Aquilano.Rimondi’s new collection consists of sensual femininity in confrontation with men’s apparel. This dualism is expressed not only through the influence of business suit but also in an intimate contact of two epochs. That is how sensitive 30’s faced minimalistic 90’s on one catwalk.
The whole collection is about volume, layers and oversizes. Feminine fluid volumes mixed with relaxed unbuttoned shirts and shirt dresses with a masculine fit set the atmosphere.
For summer Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi have chosen a lot of silks, poplin and of course sequins.
The designers wanted to underline femininity through scarf-constructed dresses and asymmetric skirts with raw cuts.
The colour palette is taken from the pragmatic business suit and consists of blue, grey and white shades with a contrasting orange and « energetic » blue. The femininity was shown more in forms such as long sleeves, cut-outs and lengths.
Spring-summer season in Aquilano.Rimondi is going to be about brogues with pointy toe and pure lines. The theme of men and women’s encounter is also shown in the line of accessories with long belts which wrapped the masculine shirts and outerwear and bracelets to accentuate women’s sensuality.
The most feminine and sensible part was played by asymmetric hem dresses in sequins at the end of the show to remind that girls run the world.
