Joseph Altuzarra is here. As the 2011 winner of fashion’s prestigious CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award, this former design intern of Marc Jacobs and former tailor at Givenchy has got it. I don’t know, maybe it’s the birth city of Paris, or his stint in New York with fashion forward gurus like Jacobs, or his BA in Art and Art History from Swarthmore, but his ready to wear collection and shoes are attracting several head nods.
The Fall 2012 collection combines all of the designer’s background elements. Beautiful Moroccan motifs. Gold metal trimmings adorning below the knee fringe skirts with central splits and topped with sleek black and navy well-tailored blazers. These looks bring to mind a savvy, self assured femme, confident and unafraid of that gorgeous fringe and fuss that ups the ante. That is, assuming you can peel your eyes away from those lovely boots in the first place.
