N°21 – Numero Ventuno by Allessandro Dell’Acqua
N°21 is fashion design project by Allessandro Dell’Acqua. The world-famous fashion designer worked at various times of his career as a creative director at La Perla, Malo, Brioni, Pietro Pianforini and as head designer of his eponymous brand Allessandro Dell’Acqua.
His latest and most successful project as a designer bears the name “Numero Ventuno”, which is also his birthday date.
Since autumn 2010, N ° 21 has thrilled the fashion scene with its “street style mixed with couture” look worldwide. Fashion editors, stylists, fashion bloggers and fashionistas choose N°21 for fashion shows and everyday wear. The look is young, trendy, fresh and always with exciting details.
The trend towards the sporty leisure look has meanwhile kept several seasons in the collections. Allessandro Dell’Acqua takes it as an inspiration and combines it with a sensual aesthetic. This blend creates a great fresh and wearable look. The designer himself says about his vision that N°21 woman is real, sexy and definitely not boring. She knows how to play with masculine elements, so she adds an extra seductive touch to her look.
A poplin shirt in men’s cut with a Swarowski crystals application on the collar is styled with a pleated skirt and pin-up tights. Dell’Acqua likes it relaxed and always with a skilful style break. However, he always uses high-quality materials with a certain carelessness – cut-off cotton chinos are worn with a macrame embroidered bomber jacket, parka gets lace inserts. A mix of structures, shapes and materials are very characteristic of Dell’Acqua design for N°21.
His muses are women like style icon Alexa Chung or singer Soko.
“They have a very individual style, a little out of the way and unique,” says Allessandro Dell’Acqua. “That’s what I like.”
