As new creative director of Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, Natalie Ratabesi had only a month to pull together her first collection for the house. Rather than making a complete departure from Alberta Ferretti’s aesthetic, Ratabesi set out to give the brand a younger, cooler feel. The outcome was a pretty lineup of Twenties-inspired cocktail dresses worn under great coats. The Philosophy customer can be a party girl, so Ratabesi styled her looks from a night out into the next morning because, she said, “anything goes.” There were delicate beaded drop-waist dresses and flirty pleated skirts, at times with uneven hemlines; chic outerwear; cozy layered knits, and long dresses with a ruffled flounce.
