Altuzarra Fall 2012 RTW
Joseph Altuzarra showcased a series of beautiful printed knitwear and streamlined coats of naval influence. Most of his collection consisted of dresses and separates adorned with silver medallions sequins with Moroccan flare, but the immense styling made several outfits too busy for my taste. I wish Altuzarra displayed more pieces like the ones below, separates that feature a cross between street and luxury. Take the over sized sweaters paired with classic white dress shirts for example. Or the ordinary trouser turned extraordinary with structured pockets. Or the slight pop of Middle Eastern design on the front of a pullover. Those subtle details are more interesting than the overloaded bedazzle that composes most of this collection.
