Editor Obsession: Norisol Ferrari’s Spring 2013 Collection
From floor-skimming evening coats to ’40s-inspired suiting, we can’t get enough of these straight-from-the-runway styles.
On September 10, 2012, I attended Norisol Ferrari’s Spring 2013 show and was blown away. As it’s designed for the spring season, the collection is a departure from the beautiful furs and outerwear that we think of when we think of Norisol. While expertly tailored, the collection is light and airy. The garments—including fitted, 1940s-inspired dresses, suiting and a breathtaking floor-length evening coat—have movement.
The show was styled perfectly, from the Kentucky Derby–worthy hats to the gorgeous cat-eye glasses. Each model wore a tasteful assortment of diamonds and walked the runway in classic Manolo Blahniks, which in some cases added pops of red, gold and green to the neutral palette.
From MartyParty’s soundtrack to model casting that included Carmen Dell’Orefice and Carol Alt, the show was flawlessly executed. The collection is sexy, elegant and designed with practical details for real women’s bodies. And it’s diverse enough to take care of my entire Spring/Summer wardrobe.
