This was a tough decision. I fell hard for the romantic flowers and ribbons at Alberta Ferretti, but ultimately it's very traditional. The gauzy geometry that came down the runway at Fendi screamed SPRING while being completely unexpected. (Ah, spring, you sound so lovely yet distant now that a storm has blown in winter's brisk air.) Normally, I'm not one for patchwork, but the sheer patches shift and glow like stained glass.
Even the more polished, professional pieces are playful.
