Ombre may be all the rage, but the Alberta Ferretti Resort 2013 collection kicks it up a notch with tie-dye brushstrokes. The lookbook is a mixture of billowing holiday dresses and ladylike tailored suits decked out in funky patterns and graphic prints.

The first half of the lookbook features a series of soft muted blue skirt suits with an painterly tie-dye effect. The mixture of blue and purple appear to have been applied roughly on to the fabric's surface. This distinctive motif has been used in the collection's pants and maxi dresses, staying close to the hemline to achieve a festive ombre effect. The safari-inspired shirts and wind-swept dresses are ideal for tropical climates and sizzling summer weather.

Whether you are looking for a carefree gown or a statement-worthy suit, the Alberta Ferretti Resort 2013 collection is full of chic, offbeat looks.
