If you’re looking for some color on the horizon, a hint that not all of fashion has gone over to the dark side, then the Philosophy di Alberta Feretti Fall 2011 show is right up your alley.

 

This show not only exhibited vibrant shades of every pastel, but also the more saturated and vibrant colors, such as fuschia, that are so strong right now. Also an excellent example of merchandising, in this presentation Ferretti gave the women watching no option but to buy each outfit in its entirety. Each model walked out in a coat that they then took off to reveal their calculated (to perfection) outfit underneath. 

 

To call this a retro-revival would be an understatment. These girls looked, from their makeup to shoes, straight from the 60′s and early 70′s. 

And I will take the liberty to say I am loving these coats and the delicate knit pieces underneath them.

 

Oh, and I could/should write an ode to fuzzy fashion this season begining with these colorful and fantastically fuzzy jackets. 

Last but not least is my favorite piece from the show, a soft but structed knit dress (below). 

What will you be wearing next fall?
