Femme Fatale ; Altuzarra Fall Winter 2013
inspired by Altuzarra’s muse – the ingenious Carine Roitfeld, this collection picked up on her her love for fur and leather and looking powerful and sexy on a regular basis. Manon Leloup opened the show in a woman-in-charge worthy suit with padded hips and leather shoulders.
Dresses were spliced with zips left undone to reveal shear under-skirts
Accessorizing motorcycle jackets in black leather, fur mittens in black and white made an impact. The resulting look was something of a strung-out, post modern Cruella de Vil.
A beauty look that was almost heroin-chic topped off the rock and roll worthy runway looks inspired by cool paradigms Patti Smith and Kate Moss.
Makeup artist Tom Pecheux described the collection as “fucked up french ladies going shopping on the Avenue Montaigne” which hit the nail right on the head. In order to create the messy smokey eye he used MAC’s Fall Forecast Eye Palette. Hairstylist Paul Hanlon called the look ‘stringy’ emphasizing the grunge aspect of Altuzarra’s vision.
