Visiting NYC last fall for the first time triggered the creative minds of ALTEWAISAOME to create a collection based on the cultural diversions of the metropolitan. Given the extensive number of impressions you get , the collection however proved to be very cohesive with less embellishments (sequins in blocking only, almost referencing to the sparkling skyscrapers) than previous seasons and with a glimmering dark green as the only accent colour among the neutrals. Instead the collection put focus on two other characteristics of the brand, voluminous silhouettes and meticulous detailing, this season being white linings and zippers that depending on if opened or closed would create cut out shapes of its own. Some cuts and silhouettes even crossed the line to avant garde, seen in an oversized, cowl neck in particular. Being known for their use of sporty influences in otherwise tailored clothing, ALTEWAISAOME this season continued to explore the possibilities of their design without abandoning their identity.
