N21 (Alessandro Dell'Acqua) Womenswear A/W10

Minimal silhouettes were injected with plumage, prints and pops of colour.

Dell'Acqua's signature camel and black palette was interspersed with flashes of torquoise, fuschia and print, in both leopard and ink-scratched florals. Although a Autumn/Winter collection, many of the garments were certainly not subjective to that season; black plumage dominated the backs of sheer green dresses with exposed chest panelling as well as loose-fit blouses tucked in to cropped trousers. Lace tops and high-waisted skirts were belted with fitted, knit cardigans; a reflection of their versatility and ability to transcend from one season to the next. N21 is the designer's birthday and lucky number, his faith in numerology has worked for this collection and hopefully for its future.
