Alessandro Dell'Acqua - Milan Fall 2009
(MILAN) This designer has a particularly strong following of his native Italians, and Dell'Acqua's Fall collection was full of the sort of lifestyle pieces that take his woman from the trenches to the club. Fur is required. A loose, deconstructed mink coat worn over a fitted sweaterdress, or a hooded mink lining underneath a straightforward bomber. Then came the clubby frocks, all metallic and crystallized, whose heaviness was only counterbalanced by their small, lean shapes. (Very Posh.) When draped with a fur, well, the crowd went wild.
