MUST- HAVE COLLAB
Joseph Altuzarra tells us about his obsession-inspiring partnership with Target.
It’s happening: The latest—dare we say greatest?—designer collab for Target hits stores (and, for those wary of being trampled, NET-A-PORTER.com) on September 14. Joseph Altuzarra, 2014 CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year and master of the high slit, brings his sexy-sophisticated style to the mega-retailer via a want-it-all assortment of apparel, shoes and accessories based on iconic Altuzarra silhouettes (from $17.99, target.com).
BON VOYAGE “I always have the Altuzarra woman in mind: She’s sophisticated and not afraid to express herself through fashion. But this collection needed its own narrative, so it became about the Altuzarra woman travelling the world and taking inspiration from her experiences.” COOL INTENTIONS “I hope these pieces enable women to embrace their beauty and sexiness with confidence. To me, the collection is as much about how it looks on the outside as what it does on the inside.” NEW FRIENDS “I’m excited to get to know a new Altuzarra woman—and for women who may not be familiar with the brand to experience a slice of it at a fraction of the price.” # DESIGNERPROBLEMS “The biggest challenge of this collaboration was in the editing. I could have included twice as many pieces! It’s the
same issue I have with all my collections—there are always tons of ideas I want to try.”
