Runway Report: Altuzarra Fall 2015

If there’s one word that sums up Altuzarra collections, it’s statement. It couldn’t have been truer this season, with the stark monochromes and unapologetic bright white knee high boots. The designer pulled out all the stops, encompassing everything from fox fur collars, luxe and opulent, to sensual, sheer blouses, toned down only by their high necks. Similarly, the lesser-frequent additions peppered throughout, like the tight-fitting baby blue cable knit jumper, was muted with a polo neck. No material or pattern went unturned in the search for a perfectly cohesive Autumn collection. Check, leathers, wool, bead embellishment. There was an element of old glamour, too, thanks to the jewel tone velvet dresses and lace peplums. Brown leather skirts with centre slits and sugar pinks whispered notes of the seventies. Excitingly, Altuzarra‘s new handbag collection made it’s debut in the show, too. Think tidy leather saddle bags with polished boho additions, such as tassles and braids.
