I have never seen such a strong and confident collection before. It seemed that each model oozed power and fearlessness.
Garments made of leather, fully or partially, created the warrior imression but it wasn’t fierce, it was sexy and even a bit feminine. All this looked a little strange as most designers moved a softer way for Autumn/ Winter 2010/ 2011 season and tried to make more flowing silhouettes and fragile forms. Joseph Altuzarra decided he wanted strength and modern reality, full of harshness.
The Edward Scissorhands was another motif of the collection. Stitches came everywhere. Some were taut, revealing just a flash of skin between the curving seams of a pair of narrow pants; and there were others that were loose. Even the boots were occasionally slashed to reveal the ankle.
