NYFW AW16: 5 reasons to love Altuzarra


Altuzarra AW16

If the Altuzarra collection hasn’t been on your radar before now, it’s time to start tracking it. For AW16, it was full of covetable pieces that mixed the soft and hard, the light and the heavy and the simple and the decorative. Here are my top five picks from the show.

1. Flying high

The aviator jacket or coat is shaping up to be a key trend for AW16 and Altuzarra did it beautifully in traditional and non-traditional materials.

2. Nuts about knits

The collection’s simple knits threaded with leather ‘ribbon’ made a massive impact as did the simple sweaters with blanket stitch detail and fringe trims.

3. Shine on

The collection’s eveningwear was influenced by Indian textiles mixing sheer silks with traditional patterns picked out in sequins. Perfect for anyone wanting to make an alternative impact on the red carpet this year.

4. Print power

Tiny florals, geometrics and paisleys worked together for an effect that felt both traditional and modern.

5. Panel beaters

The panelled pants and skirts added a tougher, sportier edge to a collection that was otherwise full of soft and fluid pieces.
