Femininity and grace wrapped up every single look demonstrated during the stunning Altuzarra spring/summer 2015 collection show unveiled during New York Fashion Week spring 2015! The models walked down the runway looking like self-confident aristocratic ladies that certainly knew how to channel seductiveness without looking vulgar. For his spring line, Joseph Altuzarra found his inspirations in Rosemary’s Baby and Barry Lyndon, as “Both movies are so beautiful, but it’s an ill-fated, sinister beauty. Which I liked.” As a result he delivered a chic and ultra-wearable line of feminine and classy clothing pieces with admirable slight hints of provocative allure.
The Altuzarra spring/summer 2015 collection opened with a range of baby pink and blue gingham printed pieces, being skirt suits, shirtdresses with half-tied strings at the waist, shirt and classy pants duos. Although the looks were modest and elegant, they still featured the right amount of sex-appeal brought to life thanks to the use of the high middle slits mainly. Then, all-things-striped and beautiful came to replace the checkered fantasy using mainly black and white hues that looked so smashing in combination with the thin brown leather belts and leather grids. The same elegance and femininity were preserved in these looks too, which were composed of stylish high-waisted pencil skirts with curious slits and striped shirts, V-neck body-hugging dresses that looked so effortlessly chic and minimalistic, as well as black tailored pants and white shirts topped by the leather grids.
The collection bore some hints of the safari-inspired sand hues too used for minimalist below-the-knee dresses and shirts unbuttoned and tucked into the striped wrap skirts. Then we also saw timeless blacks and black-and-white duos. The pieces here were even classier featuring the same pencil skirts with slits and unbuttoned shirts, which were adorned with boldness thanks to the black leather grids worn over them. A couple of all-black dresses infused transparency fabrics and there was also a fetish leather latticework dress in black hue that looked so tantalizing and provocative.
The finale of the Altuzarra spring/summer 2015 collection was highly delicate and breezy, featuring three delicately printed and flowy silk “deflated 18th-century dresses” that looked so divine, while still having something casual and easy in them. We can hardly imagine a better and more wearable collection for the upcoming season, if you are a devoted fan of the classic style with contemporary twists!
