It always amazes me how Milan can produce collections as diverse as this sophisticated one from No. 21 and more kitsch examples that are regularly shown at houses like Moschino and Versace. Here, designer Alessandro Dell'Acqua showed an elegant take on sensuality. The collection was ladylike with an edge, and while subtlety was key this should not be mistaken for simplicity or a lack of imagination. He featured double-breasted coats slashed with metallics or with unfinished hems, shift dresses with careful pleating and tucks, many of which were layered over trousers. Even the colour palette reinforced the chic, considered vibe.
