Alessandro Dell’Acqua Keeping His Chin Up

Despite the sudden closure of the Brioni women’s wear division, the designer bears no grudge.

CHIN UP: Despite the sudden closure of the Brioni women’s wear division that he designed, Alessandro Dell’Acqua bears no grudge and hasn’t ruled out working for other brands in the future. “If the occasion is important, why not?” mused the designer before his N.21 show. Dell’Acqua, who is the sole backer of the line, conceded the cancellation of the Brioni show and the termination of his consultancy contract did come as “a cold shower. All was ready, and I found out about it on August 5.”
