Alberta Ferretti has taken to thematic binges for her Philosophy collection lately. For spring, it was Asia. This time, she indulged in Sixties kitsch of the “Belle du Jour” camp. Everything was doused in Easter-egg pastels and came as a matchy-matchy set. Each model, styled with a bouffant ponytail and sheer stockings with seams down the back, walked out with a coat on — mini A-lines or a trapeze in fur and mohair — which came off on the return, revealing either a little shift, a bell dress or cropped pants with a matching top. Such a retro look was clearly the intention, but if anything was current, it was the dresses more than the coats. Both were sugary sweet and best suited for someone young.
