(NEW YORK) Alberta Ferretti
Alberta Ferretti is setting out to make the collarbone hot again. Between her two off-the shoulder looks (très chic, especially the chartreuse silk blouse with a pared-down, papery pencil skirt) and several sweet clavicle-baring frocks, the designer shows an array of styles and separates, all tied together by her detailed, feminine aesthetic. Naturally, a lovely goddess-y gown made an appearance to please Ferretti-philes, but what really looked fresh were the looks with a bit more structure, like a peachy sheath with an asymmetrical neckline and a line of ruching down the side.

Just Cavalli
Roberto Cavalli took a sexed-down approach to his resort collection, starting with a positively conservative ensemble of a boyfriend blazer, button-down, and his take on the harem pant. Bow-tied blouses and a sweet sundress soon gave way, however, to a more familiar Just Cavalli: a sexy, draped-sleeve zebra minidress. Still, the collection had an ease to it that may be owed to its resort timing; a one-sleeved zebra caftan and a black maxidress just trimmed in the animal print both barely skimmed the body, making it a perfect choice to take the Cavalli crowd from the beach to dinner.
