Joseph Altuzarra came on the scene couple years back with big shout out from various fashionistas and industry heavyweights. No surprises, because Joseph Altuzarra is indeed a very talented designer.
He has always focus on creating luxury pieces, not the look, but the feel. The feel his garments would do to your body and soul.
The jackets are amazing, with contrast colours and sizeable collar overlay. The long coats look like a million bucks, in lush green, in royal blue and in fun pink. It is something you will grow into loving over the time.
Next, I like the heavy weave and loose fringe pieces. They look raw on the first glance, but is actually refined in construction.
This FW14, I feel he has gone to seek luxury in women’s inner-wear and transformed them into elegant pieces for the outside.
The silky thin body-fitting dresses resemble the nighties we do at home, but more constructed to be presentable for a casual date night. A nightie that looks elegant and sexy but not cheap. How about that.
Seeing a number of designers putting in striking colours for the fall winter season makes me happy. Though it is always cool to be in black, but the world also needs choices.
If you are looking for that piece of fashion coat, something not too boring but would last you for a while, I strong believe Altuzarra is the place to go.
