Alessandro Dell’Acqua’s No. 21 Fall 2012 collection produced an extreme mixture of looks that I can’t wait to see on the likes of Diane Kruger and Zoe Saldana.
On the one hand we saw sexy ultra-feminine lightweight dresses with peek-a-boo bras and negligees, and on the other hand sporty tweed military-inspired layered pieces which are perfect for someone like Alexa Chung.
The designer cited Queen Elizabeth in her private life, gardening in the country as his inspiration – done in a contemporary way of course.
Apart from the dresses we saw boxy coats, bejewelled skirts, slouchy tweed pants and layered tops.
Key accessories included oversized embellished leather gloves and a newly launched footwear venture for the designer who served up ankle-strap peep-toes and pumps.
Who I See Wearing This Collection: Diane Kruger, Zoe Saldana, Alexa Chung, Rooney Mara and Anna Paquin
