Altuzarra for J.Crew Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund Collection

April 18, 2012


Launching tomorrow morning is the Altuzarra for J.Crew VOGUE/CFDA Fashion Fund collection.   The thirteen piece line Joseph Altuzarra designed for the contemporary American label was inspired by “Brigitte Bardot in Saint-Tropez and French preppy style,”  and has a lot of gingham prints and nautical stripes.

“Well, it was a really interesting project because it was like a conflation of their language–or of their world–[and] of our world and putting it together,” said Altuzarra of his collection.

The collection is sophisticated and a little cheeky with the designer’s aesthetic infused into the collection.  Favorites among the collection are a gingham button down shirts with a feminine tie at the front, nautical striped sweaters with frayed holes for a bit of a preppy punk edge and a gingham dress we’re sure to be seeing at the various horse races this season.

The collection will be available for purchase on on April 19 and at the J.Crew on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan on April 23.  Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund runners-up Pamela Love and Creatures of the Wind also have collection that will be launching at J.Crew later this year.
