Mood board: Alessandro dell'Acqua's formula for undone chic air-rocketed up a notch for winter with a collection that spun lady-like elegance together with sporty cool. The clothes were beautifully executed and intricately worked with architectural cutting and pleating.
Best in show: Artfully blending basic grey cable knits with regal looking gold brocade, dell'Acqua pulled the ultimate hybrid clothing moves, dazzling with dual sided dresses, coats and jumpsuits.
Finishing touches: Sloping crocodile low-calf boots were either completely flat and worn with slim gold pants or shiny with a square block heel that set off bouncing tiered ruffled skirts.
