Altuzzara blends innocence with seduction

New York: Altuzarra continues to build on cementing his brand DNA by sending out a another stellar collection. For Spring 2015, he opened with a vignette of covert and sexy gingham silhouettes – a slim skirtsuit featured a provocative, high middle slit as did the button through skirts, shirtdress and shirts that were unbuttoned just enough to tantalize! Altuzarra said his inspiration came from Rosemary’s Baby and Barry Lyndon – “Both movies are so beautiful,” Altuzarra said, “but it’s an ill-fated, sinister beauty. Which I liked.”   There was a little bit of the ‘hard’ element in this collection and a juxtaposition in part – the articulated leather grids were not as innocent. To close the show, Altuzarra sent forth five beautiful, billowing silk gowns –  diaphanous, and so sexy. – Lizzy Bowring
