Milan Spring 2011: No. 21

Alessandro dell'Aqcua is doing really awesome things with his new label No. 21. This season he experimented with romanticism but still through the minimalist vibe he presented for fall. The bold color palette of last season was replaced with softer pastels and drapier fabrics to match. The khaki suit is the perfect amount of relaxed (and I'm totally going to pretend that she's wearing a skirt and not cropped palazzo pants or something because that would totally be NOT good). The second look is nothing new, but there's something really charming about the wallpaper-ish print on the top. Long black dresses are obviously part of my witchyvibez and I actually always love a drop waist situation.

Matching printed separates are really the ultimate luxury.
"Outside" pajamas.
Give me.

This one was definitely my favorite look in the collection. The ease of the maxi skirt with the pleats that are spilling all over is cool and then when executed in tomato red, the whole thing becomes oddly elegant. I want to wear secretly glamorous stuff like this every day.

Hi! I love the No.21 colection too. Also I love the Brioni colection by Alessandro dell'Aqcua, it's very minimalist but it looks like very elegant.

Gorgeous! I love that tomato-red colour. Kinda off-beat elegant with the nude blouse, but so flowing and feminine. I'm with you - would like to wear every day too! ;) xx
