About the designer

Established in the early 1980s by Alberta Ferretti, the brand was named Philosophy and embodied ultra-feminine silhouettes. Still operating as Alberta Ferretti's sister company, it's been under the creative direction of Lorenzo Serafini since 2014. The designer is personally intrigued by all aspects of the female attitudes which epitomize the brand's dreamy mood. Serafini finds his inspiration in reflections of the past, he says, alongside today's reality. Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini sets out the perfect blend between its romantic DNA and the showcase of Serafini's own aesthetic.

Collection autumn/winter 2017

Lorenzo Serafini’s unstudied femininity has been a sure-fire success from the start. This autumn/winter season, the Italian designer glammed up his usual Brooke Shields references with feline prints and rhinestone detailing. Evoking a Fifties silhouette with cinched-in waists, this collection certainly veered more toward Elizabeth Taylor’s diva style, with plissé, tulle, bows, ruffles and fur playing major roles. But don't mistake Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini to be a straightforward retro brand. Planted firmly in the present, Serafini knows how to create timeless showstoppers in a supremely comfortable way, so that these attainable silhouettes will be go-to's this season for those members of the younger generation who love a classically-inspired frock.
