Altuzarra for Target Lookbook Inspiration

With the recent release of the Altuzarra for Target lookbook, my anticipation for the collection's release on September 14, 2014 is at an all-time high. A decidedly more grown-up collaboration compared to previous Target efforts, the Altuzarra for Target line (some of which will also be available on net-a-porter) features sexy and sleek '70s silhouettes, digital prints, killer heels, beautiful blouses, python prints, and gorgeous gowns. Altuzarra stays true to his seductive yet ladylike aesthetic with sophisticated thigh-slit pencil skirts, stiletto boots, and tailored blazers. In fact, many of the looks from the Altuzarra for Target lookbook appear to be inspired by recent Altuzarra runway looks. Let's take a closer look at ten such looks that bear striking similarities.

Altuzarra-for-Target-V-neck-Dress

This ladylike V-neck dress from resort 2015 shares an A-line shape and knee length with the Target version, and both looks also have plunging V-necks. 

Altuzarra-for-Target-Snake-Skirt

The thigh slit is an Altuzarra signature, and the sexy python print skirt from the Target collection echoes this spring 2011 runway style. 

Altuzarra-for-Target-Red-Velvet-Suit

If a tailored velvet suit in a deep shade of crimson is on your wish list, the Target version closely resembles this fall 2010 style with its slim, tailored silhouette. Pair with pointy heels and sleek hair for a maximum femme fatale factor.

Altuzarra-for-Target-Belted-Boho-Dress

Both the Altuzarra for Target boho dress and the resort 2014 dress above feature an A-line shape, belted waist, ties at the neckline, and embroidered details. 

Altuzarra-for-Target-Snake-Blazer

The python print shows up again in the tailored Altuzarra for Target blazer which looks to be inspired by this slightly more cropped jacket from spring 2011.

Altuzarra-for-Target-Pencil-Skirt-Sweater

Both of the looks above include thigh-slit pencil skirts, the appearance of blouses layered under sweaters, and bold colors with print mixing. 

Altuzarra-for-Target-Blue-Oxford-Shirt

An unbuttoned oxford blouse and thigh-slit skirt in black from the Altuzarra for Target collection mirrors this professional yet edgy look from the spring 2014 collection. 

Altuzarra-for-Target-black-Dress

An LBD is an essential part of the modern woman's wardrobe, and this tailored style from Altuzarra for Target, which features embroidered birds, looks comparable to this resort 2015 style. Both are body-hugging with thigh slits and V-necks, making them alluring.

Altuzarra-for-Target-Black-Suit

This tailored black suit from spring 2014 resembles the Altuzarra for Target suit, even down to the square shoulders and shiny lapels. 

Altuzarra-for-Target-Furry-Jacket

A big, fluffy black coat from the Altuzarra for Target lookbook brings to mind a more sumptuous style from fall 2010. It should be interesting to see how the runway-inspired textures translate into Target's lower price points and synthetic materials. Note how both looks are paired with a pencil skirt and sexy footwear.
