    while i love the juxtaposition of the hard edge with the frilliness, there's something missing here. it kind of reminds me of old john galliano for dior which is a HUGE compliment. but there's something missing here i can't tell what....

    That is what stands out the most to me as well, beautifully done. Also love all the details and draping. The problem for me is it verges on being dowdy somehow, and usually his clothes are sexier.

    This is really really gorgeous! I've never heard of him or his label. What's the background?

    Ah no wonder. It looked very Carine worthy and this explains the fantastic casting!

    I like quite a few of the pieces but that's probably because it reminds me kinda, a lot, of Jonathan Saunders S/S 08. With the straight lines, the poncho-esque dresses, the whites and beiges......

    for further bio informations :
    - Joseph Altuzarra was born in Paris (went to Alsacienne school. One of the best school in Paris).
    - studied in Philadelphia, Swarthmore.
    - Worked at Givenchy, MJ (6 months) and Proenza Schouler (1 yr) and Nicolas Cairo.
    - This is his third collection.
    - Vanessa Traina is one of his first customer/muse.
    - Tom Ford is his idol in Fashion Industry.
    - Carine Roitfeld wore on his Winter 2009 coat ! which is good for a young designer !

    here is the website, by the way : http://josephaltuzarra.com/
    Can be found at Barneys (NY + LA), Colette (Paris), Joyce (Japan), DSM (Ldn) etc.

    I'm wondering if he is not a close friend of Julia Roitfeld .....
