No. 21

Paris: Alessandro Dell’Acqua presented an effervescent, chic and modern collection for Pre-Fall 2014. Influences from menswear surfaced with military hues played against soft pales. Unexpected feminine flourishes adorned silhouettes that ranged from sleek and austere to flowing chiffon in cleverly orchestrated layers. The rich collection offered a modern, sharp mix of elements that is clearly the brand’s signature. – Lizzy Bowring
