Alessandro Dell’Acqua always inspires with his gracefully masculine and boyishly feminine designs for No. 21. We love his playful clashes, of patterns, silhouettes and material, that make us want to mimic with items from our own closets – like a tea-length skirt worn under a belted, oversized t-shirt or a floral jacquard mini skirt paired with a collared gingham shirt. Or a sheer silk skirt worn under another sheer silk dress, making it that much cooler and less delicate. And Mr. Dell’Acqua, you’ve officially sold me on the color yellow. It’s not a color that particularly entices me but combined with light blue, brown and black? Well, okay then!
