Did someone forget to tell the team at Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti that these were the Fall collections? It would appear so, despite the abundance of outerwear. With shorts, minis, and day dresses aplenty, this season's collection, while playful, is untimely.
With a palette so saccharine and filled with pastels, the collection might even be too young for the tween stars that have captured the eye of the fashion world this red carpet season. The designer certainly didn’t subscribe to the moody theme that’s become a quick trend for the season as tartans, paisleys, and pastels ran rampant in a collection that is sure to please Mad Men enthusiasts and retro darlings alike.
Far from last season’s bold chinoiserie prints, this season’s Philosophy girl took a trip to the 60s to lunch with the ladies. Each model removed her jacket to reveal a coordinated look underneath that would not be out of place in the dead of summer, and while the collection as a whole may stand out amongst the rest this season, the trend of vivdly hued furs looks to be another of this season's standout trends.
