Altuzarra Resort 2020

Joseph Altuzarra loves a cinematic reference. For resort, he looked to “3 Women,” Robert Altman’s dreamy, dangerous tale of a bizarre personality exchange between two of the titular characters. Fashion plays a big role — one woman obsessed with style and artifice, the other, a meek church-mouse type, with both personalities telegraphed to perfection in their clothes.
Altuzarra drew less from that disturbing dichotomy than from the film’s physical setting, a Southwestern desert town. From there, he took his palette, which was dominated by earth tones injected with splashes of brights, as well as, he said, “the general American heritage of Western wear”; from 1977, the year of the film’s release, he took whiffs of retro from the relaxed, body-con silhouettes so prevalent during that decade.
The trope worked well for the suitings that are consistently the brand’s top-selling category. That said, Altuzarra applied the suiting concept loosely, in unmatched tailored pieces such as a shrunken beige jacket worn over pants cut lean and flared, a row of buttons running up several inches from the hem creating a bit of unfussy interest. Speaking of unfussy, a utilitarian horse blanket inspired a sturdy-chic wrap skirt paired with a cropped sweater with various semiprecious

‘Game of Thrones’ Goes Fashion Week: Front Row at Altuzarra

“Your show on Amazon was great,” a paparazzi shouted at Christina Ricci outside Spring Studios. The actress was on her way inside the Altuzarra show, and it seemed her new Amazon series “Z The Beginning of Everything” was following her.
“People seem to really like it – even the photographers like it,” she said, from inside the show space. The good reception means a likely second season. “We have to wait to get our pickup and then we start developing the second season. You have more freedom,” she said of working with a streaming service like Amazon. “If it makes sense for them economically, then you have the freedom to do it [like a film], should you choose to. And that’s what’s amazing about that. It’s all about the work, the final product, so they support artists and whatever they need to get that great work.”
The frequent showgoer was making her first appearance at New York Fashion Week due to some snowstorm delays. “I was supposed to go to Thakoon but there were weather issues. I wasn’t in Manhattan and I was trying to get in and just couldn’t,” she said. That aside, she’s been following the action remotely. “I’m
