After winning the CFDA Swarovski Award for Womenswear and delivering on that promise with a Fall collection that landed right at the tippy tops of most editors’ best of the season lists, one could only guess that being Joseph Altuzarra these days comes with pressure most mortals would crumble under.
As could be expected from such a fete, the crowd pedigree was top-tier, with designers, industry insiders, models and the young Hollywood starlets all making the rounds, schmoozing between drinks and the chicken pot-pie main course (nice touch CVFF).
Joseph Altuzarra’s show moved fast. Kinetics is what seemed to be most at play. Working with a tropic Hawaiian print on white and black leather, it was a techno-fabric urban jungle explosion, but a calculated one.
