Altuzarra Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Among our very favorite brands out there, Altuzarra is certainly among the top 25. With good reason too for it combines chic and sophisticated with romantic and utterly stylish, generally speaking. The Altuzarra pre-fall 2016 collection is, of course, as lovely as expected, though seeing the pre-fall so soon after the unveiling of the spring and summer 2016 looks leaves our minds whirling. We have yet to add the earlier season’s pieces to our wardrobes, let alone the mid-season afterwards!

Altuzarra Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

There are twenty-eight looks in the collection, not nearly as many as one might expect, but the brand brings us quality and we can forgive them for the lack of quantity. There are at least a few looks that we are dying to have as our own as it is. Joseph Altuzarra has his customers in mind and that is an amazing thing. This capsule collection, dubbed Shadow Jersey, includes tech jerseys turned into sharply tailored pieces, things that can come out of the suitcase without the problem of wrinkles so you can travel worry-free.

A fitted double-breasted coat for the five months of sales? You got it! Keeping the shirtdresses on? Why not? They are a bestseller for the label. We cannot help but love the business thinking here, for fashion is as much business as it is art, if not more.

There is a whole romantic aspect to the Altuzarra pre-fall 2016 collection as well. We notice the whimsical manner of movement and the practicality of the pieces that inspire a certain form of desire, the emphasis placed on polka dots and cricket stripes to give it an intriguing pattern. We notice the slits up the thighs right off the bat, whether on simple black skirts or pretty black and white dotted cinched waist and short but puffed sleeve dresses.

There is the whole sock and shoe combo stiletto half boots as well, while things shine rather bright with black and red palettes offsetting the pretty squiggly diagonal designs on the midi skirts. Midi is in after all and most of the outfits on the runway show the trend, while others have tailored pants or suits to display, a rather lovely striped version coming in with a cinched waist, sleeveless vest and a good amount of skin shown at the neckline.

There are some pretty full-length dresses too, with spaghetti straps and a small train. While most of the looks are a chic and mature design, there are those that veer more towards individualistic or simply sexy, as one might expect from the brand. We love it all though and with those very 1970s handbags in tow, we cannot imagine a better label to be rooting for come the pre-fall days.

For the next few months, we’ll be topping up our clothing with the best of the more casual designs that our favorites have to offer, including pretty little dresses with slits up the thighs. Interesting that there are no plunging necklines here though.
