New York: It came as no surprise that Joseph Altuzarra’s latest offering referenced Tom Ford’s past work for Gucci; He has done it before after all. What did raise an eyebrow is that he sought inspiration from Ford’s S/S 2001 collection. Those of us old enough to remember will recall that that particular collection received less than stellar reviews. Fortunately for Altuzarra, the similarities ended at the shoes, styling, and monochrome exits. The neon knitted pieces were surefire bestsellers, and the Hawaiian prints were perfectly in tune with what is happening in New York this week. Also on trend were the figure hugging dresses and pants that contoured the body to scuba suit perfection. This young designer has firmly established himself as one to watch. – Shine Dharan
