Pre-Fall 2016 : Altuzarra

Joseph Altuzarra launched his clothing brand, Altuzarra in New York, in 2008. Since then, his name and brand has skyrocketed into a global success, becoming one of the best luxury labels available - in my opinion. His brand is solely dedicated to women's ready-to-wear, and is heavily influenced by his own experiences and multicultural aspects to fashion. 

He was born in Paris, France in 1983. When he finished college, he moved to New York and interned at Marc Jacobs before landing a job working for Proenza Schouler. He eventually returned to Paris to become Ricardo Tisci's first assistant at Givenchy. Looking over his incredible CV working for amazing brands, it's easy to say that Altuzarra has not only a passion for the industry, but a wide range of knowledge about the industry. Knowing his background, I couldn't help but look for similarities between his collection and brands he has worked for. Bringing his knowledge from working for my favourite brands such as Givenchy, I instantly knew I would be in love with this collection before I even viewed it. Bravo Altuzarra!

I adored this collection. So sophisticated and sharp, yet feminine and fun which is really hard to balance as a designer. He kept the sophisticated look by incorporated tailored pieces, double breasted blazers, pencil skirts and dressed. He added the fun feel with the bold colours and patterns on the dresses, coats, trousers and bags. He included quite a lot of striped pieces which were so flattering, and sequinned pieces for party looks. So much texture was involved adding to the boldness of the pieces. It's as if he had thought of every single piece of clothing and accessories that his client needs in her wardrobe. He kept the shoes very simple, and let the clothes do the talking. He kept the same design of shoes pretty much the same but differentiated the heel height and colours. I am sure, that his clients are going to be seriously impressed with his creations within this collection, because I for one, loved it.
