Altuzarra Mode

June 21st, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Altuzarra – Resort 2014 from Simon Cave Studios on Vimeo.

Joseph Altuzarra‘s Resort 2014 collection comes to life in an atmospheric film by Simon Cave that adds a touch of mystery to Altuzarra’s romantic array of looks. Manuela Frey, Kayley Chabot and Magdalena Jasek feature in the black and white clip, which pulses with energy and a killer soundtrack courtesy of Cave himself. When asked what inspired the cutting-edge clip Cave pointed to the line’s powerful ethos, “for the past few years I have to been visiting Joseph’s studio and I drew a lot of inspiration from his amazing mood boards. I wanted the film to have classic, chic, sexy and seductive themes but still be modern.”

Experience the stunning new film above and take a look at a few choice pieces from Altuzarra’s elegant resort collection below.

Designer: Joseph Altuzarra
Director: Simon Cave
Styling: Vanessa Traina (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) and Melanie Huynh (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists)

Resort Getaway

May 24th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Resort is underway and designers are turning out collections filled with surprising elements – whether the look is downtown cool, or polished elegance, the mini-season is off to a refreshing start.

BURBERRY PRORSUM
Designer: Christopher Bailey
Models: Ava Smith & Charlotte Wiggins

The Burberry look has always been a mix of luxe and offbeat, so this season’s playful touches like jeweled detailing and transparent lace skirts feel just right. Bailey masterfully reinterprets the house’s standards season after season, so for those in search of trench coats, cardigans and well cut jackets there is plenty to enjoy. Statement looks like pastel brocade topcoats and crystal covered pencil skirts provide the requisite easy-going glamour resort is all about.

DKNY
Models: Valery KaufmanEmeline Ghesquiere

You can have the DKNY resort collection in any color – as long as it’s black. DKNY has always reflected the needs of an urbane, youthful consumer but for resort things got gritty. Perhaps taking a cue from the haute-goth stylings of lines like Givenchy, DKNY filled their collection with hard-edge black pieces in multiple incarnations. Lacy blouses, transparent floor-length skirts and textured bomber jackets all in inky shades. A few chic metallic pieces added interest, but the stark looks stole the show.

OSCAR DE LA RENTA
Designer: Oscar de la Renta
Models: Kayley ChabotAmanda MurphyMagdalena JasekMaria Borges Manuela Frey & Pauline Van der Cruysse

Who can resist Oscar de la Renta’s frothy brand of femininity. For the legendary designer the resort season meant an abundance of lively colors and cocktail frocks filled with color, pattern and a youthful joie de vivre. Even if you’re not rushing out to brunch, or a fabulous party in one of De La Renta’s creations everyone can appreciate the grandeur of his vision.
