    It doesn’t look “resort” to me, but that belted coat is FAB. Also love the dresses in pics 1 and 3.

    • lexilexi

      Couldn’t agree more. Resort?

    • kimmeister

      The coat is fab indeed, but why did they pair it with suntan colored hosiery???

      • sugarkane105

        Because nothing says resort like hosiery!

        • DuBey2

          Point.

    • Constant Reader

      Maybe by “resort” they mean “things for retirees to wear in Florida”? That floral belted outfit with the embellished old lady sandals just screams “beach pajamas” to me.

      • DuBey2

        As a future “retiree in Florida”, I’m insulted by your opinion of my taste. 🙂

        • Constant Reader

          LOL! I’m sure you’ll be the most fabulously dressed retiree in The Villages!

          I don’t actually hate most of this — I just think most of it is more appropriate for Beall’s than for a designer line where each piece costs several hundred dollars.

          • DuBey2

            Oh, Beall’s, ack ack, excuse me: furball.

    • marlie

      #1 and # are my favorites too. They’re SO pretty.

    • Kristin McNamara

      I doesn’t look resort to me so much as “tissue box”. Over half of these, I can envision perfectly as the design on the outside of a tissue box….

    • Raspberry2012

      Most of it looks resort, but the pieces that don’t – hooooo boy, they don’t! The velvet dress, the suit, the coat – I’m sweating my boobs off just looking at them!

    • Oekmama

      Am I on the same page? Resort= the clothes you take to that fab warm holiday resort, while everyone back home is sitting snowed in?

      So, the pale legs fit, I guess… The muted reds and purples feel too heavy…

    • sojourneryouth

      I think many resort collections are free and easy in their definition of “resort”. I’ve never been to this type of resort, but I LOVE the colors, and would wear most of these pieces.

  • Latin Buddy

    Sorry, this stuff looks cheap.

    • MilaXX

      I think it starts out that way and then turns into a decent collection. Especially the solid looks.

    • Bad Idea Jeans

      I’m pretty sure some of these garments have life savers glued on the front.
      I don’t really like anything beyond the first few looks, and I’m kinda iffy on those, too.

    • ankali

      The 2nd green look is pretty and chic, but I’m in total agreement that the rest of the collection (especially the jewel tones) looks cheap.

  • MilaXX

    I most like this. I wasn’t sure at first. I liked 3,4,6,8,11 onward. Those pants suit, especially 9 & that flowered one scream Florence Welch. The 2 gowns below the purple dress look a little prom or bridesmaid like. However the majority of this collection is really pretty.

    • Kent Roby

      Florence Welch? I was thinking more Florence Henderson…in Boca Raton!

      • MilaXX

        You know Flo would rock that floral number with a pair of clod hoppers and some hippy, dippy looking bag in a heart beat.

  • Constant Reader

    I don’t know how so much color and bedazzling makes me say “meh,” but it does. Except the fancy gladiator sandals that belong on the owner of a crystal store in Sedona. Those made me laugh.

  • kimmeister

    I like about half of the looks. I strongly dislike the footwear that looks like candy is glued to it, or the crazy flower print from the 70’s.

    • kirkyo

      A lot to like here but I’m with you on the print. What were those little bits of plastic that you put into the oven to make ornaments? It reminds me of that.

      • kimmeister

        Fimo?

      • cwade1211

        Shrinky Dinks!

  • Danielle

    Third down. I’m HERE for it.

  • marlie

    Beautiful. I love the color palette. I need to take another look…

    • Lorelei_D

      Me too! I am not a fan of pastels, so I am very happy to see these colors!

    • conniemd

      Yes! I absolutely loved the color palette. Some of the lace ones were meh, but the prints just sign.

    • random_poster

      That color palette is divine. This collection is causing extreme reactions from me, i.e. I either love or hate each individual garment.

    • MissAmynae

      I would happily wear almost every single piece.

    • Sweetvegan

      Love love love this palette! So sick of pastels and beige.

  • MW

    I love the colours. And the 5th dress is totally Michelle Williams’s in my eyes.

  • Audrey Lee

    The collection is okay, though surprisingly reads a little mature in my eyes. What got me was the LENS FLAIR on that one bag. What?

    • hughman

      I decided her finger was wonky but rather than Photoshop and have a whole expose on Jezebel about unrealistic finger expectations in fashion, they decided to just slap some glare over it.

    • FibonacciSequins

      Maybe the bag has a built-in flashlight. (j/k)

  • hughman

    The 70s vibe, with the pantsuits and the patterns and color choices, just makes me feel old. And also miss “The Mike Douglas Show”.

    • decormaven

      Laughing so hard! The flower motifs remind me of his set.

    • rh33

      “Today’s guests, Jacqueline Susanne, Rona Barrett, and Petula Clark!”

