Cherries, Lemons, Flirt. Altuzarra SS17


I wanted something that felt happy, joyous, flirty, and fun” said Joseph Altuzarra backstage at his optimistic spring-summer 2017. The times we live now are complicated, so why should fashion be so serious? Ultimately, shopping should be a therapy, and sometimes you just want to buy colours and, most of all, pleasure. That was something I missed in the last few Altuzarra collections, and I’m extremely happy see it back in the designer’s newest outing. Berry prints on ruffled slip dresses were so, so cute, while the python leather coat with hand embroidered cherries was the show’s highlight. Altuzarra’s summer outing is sexy, too – ruffled bra styled with a faux-denim leather skirt (all in lemons!) is a favourite. Also, note the romantic tights, all in mini-roses and, again, mini-cherries. Who would thought that Altuzarra can be so frivolous? Rather than doing his signature business version of femme-fatale, Joseph definitely had something of a sweet, Italian dolce vita in his mind.







Would love to hear what you think!
