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 spring/summer 2018

Lorenzo Serafini’s ongoing infatuation with the female spirit shone through in the label’s spring/summer 2018 line-up. This season, the designer dressed his models in nautical shades, with red, blue and white accentuating the opening looks. A tomboyish vibe was contrasted by ruffle detailing, keeping things dreamy as ever. A white dress, elevated by a V-shaped neckline and pleated ruffles, instantly became a crowd-pleaser, while lengths varied and belted waists remained consistent. Leaving the colour white by the wayside, the Italian designer opted for brighter shades and knotted waists. A handkerchief silhouette in red and blue stripes danced along the runway, evoking a vibrant elegance. Graphic floral prints made a pit-stop as a springtime success before toughened-up ensembles in black, leather and lace had a moment of their own. Just minutes before the presentation came to a close, tonal bodysuits and minidresses bared lengthy legs. One dress in particular - a soft mint number, complete with pleated cape and embellished shoulder - struck us as a fitting piece to give the collection its final punch.
