Saturday February 9th, 2013 – Skylight Modern
The Altuzarra Fall Winter 2013 Collection is inspired by the ever-changing and multi-faceted aspects of the Street. It continues to explore the core Altuzarra aesthetic, with its restrained and ultra-feminine silhouette. Their strictness of line reflects the purity of the urban landscape. With the color palette concentrated in black, anthracite grey, sycamore green and forest green accented by shocks of optic white and persimmon, this collection’s tailoring gives the Altuzarra woman classic menswear with a fiercely feminine twist. The design and construction emphasize the nip of the waist and exaggerate the hip, while shrunken proportions mixed with a bolder shoulder volume sharpen the classic silhouette. This collection mirrors the street itself, melding disparate materials and textures to create a new whole: Wispy chiffon softens felted wools,Leather turtlenecks modernizes tailored flannel trousers,Fox fur peeks from behind bonded crepe, Black/White intarsia fox fur outerwear add volume and proportion to the strictness of pencil skirts, Satin-finished gunmetal hardware of snaps, rivets and industrial zippers strengthens fluid jerseys, Novel matte poly-leather plays with classic pieces in a myriad of ways, sensually pairing with mink in anatomical cocktail dresses and reinterpreting the classic biker jacket. Luxurious materials, exaggerated proportions and deconstructed classic tailoring: like the Altuzarra woman, this collection is consistent in its very ability to surprise.
