Altuzarra Fall 2011: Dissecting The Runway

A perfect parka is just about the only cover-up you need to own this winter, and if you’ve yet to invest in one now is definitely the time to do so. This sporty-chic coat is one of the season’s most statement-making layering pieces, especially when its bulkiness is streamlined with a sexy, sleek ensemble underneath.

For fall and winter, no one put this look together better than Joseph Altuzarra. His use of the parka on the runway effortlessly transformed a functional winter coat into something with much more power and panache. And although we do love this particular look of a sheer blouse and tailored skirt suit, a polished trouser, button down and blazer or sweater can work just as well worn under an oversized parka.