      • Raspberry2012

        I used to RUN home from school when he’d have The Bay City Rollers on. RUN, I tell you!

    • OMG, major flashback! I remember watching that after school. I can see the flowers and the “groovy” typography of the show right now. and yes, these clothes would be great for it, especially the ones with the multicolored flowers.

    • roche

      Thanks hughman for the Mike Douglas Show reference. Good cackle.

  • ceceliadid

    Mostly ugly, but 11 down is okay.

    Extra fug: warty shoes and cheap looking colored lace.

    • evave2

      9 10 and 18 are especially bad, the shoes the shoes (I write of the ones with the colored glass on them. Omigosh, really bad.)
      I don’t like the low white shoes either (are they the same shoe only one has the colored glass “inserts?” Takes away from every look.
      There are outfits I don’t think are so bad, but on the whole this is just bad.
      Of course, I doubt she cares what I might think here.
      Where is the resort this is worn? I literally cannot imagine who would wear these.

  • The color and color combos used in the first half are pretty but the patterns used turn the clothing aggressively ugly.

  • Alison

    My god, I’m in love with that third dress. Also, the second to last one totally looks like my sophomore prom dress.

  • decormaven

    Daniel Green sandals with Skittles embellishments.

  • Glam Dixie

    Wow, it started out kind of promising and then all went to hell.

    • FibonacciSequins

      That was exactly my reaction. “Oh!” “Oh…” “Oh. :(“

  • SuzyQuzey

    Some good, lots bad, and can we please ban all “skin-toned” illusion netting?

  • Trickytrisha

    Loving the colors here, but the floral fabric and “jeweled” shoes are beyond blech.

  • Dam_Angel

    Love this collection! Please Angelina-pick one!

    • DuBey2

      HAHAHA. You’re kidding, right? Because if Angelina Jolie wears one of these (not black), then I’ll never bet (or pick stocks) again.

      • Dam_Angel

        Ok, maybe I need to take another look. /:(

        • DuBey2

          She does seem to have a very small wheelhouse: Black, basic classics.

  • Denise Alden

    Huh. I was under the impression that I liked Alberta Ferretti. Guess I was wrong.

  • Jennifer Bober

    I really like some of these. Those saturated purples and fuchsias are fantastic.

  • boweryboy

    Nope. It goes from just alright to head scratching to tacky to what the hell? to head scratching to back to just alright.

  • Kent Roby

    I like the sequined numbers and the red coat (love); I hate the sheers, the velvet, most of the color blocking, and especially those so-sad floral lace outfits. The darker looks at the end of the thumbnails look interesting.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    #9 made me bust out laughing, boob show not withstanding…

  • demidaemon

    It’s cute. A bit limited in color pallette and silhouette, but cute.

    • Sarah

      I like it, except for the Crazy Ass Grecian Red Chiffon Romper, and of course the See-Thru Blouse with Slacks and the Super Mystery Machine Pantsuit.

      • demidaemon

        Yeah, I didn’t notice the sheer on the first pass. Not good.

        You could write excellent Non-Advertising Copy. I approve.

  • lizajane1776

    Love the dress in #18 for some reason. The fact that it isn’t black lace? Someone is having a little fun? But the purse and the shoes, nopenopenope!

  • What was the inspiration? The Red Hat Society?

    • Coolekat

      Especially the shoes. Ugg.

  • Darcy H

    PRINT. COLOR. PR CANDY CHALLENGE. LENS FLARE.

    But seriously though there are some killer pieces in here.

  • Lower L

    Hello, fit & flare dresses, come to mama. Also, I really want to try on the celery-colored shift with the cutouts and the sheer sleeves. I don’t know if I could pull it off, but I want to try.

  • macaroni

    Oh man, the shift dress in picture #8, I WANTS IT! *makes grabby motions*

  • Gatto Nero

    I like that they went for bold graphics, color blocking, and texture, though the palette for several of these pieces looks too wintry to me.

  • elirt

    Most of this would be totally unflattering on me and any woman with curves (aka boobs) and aren’t rail thing – the wastes look think on even the tiny models. Pretty stuff though, just way too specific of a fit for me to love this.

  • LeelaST

    The lime/coral sheer cutouts looks are beautiful but those M&M-embellished looks lost me completely.

  • DuBey2

    A Resort for purple-lovers only.

  • Anna

    Maybe I’m an asshole, but some of those prints look like bad hotel paintings of the 80s. Cheap, 80s resort, perhaps? Meh.

  • Lex

    Purple is not my favorite color- the early looks border on being too Valentine-y for my tastes. The collection vastly improves once that striped dress with the burst of yellow pops in. Also, that model makes a GREAT mannequin. Wow. Wooden much?

  • Sort of a downer… and frumpy…. the exact opposite that I’d expect from this house.

