Altuzarra Autumn Winter 2011

I wasn’t very impressed with this Altuzarra show. While I am sure the individual pieces have merit, the whole grunge theme and giant parkas thrown over see-through tops and skirts that look like they are falling apart doesn’t impress me.

I love…

an effortless wool coat suit.

I loathe…

a sloppy, cheap-looking parka.

a tacky grandfather sweater. I wouldn't buy that from a designer brand.

    Aww C’mon, Alexandra! I LOVED this Show – This is just the MASH-UP of American & Italian style that I ♥ – And wish more designers would understand…

    We can disagree sometimes, can’t we? And yes, it does sort of remind me of Italian women cause they alwyas wear those puffy parkas. +r at least they did a few years back.

    It’s kind of a weird collection. I like the pieces individually but the styling is wack. It missed the mark for me too.
