Self Control

'Control', 'go your own way', 'individualisation' are keywords and mottos that can be found in the accompanying texts of the new collections. The contemporary lifestyle is motivated from the wish to live 'uniqueness', to be authentic. This is even expressed in clothing styles.

Video: 'Self Control' by the British singer 'Sunday Girl' (aka Jade Williams), released on 2 August 2010. The song is the new interpretation of the 80ies hit by singer Laura Branigan. In this video, the 'Sunday Girl' (aka Jade Williams) wears a dress from the 'Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti' FW2010/11 collection. In March 2010, the observer has entitled an article about the young musician, DJ, illustrator and blogger with 'One to watch: Sunday Girl' and cites her: "I like things to be simple. My look is 'scruffy Chanel' because I love Coco Chanel's style, plain and masculine. It's a nice contrast to my music, which I want to feel like a wall of beautiful sound." On her website, the Sunday Girl writes about fashion, music, art, life.

Alberta Ferretti fragrance for women; FW2010/11. The Italian designer Alberta Ferretti is known for her red carpet creations. She is the designer of the main line Alberta Ferretti and Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti. In 2009, Alberta Ferretti released her first perfume in Italy; in 2010, the label steps out worldwide (Germany in September 2010). Alberta Ferretti developed the scent from the imagination of a woman: keywords are 'style, elegance, authenticity', and 'sensual, warm-hearted, open-minded'. For the realisation of the floral-wooden fragrance, Alberta Ferretti worked together with perfumer Sophie Labbé (IFF).
