Founded in 2008 by Paris-born, New-York based designer Joseph Altuzarra, the eponymous luxury womenswear brand adopts a sophisticated and structural approach to women’s clothing; celebrating the female form with elegant detailing, considered cuts and digital prints. Having worked under Marc Jacobs before freelancing at Proenza Schouler and then first assistant to Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci, Altuzarra launched his debut collection of 15 pieces. Combining his rooted French classicism with his learned American pragmatism, the brand has developed a distinctive aesthetic that merges soft tailoring and draping with sensual and feminine silhouettes.
For AW16, Altuzarra was inspired by Jim Jarmusch’s “Only Lovers Left Alive,” and the vampire’s esoteric interests and sense of curiosity. These discordant elements come together to create a diverse collection of Victoriana fabrics, North African patterns, bohemian prints and folk fringing. Silk pyjama suits and iridescent jackets are littered with petit fleurs, hippy dresses and pencil skirts with paisley bandana prints and kaftan dresses with Berber stripes. Oversized knits and chunky shearling coats worn over fluid mid-length and slit pencil skirts keep confident daywear seasonal alongside slim henleys and ribbed roll necks layered under boho slip dresses whilst precisely-cut single-breasted peplum blazers add a sense of formal femininity.
