Philosophy was established in 1984 as a diffusion line of the Alberta Ferretti brand. Since 2014, Lorenzo Serafini has been Creative Director of the line, honouring the codes of the wider fashion house while also incorporating a more playful and youthful element to designs.
Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini is known for its romantic and feminine aesthetic, creating ethereal collections for women and children. Beautiful, vibrant colour palettes are met with whimsical prints, such as gingham, florals, spots and stripes. Wide-leg trousers, denim bustiers and flowing dresses are produced in pretty hues and adorned with signature detailing. Ruffle, lace, and bows are seen across designs, adding an extra layer of femininity to these intricate collections. Although romantic and dainty, Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini designs also offer classic Italian refinement, ensuring that each piece is wearable and sophisticated.
Meeting crisp cotton dresses and elegant tulle gowns are more functional pieces for the everyday, such as soft logoed sweatshirts and slogan knitwear. Mini skirts and patterned trousers elevate a daily uniform, while accessories from Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini add elegance to any outfit. From raffia bags and crocheted sun hats to chain-detail crossbody styles and nappa leather boots, Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini offers shoes and accessories to perfectly finish off a look.
With stores in Paris, Milan, Rome and London, Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini collections can also be found online through the brand’s website. Stockists such as Farfetch, My Theresa and Net-a-Porter also offer Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini designs.
