Altuzarra Fall 2012: The Boots are Everything

Fairchild Archive

The Scene: A rickety loft space in New York City's Chelsea neighborhood. The floors were covered in patchwork tapestries and the lighting was warm and low.

The Clothes: Joseph Altuzarra designs for a mature woman who has money to spend, so there were lots of gorgeous coats and plenty of skirt suits, including a rich navy one that would look amazing on Michelle Obama. (Just sayin'.) There were also dresses and skirts made with printed fabric in Indian and Russian motifs and accented by jingly spangles.

What We Want to Buy: The spikey booties. (Brandon Holley, our EIC, is obsessed.)
