Alessandro Dell’Acqua’s latest menswear collection N°21 is a return to a certain “bourgeois attitude” with the elimination of sportswear references and logo-heavy streetwear that dominated the industry’s runways for years.
The collection includes undercurrents of rebellion, sensuality, and nonchalance, nods to his favorite decade, the ‘90s, with contrasting stitching positioned haphazardly on suits, shirts in oxford cloth or striped patterns, and coats in cool wool with chiffon flowers or feathery details for a dandier vibe.
The collection also includes sequins for a seductive liquid effect and marine theme with navy peacoats and chunky knits.
The most striking element is the introduction of a bourgeois feminine staple: the twin-set, here for men, which the designer has declined in numerous iterations between eccentricity and conformity, often adorned with a brooch as a sign of wealth and status.
