Editorial

The ruches you don’t expect. But then this whole collection from Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi was unexpected. Where you expected linear, rigorous and clean, there was a drawstring, a flounce and sequins. It looked like minimalism but wasn’t. A white shirt was an excuse to add organza transparencies or sprinklings of crystals. White was the main colour, along with black, nude and navy. The appearance of pattern was a nod to Andy Warhol florals. Transparencies were never pure: covered with rhinestones or inserted into sparkly minis, they were the magnifying glass to see the designs or were puckered and therefore opaque. The duo’s new bag, the BAG-A.R., was also on show in white, black, blue and powder pink.
