Pre-fall 2017 season kicked off a week ago and the first collection, which caught my eye, comes straight from Joseph Altuzarra‘s studio. According to Altuzarra, next autumn won’t be a reason to forget blooming nature. Specifically, the Pre-Raphaelite take on nature appealed to the designer, who sent out a line of toned botanical dresses and flower embroidered knits. The silhouettes were flowy and loosely fit, unlike spring-summer 2017 Wild at Heart collection, which feautured sultry bras and pencil skirts printed with cherries and lemons. However, Altuzarra woman isn’t just into romantic flowers: she has an obsession with well-tailored jackets (in red, if possible), business-smart capes and all-knit looks. It’s a wise collection for autumn, after all. And if we’re speaking of autumn, then let’s note all those gorgeous knee-lenght boots. They look irrestible, whether in black or pale lilac.