  • E_bee

    I would totally wear the long dress with the sheer belly (pic 10) as a maternity dress.

  • cwade1211

    I like all of this except the droopy maroon thing and the small floral cartoon-y print looks. Very pretty things.

  • Some stuff to love, like the top four, for example, then a few utems to not love at all.

  • joything

    The final row of chocolate & black evening wear won me.

  • Aurumgirl

    It’s very 1970’s Sears catalogue for me. Shoes especially.

    • Janice Bartels

      I was just thinking that some of these screamed Megan Draper to me (8 & 16). Except Megan probably wouldn’t shop at Sears.

  • kim bunchalastnames

    pieces. lots of pieces to love. i wonder what these would look like on real people.

  • quiltrx

    Wow…if not for that orange-y red, this looks exactly like a color palette I would pick out myself! LOVE.
    I really like the pieces with cutwork lace, cutouts (with colored sheer), and the big appliques. Some of the other stuff not so much, but overall cute and wearable.

  • Bozhi

    Love that green dress. Love a lot of this collection.

  • Bozhi

    This is the first resort collection I covet. These have Laguna/Carmel/Cambria written all over them. I want.

  • LJCdoc

    I don’t have a strong opinion about most of these. Kind of ok with the horizontal stripy dress with the yellow bag and the one above that. But #7: What in the actual fuck?

  • somebody blonde

    Very pretty. Not my style, but I love the color palette.

  • Sunraya

    I think they needed whiter models. They weren’t pasty enough. 😉

    These pale, pale legs are the best advertisement for stockings I’ve seen in a long time. Ghostly.

    • alyce1213

      There are only two models, one seems to be wearing stockings, and the other is indeed very pale. But skin color should be off-limits for snark, I think.

      • Sunraya

        I was referring to the lack of stockings today. And also to the lack of models of color by top designers, which is a disgrace. I believe i have every right to comment on that.

        I am as liberal as they come, but the PC police really make me want to scream. And really, maybe you should read more carefully, because you totally missed the point.

        • alyce1213

          We are so often in agreement here, I hesitated before commenting the way I did. I’m not a PC fanatic by any stretch of the imagination, and my reading comprehension is just fine. Yours was NOT a comment about the lack of stockings, even though you mentioned it (and I feel the same, by the way) — it was clearly about what you perceived as a pasty, pale, too-white (for you) model’s legs. Yes, I agree with your “politically correct” assertion that models of color are generally underrepresented. My point here was that there are ONLY two models (yes, both caucasian), but that snarking about the color of one’s legs is wrong. Can you imagine if anyone said a model’s legs were too dark?

          • Sunraya

            Saying a model’s legs are too dark is a completely different context than commenting on the fact that the model couldn’t get any whiter, which is a issue in the fashion world. The historical context makes them two totally different statements. Perhaps I misspoke or wasn’t clear, but here is what I meant: there is a huge bias against people of color in the fashion industry, and I find that many designers feel “the whiter, the better.” Hey, it’s just my observation, but that certainly is a different context than saying, “Hey, that model is too dark.” One statement is racist, the other is pointing it out. Maybe awkwardly.

            And I was referring to the lack of stockings, also. You don’t get to decide my intent.

            Going to leave this at that.

        • You were out of line making disparaging remarks about the models’ legs. Body snarking of any kind isn’t allowed here.

          • Sunraya

            I’ve been here a long time, and that there are no comments allowed about clearly anorexic models and actresses, or the racism that is prevalent in fashion is my last straw. God forbid there are ever any “Judgements” made. I wasn’t body snarking, i was implying that she couldn’t be whiter, just the way designers like the models. But you need to be PC, so go ahead and chastise me. (And as a MA in English, the term “body snarking” is absurd, anyway.)

            I think you guys have gotten quite impressed with yourselves and at the same time misuse your huge audience to address issues in fashion.

            I’m sure you’ll delete this immediately, but that’s fine. I know it’s your site. Be well.

          • “These pale, pale legs are the best advertisement for stockings I’ve seen in a long time. Ghostly.”

            You are so full of horseshit trying to pass this off as “calling out racism.”

          • Sunraya

            Nay!!! I’m really not full of horseshit, Wilbur!

            As I said above, I did both. I don’t get why you are so married to defending against what I did NOT do.

            Saying that she is pasty is NOT the same as saying the model is too dark. Alyce felt that she had to be the PC police, but sadly didn’t understand that calling designers out on using really, really white models is not body snarking, nor is it racism. This is what I said originally:

            I think they needed whiter models. They weren’t pasty enough. 😉

            Then, I added the stocking comment. Probably to soften my criticism. Alyce brought in all of the other nonsense.

