Altuzarra

Joseph Altuzarra juxtaposed hard and soft as utility details such as epaulettes, straps and metal fastenings were seen alongside sheer asymmetrically cut tops, and figure-skimming, silk bias-cut dresses.

The look Joseph Altuzarra juxtaposed hard and soft as utility details such as epaulettes, straps and metal fastenings were seen alongside sheer asymmetrically cut tops, and figure-skimming, silk bias-cut dresses. The toughness of parkas and down-filled coats was balanced by feminine, full-length fur coats in a palette of tobacco, burnt orange, oyster and khaki green.

Key pieces The fur-lined hooded parka stood out, as did a black and white intarsia knit with a leather skirt, and a wool skirt with utility strap detailing.

Commercial appeal Altuzarra has been tipped by buyers as the darling of autumn 11, so this show should be a source for key trends. The collection was wearable yet maintained a directional interest. The oversized padded jacket will spawn copycat styles on the high street, as will the tough versus feminine aesthetic.
