The new Philosophy fall 2013 collection is filled with modern pieces oozing a particular femininity and romanticism. Natalie Ratabesi’s offer for the upcoming cold-weather season included appropriate pieces in order to keep you both warm and stylish. Still, cozy chunky knits seem to remain essential items in our wardrobes. There were Mongolian ski sweaters and some cool hand knits that guarantee to add a comfy and effortlessly chic touch to your wardrobe.
After her pre-fall debut collection for Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, it was time for young designer Natalie Ratabesi to reveal her designs for Ferretti’s younger line at New York Fashion Week. Ratabesi, who graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2000, presented her first runway collection for fall 2013 featuring relaxed and feminine goodies. “I thought about the Fifties, and a beautiful woman walking and down Avenue Montaigne,” the designer explained.
Besides an array of winter must-haves such as loose sweaters and wool coats, the Philosophy fall 2013 collection also includes some sophisticated and cute pieces that can give a romantic and elegant flare to a girl’s dressing. So, there are sheer blouses, ikat-printed pencil skirts, printed peplum tops, cropped ankle-length pants, and dresses. Some of the outfits got a ’60s feeling being teamed with bright knee socks and deliciously-colored high-heeled shoes.
Now, this is one uber-cool collection that can see us through awfully chilly days in style! There is a go-with-everything color palette featuring black, white and red as well as some really eye-catching prints and charming details. The romantic side of the Philosophy fall 2013 collection is emphasized by the models hairstyles. Ah, those fishtail braids woven and twisted together in a low chignon are achingly adorable and feminine. Have a look and get inspired!
