There were leather bodycon dresses and mini skirts galore as well as enviable outerwear (oh, and strong references to Balenciaga). But if you think all that leather equals a hard-edged, black and white, urban collection think again. Don't get me wrong: the styling was hard--models had bare faces with strong blackened in eyebrows and their hair came down in a thick curtain over their eyes-- but the tight leather dresses and skirts were inset with panels of bright tropical prints. That Altuzarra was feeling the tropics was clear as models walked in front of a backdrop of lush jungle greens.
It's hard to get the fast-paced high-powered city girl to wear anything other than black and leather but Altuzarra might get her to wear color and prints come spring.
