(MILAN) Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi are masterful tailors who interpret detail just about better than anyone else in Milan. Their namesake Fall collection began with killer black dresses, each one wildly different in shape, tone and attitude. The angular shoulder abounded, with two jackets covered in beads and studded with plumes drew goosebumps from a crowd---tough to do after Prada. With each passing show, be it Ferré or their namesake line, Aquilano and Rimondi are making their case as the future of fashion in Milan. There were touches of Schiaparelli-esque surrealism in several pieces, including the shocking pink series (a Schiaparelli signature shade) beautifully shown in the last look, a velvet cocoon coat.
