Call it a power play. For fall, Joseph Altuzarra said goodbye to spring’s lavish, ornamented exotica in favor of a more hard-edge version of glamour. It made for a fabulous collection with sexy silhouettes sculpted close to the body and an abundance of black and white leather (real and fake) and statement-making patchworked fox fur.
“I wanted to go back to the idea of the street a bit more,” Altuzarra said during a preview. But don’t think he was talking urban, everyday dressing. Instead, the designer moved from the more eclectic streams of his last two collections (Berbers, Bollywood) into a particular city scenario. “In my mind,” he said, “it was this idea of an office lobby with women [coming and going] — sort of like a corporate uniform.” That must be one sexy office environment.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
