Les Copains S/S 2013

MULTICULTURAL MIX
Milan: For his second collection for sportswear label Les Copains, Alessandro Dell’Acqua gathered a diverse mix of influences, describing the result as a “melting pot.” He borrowed blue and white sailor stripes from France, tennis skirts and dresses from activewear, and a vibrant shade of blue from the Masai tribe. Dell’Acqua held together what could have been an incongruous group of inspirations with his simple shapes and sparing use of embellishment. Knits were the obvious highlight. Chunky, loosely knit sweaters and skirts were the best of the bunch, though the fine-gauge pieces – some featuring intarsia designs – were lovely too. –Joanna Manganaro

Hey just wanted to give you a brief heads up and
let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly.
I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the
book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little
bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog.
A great read. I will certainly be back.
