Moroccan Delight

Joseph Altuzarra isn't scared of a theme - he's tackled Pocahontas, birds of paradise and Edward Scissorhands. It's his deft way of turning a theme into something 'classy', for want of a better word that has aided his rise as a designer. A trip to Morocco with the fictional sailor Corto Maltese resulted in a cracking gauntlet of sharp blazers, elegant peacoats and cargo trousers. Any reference to Moroccan motifs were reined back with Altuzarra's singular vision for his chic, well-turned-out and strong woman.
