No 21 A/W 2016
Mood board: Alessandro Dell'Acqua’s No 21 label is catnip to fashion's rip-off artists who continue to copy his quirky, off beat feminine sportswear faster than he does. Good thing he has so many ideas. This season the new look was tougher and edgier, like an off-duty musician who can't be bother to wash or brush her hair... ever.
Best in show: Remarkably, Dell'Acqua still understands how to create deeply covetable items that shake with luxurious sophistication. The knitwear this season was exceptional, especially the boxy oversized sweaters inlaid with huge chunks of high bling crystals and plastic embroideries.
Finishing touches: The accessories were utilitarian and off beat: there were great satin knapsacks, grandpa's blocky shoes that looked customised with a glue gun and chunky crystals, while saggy pantyhose also got the sparkle treatment.
