We’re pretty much poised and ready to shop the Altuzarra for Target collection when it hits Net-a-porter.com on 14 September (that’s only nine days away, people!). We did, however, manage to take a break from practising our speedy online shopping skills to hang with the celebs at the launch of the collection in New York.
With NYFW in full swing, there were plenty of A-listers in town to help Joseph Altuzarra celebrate his collaboration with the US high-street store, following in the footsteps of fashion heavyweights Phillip Lim, Prabal Gurung, Zac Posen and Rodarte. Those collections famously sold out within seconds of dropping online, and by the looks of the starry launch, this one won’t be any different.
We spied the likes of Naomie Harris, Keri Russell, Elisa Sednaoui, Derek Blasberg and Man Repeller blogger Leandra Medine, all browsing the rails and choosing their fave pieces from the range. We also spotted Naomi Watts posing with Joseph himself, before selecting the £25 embroidered jumper as her No 1 item. Clearly a girl after our own hearts.
Naturally, everyone was clad in Altuzarra for Target. We were particular fans of Naomi’s slinky, red wrap dress, while Keri’s contrast-sleeve trench is a trans-seasonal success story (and under £100!). Special style kudos goes to Naomie Harris for pulling off the snake-print dress we’re coveting. We’ll be following her lead with a pair of metallic courts and a geometric clutch. That is, of course, if we manage to get our hands on these bargainous beauties. We’re back to practising our shopping skills for the rest of the day…
