Joseph Altuzzara, winner of this year’s CFDA Award for Womenswear Designer of the Year, is known for designing clothes that combine French style with an American practicality. He launched his brand, Altuzzara, in 2008. It is very much influenced by his multicultural upbringing and his international education in fashion. Altuzarra was raised by a Chinese-American mother and a French Basque father.
Target’s newest designer collaboration is with Altuzzara, a designer worn by Michelle Obama, Julianne Moore, Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o. He is a big figure on the current New York Fashion scene as well as the red carpet. Altuzarra for Target is a 50-piece capsule collection of sexy dresses, tops, bottoms and accessories including lingerie.
I’ve highlighted my picks from the collection which launched just yesterday. It is also being sold in another luxury e-retail site but at a higher price than Target’s. Like the #7 dress is $142 there but only $69.99 in Target.
So I’ve put links directly to Target, since they are my site partners. I don’t know how long the items will be available on line, just act fast because these things go real fast. Philippine-shoppers, you can use your local credit card and have your Target purchases delivered for free to a US address. That’s what I do. I send my online purchases to my relatives or friends and deal with shipping later.
