Altuzarra’s Speing/Summer 2022 collection is marked by arts and crafts details-knitting, crochet, and tie dye-transformed into a daily uniform for the modern woman. With flowing dresses, relaxed suiting, and contrasting textures, the collection displays designer Joseph Altuzarra’s ability to synthesize comfort with his signature sensuality.
