Review Collection

Sex is rarely far from the surface at a Joseph Altuzarra show. The pink gingham of the first few outfits fooled you into thinking this was an unusual occasion on which he’d abstain, but if you looked closer the kinks became clear. An otherwise proper skirtsuit featured a dangerously high middle slit, and a perfectly pretty dress was gathered at the shoulders and tied loosely at the sides with ribbons trailing pearls, as if still askew from a tumble in the sheets. In real life and on the runway, that interplay of purity and provocation stokes desire. Altuzarra said he was looking at Rosemary’s Baby (Mia Farrow’s unmistakable, haunting lullaby soundtracked the show) and Barry Lyndon. “Both movies are so beautiful,” Altuzarra said, “but it’s an ill-fated, sinister beauty. Which I liked.”
