The masculine inspired Oak Room at The Plaza Hotel was the ideal place for Alberta Ferretti to demonstrate her signature feminine and elegant style during New York Fashion Week. The choice of the hotel was intentional, as it perfectly evoked the idea of mix and matching boyish pieces with ladylike ones, showing the art of looking feminine while borrowing from boys. The show was opened with a red and light blue midriff-baring bustier top matched with a high-waist pencil skirt and this was just the start of an array of figure-enhancing spaghetti-strap dresses and skirts. Actually, there was nothing masculine about the Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti spring/summer 2013 collection, but only form-fitting ladies dresses and bra tops were showcased that instantly pictured the image of a Sicilian beauty.
Dots and stripes were perfectly combined throughout the Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti spring 2013 collection, even better accentuating women’s curves. There were also floral embroidery touches used that solely appeared on strapless body-hugging dresses and bustier tops or were matched with stripes and mannish unbuttoned shirts worn over a bra.
The same figure-enhancing and midriff-revealing theme continued throughout the collection with only the color scheme changing. The models showed a line of reds, lilacs, powder blues and dark nudes. Some designs featured shimmering metallic embroidery, while others were covered with floral prints, stripes and dots. No wonder, the Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti spring/summer 2013 collection is one of the most ladylike and sexiest lines of the season to come!
