NYFW: Altuzarra

altuzarra nyfw ss13 manon heine drawing

Last fashion week Altuzarra showed a beautiful collection inspired by Corto Maltese (I did an illustration here), and this time his collection is even more mature, well cut and refreshing. Loads of people agree on the fact that Altuzarra showed a multitude of great details, perfect tailoring skills and new, exotic and pure lines, and so  the collection made a great impact.

I loved the cape-jackets (one day before the show, Ivania from Love Aestethics did a DIY post for a cape-jacket, here) but the most striking items were the nomad-inspired dresses that closed the show.

What did you think of Altuzarra’s collection? Do you crave those cape-jackets as well?

  1. Love the detail on this drawing!
    Heb je al eens iets getekend van de najaarscollectie van Dolce & Gabbana 2012-2013? Denk dat dat ook wel iets voor jou is, veel detail in de collectie (zie mijn blog).

    • Dankjewel 🙂
      En ja, die collectie vond ik helemaal te gek en ik wil ook graag een aantal looks tekenen, ben er tot nu toe helaas niet aan toe gekomen, dat komt als de shows voorbij zijn (nog drie weken!) en als ik een beetje heb bij geslapen 😛

    • Ben benieuwd Manon! 😀

  2. Hello Manon,
    I really like your illustrations. You really have some talent. I just started a blog last week. I linked it to your site! (see the “Links” section) My website does not have much on it for now. I live in NJ so I was fortunate to make it to NYC Fashion Week. I go to law school at Rutgers. We actually have an exchange program with your school, University of Leiden. Thanks . . .

  3. wow you r seriously talented! in love with so many sketches!

  4. Bonjour Manon,
    Un tout grand merci pour les gentils messages que tu laisses sur mon blog. Au risque de me répéter, j’aime beaucoup ton travail! Superbe!
    Alors pour répondre à ta question sur Altuzarra, je dis oui…mais pour les silhouettes légères. L’écharpe donne un quelque chose de différent, surtout avec les petits franges dorées…
    Je flash par contre sur les détails en écail. Voici ma sélection: http://www.fashionbyeba.com/2012/09/10/ny-fashion-week-ss13-report-1/ (à la fin du post 😉 )


  5. This was one of my favorite collections from Fashion Week