            God, I teach rhetoric and logic, and this argument is totally ridiculous and shows no sense of balance or understanding of what I implied, OR the history of people of color in this country. I wish you would put as much effort into addressing racism in fashion and the anorexia you regularly feature on these pages as you have in proving that I am an evil anti-pasty woman. Yes, I know. This site is just for fun. But it could have been so much more.

            Ciao.

    • bizarro

      But they are both so lovely, who cares about skin color. I kept looking at the models and not the clothes. I definitely have hair envy, especially the one with dark hair.

  • Sunraya

    And some of them look “chip in a chip way.”

  • tuffy77

    Is it just me or do a lot of these look like knockoffs from past Prada & Miu Miu seasons? The Deco cutouts, the color blocking, the textural lace, the big gem necklace on top of that scarf midway through. And it’s all so heavy.

  • Janice Bartels

    I like a resort collection that isn’t afraid of color (and super saturated color at that).

  • Tanya Wade

    Smells like Boca Raton.

  • Kathy_Marlow

    The shoes remind me of my grandmother’s and not in a good way.

  • KTBSN

    Nod to early 70s motif/ colors. Some cute frocks. Liking the (mostly) wearable shoes.

  • broke&fashionable

    I am strangely in love with the pieces that appear to be made of those dot candies that came on wax paper from my youth.

  • crash1212

    Saddest resort ever.

  • MaggieMae

    I’m digging the color palette (except for that green) and I’m a sucker for looks with a retro mod 70s vibe.

  • rebeemoon

    Absolutely love the color palette.

  • mickiemonkey

    OH MY GOD THE SHOES. Makes me want to take a fistful of thorazine and shuffle around with my mouth open.

  • Imasewsure

    1/3 Nancy Reagan, 1/3 Mrs. Brady, 1/3 Florence Welch… not my fav collection of the year for sure… and ugly ass shoes

  • Emily Smith

    I have an urgent and pressing need for dress 3. I have a wedding I could actually wear that to in August. Assuming it comes with about 6-9 inches cut off the bottom…

  • AndieJay

    Designers are nodding their heads off to the 70s right now. Does that mean that 80s shoulder pads are next?

  • Radish

    #4 and #19 are the only ones I’d wear.

  • colorjunky

    Very wearable for the average Ms., but not particularly original.

  • suzq

    Not crazy about the lace, but the laser cutouts are incredible. Why do I have a taste for gumdrops all of a sudden?

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Are we sure this is Alberta Ferretti and not Jan Brady?

  • Zeee

    The purple Mrs Brady pantsuit may have mortally wounded me. Tell my cat I love him.

  • bluefish

    I like many of these pieces, nostalgia, and am up for the shoes in particular. Like the styling — someone put their heart into it to bring it to the next level. Sounds odd but I feel like the age of great designers is somehow gone — like a vapor — and that so much emphasis on stars and what they wearing has hastened it. Waiting for a surge but in some weird way I feel like the red carpet has killed real fashion in the same way tv killed the radio.

  • Oh, lord. When one of your pieces on a wafer thin model look like she has a gut, you might want to consider pulling it from the line. Just because you stole Marcia Brady’s sketches doesn’t mean you have to use all of them, Ferretti.

  • Oh, Vanessa Hudgens? Here is a hippie boho you can work. I have a friend who would adore every piece, but I’ll just take that dress and tunic in the cartoon floral and call it a day.

  • yethica

    I would wear about 95 % of this line, but not in summer…. maybe in mid-late fall. But OMG, that first dress and the TRENCH. To. Die. For.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    I love the colors, but some of those shapes and some of those fabrics… It’s very poly-looking and I can’t say I can like that.

  • Other than the weird tied-up dress, I’m in love.

  • smayper

    I can’t even look at the clothes because that first model’s arms are frightening. Giving me shudders. I hope that’s not body snark!

  • Synnae

    Hate the styling and the models but damn apart from the flower pants and the beaded gladiator sandals I want every single item. Did not expect that when I opened this post. The coat porn is to die for!

  • Synnamin

    Some gorgeous pieces and some real klunkers. Sadly, I anticipate the burgundy over-the-shoulder bedsheet tie dress will end up on Maggie Gyllenhaal

  • Tami from Seattle

    I don’t mean to body-shame, but I can’t see the clothes for the crazy-skinny dark-haired model.

  • Sweetvegan

    Whenever you guys post an entire collection, I always know that it’s gotta be something really striking. Maybe not my cup of tea, but something really memorable. This collection is not just striking and memorable – this is also gorgeous.

  • Victoria Anzalone

    I adore this!

  • amanda lynn

    One of each, please and thanks.

  • Stunning. This is a great turn for this designer. I am loving nearly all the looks.

  • rhaazz

    I don’t know what resort they’re going to, and the shoes should be burned, bit I love love love everything else.

  • Sara Brams-Miller

    Yeah. I’m pretty obsessed with all of this. They need to get in my closet NOW.
