A 360-degree tour of the shows, from the invitations to backstage reports, grooming trends and venue highlights
Joseph Altuzarra's femme fatales came packaged with sleek, heart-shaped buns in hairnets this season as the designer evoked the Upper West Side good life, as seen in Roman Polanski's cult hit, Rosemary's Baby. Models sauntered down the runway donning girlish gingham suits in baby pink and blue, though there was certainly nothing naive about any of the looks. Figure-skimming pencil skirts were spliced daringly high, just as ethereal tulle slip dresses and button-front shirts plunged daringly low. Altuzarra created a beautiful, albeit slightly sinister, tension in the collection with clever reveals of skin; some skirts were laced together with ribbon, while lattice leather pieces first made a graphic impact before giving way to the suggestions of flesh peeking through. The designer finished things off with a series of thin, panier dresses, which were trimmed with pearls, but were anything but uptight. Effortless, revealing and entirely in control, this is a portrait of modern femininity if there ever was one.
