutches being the only options to choose from. Overall, the collection can be considered a success, since it managed to revive that charming nineties style that Philosophy got us hooked from the beginning!
