NEW YORK FASHION WEEK: ALTUZARRA AUTUMN WINTER 2017

Posted on by Cameron Tewson

Exciting to say, Joseph Altuzarra took a totally different path this season, leaving behind the instantly recognisable, pure cherry sweetness of his Summer 2017 collection that we all loved. Looking at his Autumn Winter 2017 collection, its fair to say the word ‘heavy’ is the term that matches best, but not in the negative meaning of this word. In fact, everything was ‘heavy’ about the collection, from the atmosphere of Spring Street studios, to the clothes.

A display of deep velvets in dark colour palette mixed up with a little yellow, knee-length, lace-up boots; fur coats and jackets; richness of embroideries and embellishments including the mink coat, hand stitched with teardrop pearls and cable-knit sweaters with matching skirts featuring delicate thread of florals.

The styling of these preciously looking clothes was made-to-measure for a woman, who loves eat, lives and breathes Altuzarra‘s fashion – she’s both, romantic and sophisticated. As the designer said, his main aim was to build a dialogue between the past and today, and he done that perfectly. However, the past felt more dominant in this conversation. Renaissance motifs were the main inspiration, for a reason.
