Altuzarra - #NYFW Spring 2017

"Joseph Altuzarra set out to fashion an antidote for our uncertain, complicated times. "The election is hard," he said before the show. "I wanted something that felt happy, joyous, flirty, and fun." [As] a film lover, Altuzarra looked at the David Lynch movie Wild at Heart to get him started. The python print was lifted from a jacket sported by Nicolas Cage's ex-con. Laura Dern's Lula wore the precise shade of hot pink that Altuzarra used for a twin set belted over a pair of striped briefs. This wasn't a literal homage - Altuzarra is too sophisticated a designer for that - but it did register higher on the coquette scale than his recent offerings, what with the sweet little cherry prints on ruffled slip dresses and matching hose, the sequined lemons stitched to denim-printed python, and sundry other fruits that decorated everything from body-loving chenille knits to embroidered evening dresses. For the sugar averse, Altuzarra added cargo jackets and a matching army green pencil skirt piped in leather and snake. There were also sexy, stretchy stripe knit dresses and ruffled bra tops. Rounding out the collection was a good helping of gingham tailoring in a smaller check than the popular gingham from Altuzarra's Spring collection of two years ago." -
