The 4 words – Kiss of the Orient – came to mind when I was viewing Philosophy’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection. I have followed Alberta Ferrati’s designs for a while and I don’t recall her being so bright and loud!

One thing for sure, the Oriental style is making waves globally again!

Although I’m not quite sure about the Asian conical boat hats, the mandarin collars and reinvented cheongsams are lovely and perfect for Spring!

The sexy halter short dress might be good as a tunic top too!

Lovely silk pieces. Yellow used to be a color for the Chinese emperors only.

More lovely Mandarin silk dresses. Note the dragon motif.

What are your thoughts on this collection?
