First Dibs: Altuzarra Resort 2015 Look 18

Published June 26, 2014

For Resort 2015, Joseph Altuzarra, the newest recipient of the CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year Award, played with preppy chic. There was preppy yachting-chic, with high-waisted white trousers paired with a tucked-in navy blouse or navy peacoat with a patriotic red collar. Preppy office chic came in the form of chain link-decorated below-the-knee skirts accompanied by white button-downs and blazers (one blazer even had a gentleman’s scarf sewn around the collar). This was followed by preppy evening-chic, with the final floor-length, draped black gown. But Altuzarra is not Ralph Lauren, and even preppy Altuzarra girls are sexy girls—the kind who like to rock deep-v necklines and thigh-high slits. One of the most versatile pieces was the above black dress. Gathered together at the base of the ribs with a velvet bow, it’s drop-dead, dinner date gorgeous.
