Altuzarra A/W 2016
Scene setting: Calling out director Jim Jarmusch’s gothic romance ’Only Lovers Left Alive’ as a source of inspiration for the season, Joseph Altuzarra provided an ethereal tone to his show by installing a birdcage-like gazebo in the centre of the runway, which his models passed through.
Mood board: An eclectic pastiche of Indian paisley prints, frenetic florals and more exotic Moroccan and Turkish inspired textiles infused the collection with a bohemian, yet luxurious feel. Finished with pearls, glittering sequins and velvet trim, the look was individualistic and designed to reflect the world we live in.
Finishing touches: Altuzarra’s Ghianda handbag collection was expanded to include hobo, across-body and saddle bags. Teamed with luscious leather knots or elegant braiding, they are the idea companion for the label’s elegant, but far from boring style.
