Joseph Altuzarra presents his new, yet somehow predefined Altuzarra pre-fall 2014 collection, which seems to be the logical succession of the line he presented for spring. The main peculiarity about this collection is the specific “sentiment of ease,” about which Altuzarra spoke a few words, when giving an insight into his new collection. He also added, “I was interested in comfort and how it can work with the idea of seduction.” Thus, this is actually what we see in the new Altuzarra line most of all.
The most feminine designs come with comfy silhouettes, which are not far-fetched from being called a little bit manly either. The very first look, for instance, features a combination of an extraordinarily designed yet absolutely chic milky coat topping a pair of a grey top with navy blue pencil skirt of knee length. Further, come more body-conscious shapes, presented as a composition involving a slight comeback of the options from the previous collection. The bald side split on the stripy skirt, paired with a nice top and a grey suit is one of those reminders.
The minimalistic yet chic grey dress, with a body-flattering silhouette, and a purely elegant design comes right after, followed by a break of a sweet orange shade used for coats, color plays for tops, delicate and girly sweatshirts, checkered patterns for skirts, as well as super cute scarfs. Shade plays of orange are also combined to counterbalance the grey bottom part of another extremely feminine and attractive dress. The monochrome options, including all-black and all-grey alternatives, the latter also being introduced with drapings and the curious threads for tops hanging loosely at the front, which are well remembered from the previous line, are also quite noteworthy here.
So summing up the main drives having taken place in creation of the Altuzarra pre-fall 2014 collection, we can clearly observe the try to experiment with more extended versions of those pieces found previously. This experiment turned out to be success as we can see, and that way we have a brand new source of fresh fall looks at our disposal.
