Tough femininity inspired by the sensual ease of the 80’s, underpinned by an air of adventure. Altuzarra’s Resort 2017 collection is all of those things and more.
The well-loved Alize Jacket has been reworked this season as an Altuzarra Perfecto in supple leather with laced detailing. Paired with day dresses in vibrant contrast lace overlays, setting the playful and spontaneous tone of the collection.
Plaid silk prints in bleached scarlet and royal blue are applied to the Shirtdress (another Altuzarra staple) which makes reference to the tie-dye pieces featured in the previous Spring season.
The signature Altuzarra silhouette remains with the likes of the Fitted Blazer, and the Slit Pencil Skirt. In addition, this season introduces new shapes with boxy tailoring in the form of masculine boyfriend blazers, studded sweaters, and button-up skirts and dresses.
The lines between daywear and loungewear are beautifully blurred with trompe l’oeil pieces. Silk lace-trimmed camisole tops and slips are worn under waifish knits.
For the evening, cupped sequins are delicately applied to chantilly lace tops and dresses in feminine yet whimsical colours to a create a subtly dazzling effect.
The shoe range is alluring and sassy, featuring a newly fashioned conical heel. Sandals, zip-up booties and pumps take centre stage in natural and coloured python. The Ghianda accessories offering also continues to expand this season, with the new Soft Clutch in calf and python skins designed to transition seamlessly from day to night.
Wearable everyday staples with that ‘classic Altuzarra sophistication’, and a dash of new school cool.
Love, Ms.Raé xo
