Altuzarra IS the up-and-coming hot ticket in town. We felt like we were in Vegas to see a boxing match as the young and the beautiful pushed and shoved for a glimpse of the runway looks from their front row seats. All to be the first to see what’s next, what’s hot and what’s new for Fall 2011! This time it was 90′s with a hint of ‘40’s glamour with parkas and silk dresses, wool trousers and sheer chiffon tanks, silver fringe beading and bias cut silk slip dresses, green hunter coats with raw edges and refined cashmere and silk. Textures were juxtaposed on the runway – silk vs. tweed, bugle bead vs. wool, fur stiletto vs. nylon parka…and this collection provided that opposites DO attract! The beauty look was pure grunge – winged eye liner and dark shadow, lips with dark berry saturation and nails texturized with a muted sheen of Super Matte for a skin-finish to match the 90’s stylings.
