Close up: The maritime theme by Alberta Ferretti

Alberta Ferretti owns a Russian icebreaker turned private yacht she calls Prometheus. She probably has a long summer holiday to look forward to on its decks. The maritime theme she explored in her new collection is a familiar, even obvious, one during the Resort season, but it’s close to Ferretti’s heart and she handled it elegantly.

Close up: Reem Acra FW18 pre fall

“As a designer, I decided that it’s time to show who I really am,” commented Acra. “There are a lot of [fashion] messages out there, but really I have no time to be someone else. I am truly grateful for the road I have taken. So my message is: Be yourself, and yes you can.”

The designer: If you're not already following the 26 year-old designer (and former race car driver!) on Instagram—his feed regularly serves up some of the best ball gowns in the business, each of which is handcrafted in his atelier in Makati, Phillipines—you should be. This season it’s about: Black Tie that makes a statement, be it a gorgeous hue of pink (the season’s It color) a full ball skirt or a full-sleeved embroidered jumpsuit.
