The Altuzarra Spring 2015 Collection makes 5 strong statements to get your wardrobe through the coming spring. The always one-to-watch Altuzarra fashion house continues their reign as modern, fresh women’s clothing extraordinaire with a collection with equal parts preppy and bohemian roots. After a very long, but exciting, night at work it was a refreshment for the eyes to browse through these looks. I always appreciate the fusion of menswear with a soft feminine touch that graces Altuzarra’s work and gives it that extra finesse.
Not to mention, us young working gals will be quite content in these fun – yet office appropriate – fashions. And really, isn’t it about pleasing us? 😉
Allow me to introduce you to the 5 statement looks from Altuzarra Spring 2015 that will keep you going strong, all spring long!
Statement #1: Checkered Prints
With The Wizard of Oz as my all-time favorite film, I was bound to fall in love with these Dorothy appropriate blue checkered pieces. But, of course, they didn’t stop there. The show opened with an array of checkered pieces, from pencil skirts and shirt dresses – to blouses and blazers. A notable detail is the narrow sash tied at the waist, which while small – makes a large impact at anchoring these prints and keeping them from being too much.
Statement #2: Vertical Stripes
Vertical stripes are all the rage at New York Fashion Week this season, and they were definitely not absent on the Altuzarra catwalk. The crisp black and white cotton is clean and classic for spring. Angular cuts, plunging necklines and brown leather belts work to take them from everyday classics to something of a bit more interest and pizzaz.
Statement #3: Wide Mesh
Mesh has certainly been having it’s run in the fashion world, but for Spring 2015 Altuzarra creates their own spin on the trend with these strappy vests and pencil skirts. I love that these looks are embellished with leather flaps. It gives them an added cool-factor, as if the design alone wasn’t coolness enough.
Statement #4: All Black Never Gets Old
For the ultimate statement of chic, Altuzarra brings breathable fabrics to these all-black looks. I especially love the tailored vests and blazers. They work well on their own, but when paired with sheer tanks and maxi dresses, have an added sense of intrigue.
Statement #5: Maxi Dresses with Movement
A flowing maxi dress will never go out of style. That is the message spread through these ornate looks. I love the continuation of the tassel fringe from the sheer black numbers onto these pieces. It’s a small detail that breaks up the fabric, keeping it from being overpowering. The metallic trend also makes an appearance as an accent do these floral designs. Quite honestly, these maxi gowns are so fantastic I’m wanting to go back to the start of festival season!
