Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini Fall 2016 RTW Line Is About the Power of Romance

A fairy tale of incredible fashion, the girls came down the stairs in their outfits, gowns and dresses and pieces to behold that ensured you understood the power of beauty. Yes, the Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini fall/winter 2016-2017 collection surely made the Milan Fashion Week runway all the lovelier with its creations today. Starring things off was a red cropped pants with lacy blouse combination, black ribbon for a belt and ruffles down the chest, looking more like she was ready to embark on a journey by sea than anything else.

“I thought about the amount of willpower you need to maintain a gentle approach to life and I believe it takes courage to be romantic these days,” said Lorenzo Serafini and his collections always do contain a high dose of romantic allure we all need in the modern world.

Fur coats came into play, along with sheer dresses in powder blue, shiny black skirts a favorite, while there was still some showing off of what is underneath that blouse as ladies took to the stage without coverage underneath the transparency of some of the looks. Leather dresses with black lace sleeves and necks were pretty interesting unto themselves, paired with sheer black pantyhose and thick gothic half boots. That particular look was pretty short, along with some of the other sheered designs.

Trends that appeared throughout included a whole lot of transparency, lots of frills and ribbons, long skirts and red pants, plunging necklines and loose hair. Black and white combination has been big since 2015 as it is, making the long lace fringed dress with the round neckline one of our very favorites from the line-up, the sheer translucence appealing to the senses as the skirts sway around the legs. We find ourselves enjoying the black leather looks and the high turtlenecks in lace, the pronounced shoulders to the coatdresses and the half boots seen throughout.

We see ribbons on the necks, pearly buttons down the chest, accentuated waists with strategic faux belt placements and some modernized Victorian looks that include sheer blouses with billowing material, lace pants and knee-length boots, stiletto heels and all, sometimes lined with fur. There are even some that are over the knee and nearer to mid-thigh. Flouncy skirts and dresses, though, more than make up for any mistakes made throughout, instead allowing the customer to fall in love with Philosophy all over again.

Founded in 1984, the Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini brand has grown ever since, including some major trends in its gorgeous collections, proving Lorenzo Serafini is good enough to handle the label created by Alberta Ferretti under the Aeffe Group as pret a porter. His works first appeared on stage last year this time, taking the fashion community by storm.

We can easily say that the Philosophy fall 2016 RTW collection is Serafini’s best to date and that the Milan Fashion Week is just the right venue to grow from. Capelets are huge for 2016 it appears, as well as lace pants, making Lorenzo a genius in being able to tell what to include when as he works. It is a stellar collection and we look forward to picking up a dress or two or three soon enough.
