In recent seasons, Alessandro Dell’Acqua has toned down the steam and ramped up the quality of his clothes, a pursuit he carried forth for spring.  
He also went for diversity, both in terms of shapes and detailing, in well-executed stand-alone pieces. His use of fringe and plumage, for example, lavished on short sheaths and minis worn under belted satin blazers, differed significantly from the Peruvian-looking crocheted details adorning chunky cardigans and swingy raincoats. Dell’Acqua also mixed in a few lingerie flourishes such as bras peeking from under black and nude tulle dresses. It was a wide-ranging show that nonetheless held together as a collection, one that’s sure to have an across-the-board appeal.
