Altuzarra is one of the most anticipated shows in New York, and one of favorites amongst editors who we see wearing his label all the time. Joseph Altuzzara went for a more liberating tailoring this time, narrowing his structured embellishments to simply “layers.” Don’t take it wrong though, because if it’s Altuzarra doing his version of layering, it’ll be in the most genuine and luxurious manner.
The show began with Joan Smalls wearing a silk striped button-down shirt and high-thigh semi-fringed skirt. If the first look said easiness with her shirt unbuttoned all the way to her waist, the rest was even more intriguing. Just about all skirts came with super-high slits on the left, but with Altuzarra’s signature of casual fringing. The most interesting skirts were the ones that seemed to be derived from an original button-down shirt cut to form a simple skirt; these will generate opinions and DIY when prices are revealed.
The silk and layered shirts were the best part of this collection, but if the Altuzarra woman had something to say about these pieces it’d be in his suit jackets fitted to look easily luxurious with anything. His liquid silver and gold numbers – skirts, top, and dresses – brought a soft tailoring that were noteworthy.
