Aquilano.Rimondi chose to focus on the simplicity of the line in black & white. Elementary geometry and two-colour stripes. Oversize volumes, asymmetric shapes, precise cuts and an understated yet high-impact structure. The inspiration was Joan Mirò and his primary colours, so pure and strong in red, blue and also black. The graphic was the dominant component of the collection. Stripes invaded cotton, poplin and jersey. All-over prints bore the names of the two designers on skirts, shirts and sheer trenches. Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi injected sportier pieces with an elegant appeal: white T-shirts had beads and sequins in geometric designs, long dresses were covered with beaded mesh, slim trousers had contrasting colour side bands. Shirts were extra-large while jackets had metallic details. Tailoring allowed art and sport to come together.
