Joseph Altuzarra kept his clothes playful, flirty and light. Fruity prints, consisting of cherries, blueberries and lemons were a constant through the show and were seen on super skimpy bra tops and lots of feminine ruffled slip dresses. Python skin came in various forms, with my favorite being a summer jacket boasting a black & white checked border with red lace on it and a blue, denim printed python skirt with embroidered lemons. I love how effortless those silhouettes looked but I’m sure embroidery on delicate exotic skin couldn’t have been easy.
Altuzarra continued his tryst with Gingham from his SS15 collection which I was a huge fan of (you can read the old review here). Monochrome checked kick flare pants, slanting side slit pencil skirts in pink, and a beautiful blue shirt dress (with a contrasting python bralet), all in a fun tablecloth print were an absolute hit. The designer added a little bit of utilitarian glamour too, with cargo jackets featuring contrasting piping. One has to also take into account the little detailing on the clothes. Case in point: printed fabric that was intertwined within the holes on a leather belt and casually flailing about. Sexy silhouettes continued through striped off the shoulder knit tops and body hugging dresses. Finally, there were evening dresses. Not the restricting, and super tight kinds. But flowy, with multiple ruffled tiers out of which, a reptile print number with bright sequins and cherries embellished on them still lingers in my memory.
Accessories included colourful oversized earrings (I'm going to hunt every e-commerce platform to find them), semi- circle purses mainly in exotic skin and soft bucket bags with a bit of a twist. Most of the shoes were open toe sandals with low heels which matched perfectly with the effortless clothes he created. All in all, it was a solid collection that will be seen on a lot of the fashion flock next season.
