• Altuzarra A/W 14 •

'Interior' by Lucio Fontana inspired Joseph Altuzarra for Fall. After a recent acquisition of the label by French powerhouse Kering, all eyes were on the designer, who like london's Christopher Kane is getting deserved recognition which will propel the labels expansion.

I researched the works of Lucio Fontana and I was looking forward to seeing how Altuzarra would incorporate the works. A simple can as with a slash is the simple basis of most of the late Italian artists work. 

I must say I didn't like the first 17 looks. It was from then on I thought everything was incredible. The slashes of colour were featured. Look 23 was a black strapless midi length dress with a side split and pink and red lining. It was sexy but classy. Look 21 and 22 were Joseph's technicoloured fur dreamcoats, pun intended. I can already see Anna Wintour wearing them. Look 30's white fur cropped jacket and grey silk dress were exquisite.

I was extremely disappointed with the first half of the collection but was elated that I loved everything from then on. Hopefully next season I'll love everything from start to finish and not just half.
