Alessandro dell’Acqua’s 2 year old line, N°21, is heavy on simplicity and wearable street style. F/W 2012 showed masculine fabrics and boxy cuts on a feminine silhouette. Dell’Acqua strives for a perfect balance between the male (bomber jackets in tweed), and female (short hemlines, LBD’s), keeping it all clean and modern. Shown with virtually no accessories and minimal hair and makeup, this collection was interestingly inspired by Queen Elizabeth, in her garden. Pretty hard to imagine but if I try hard enough my imagination will hopefully kick in. Now, for all you shoe lovers, this collection was also a soft launch for his new footwear collection, having just signed a 2 year licensing agreement with Italian shoemaker Kalliste.
