The Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti Spring 2011 collection shown at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week offers a refreshing break from the whitewashed palettes we've seen all weekend long. Here, Ferretti takes us to Asia, where conical coolie hats, koi prints and vibrant floral patterns tantalize the senses.

Implications - Asia was once thought of as "exotic," and even though the continent is accessible, designers continue to be inspired by a culture that continues to be alien to some. The land of the orient has had a large history of tradition, food, music and artworks from which many have drawn influence. As Asia continues to develop, businesses will take advantage of its economic growth and artists will continue to find new inspirations from the land of the orient.
