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....
It feels so Amish somehow.
some backstage shots from today
those shoes look amazing.
I don't know what to think of it just yet
At first i though OH god no. But its growing on me, but still doesnt look appealing for this time.. But maybe in the future..... or in history.
It's by Gianvito Rossi!
i dun know how to say this collection is gd or bad.......
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.
the shoes and dresses are great
This is really really gorgeous! I've never heard of him or his label. What's the background?
^Altuzarra is supported by the Vogue Paris Team ...
it has an article in their sept. issue and Carine Roitfeld said it was her new designer crush last season ...
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......
