Altuzarra Fall/Winter 2011

Posted by stephan | February 13th, 2011

After last season’s exercise in minimalist severity, Joseph Altuzarra lightens up for fall. Eschewing monochromatic color palates and structured separates in favor of flowing silhouettes and chunky parkas, Altuzarra hit all the right notes with his latest collection. Inspired by innate style and the sort of girls who roll out of bed looking pristine (Kate Moss was an inspiration) each look aims for effortlessness. While comparisons to the work of Marc Jacobs during his grunge phase are sure to abound, this isn’t a rehash. The sophistication of the color palette, combined with the sexiness of the sheer blouses and body conscious dresses makes for an adult twist on grunge’s youthful standards. Throw in luxurious materials like tweed, fur and satin, expertly layered by stylist Melanie Huynh and you have the makings of a zeitgeist moment; 2011, this is your look.

    Hopefully all that fur is fake. Its so gross seeing carcass on humans. All that fur just distracted me from seeing the nice clothes.

  3. Victoire says:

    LOVE FUR. THE MORE FUR, THE BETTER! AND I ONLY LIKE IT REAL AND FRESH!

    AND NO, I AM NOT CRUELLA DEVILLE!

    I was at this show with a 3D production crew. These designs are stunning and gorgeous! Even better to see them in 3D – the fabric and embellishments move so gracefully.

    Fur is the embodiment of our subconsciousness. It’s a wrapping. Whether it’s in it’s original owner’s psyche or borrowed. Can’t see what the problem is.
