“PFW Fall 2020: Altuzarra”
Joseph Altuzarra focus his autumn winter collection on legacy, past generations and future beauty. It is the designer himself who tells that the idea came from a box of clothes he inherited from his Chinese grandmother (Altuzarra is half Chinese and half French). Each dress told a story of style and elegance now far from our contemporaneity, and Altuzarra decided to recreate it, putting together a much more feminine and sophisticated collection than usual. The cuts are beautiful and refined, like the neckline of the coat at the opening; the waist is underlined; fabrics are precious.
In addition to the dresses, almost all midi and with natural prints, such as the cherry blossoms that are well reminiscent of China, there are matching outfit. We have a gray suit with an impeccable cut, suit with soft skirt and knitted co-or, beautiful, super casual and equally classy. The jewels are 100% vintage and come from a New York store, De Vera. They are discreet, even if they have a decidedly baroque and opulent style. Bags and shoes, the true gem at Altuzarra, are not constricted at all and are covered with feathers. They are a decidedly over the top touch and playful in an otherwise rigorous collection made of pure elegance.
