About the designer


On top of being creative director for Rochas, Alessandro Dell’Acqua founded his own label N°21 in 2010. The Italian designer creates modern ready-to-wear by merging a women’s and men’s wardrobe. The designs are clean-cut and made of sophisticated materials. N°21 collections are contemporary and mainly focused on daytime wear. A few years ago, the label collaborated with Kartell to create the plastic ‘Knot’-sandal. Today you can still see hints of this type of bow detailing on many of Dell’Acqua’s shoe designs.

Collection autumn/winter 2017


As seen on the runway at No.21, a new feminine, American spirit is here for fall. Alessandro Dell’Acqua looked to Italian fashion muse Anna Magnani for inspiration at the dawn of his creations and blended her with a new-fangled Sylvia Plath. At the same time, Dell'Acqua let a tailored post–New Look Italian Catholic aesthetic combine with American varsity style.Textures and colours teamed up to sing an authentic and empowering melody, seasoned with statement hosiery. Contrasts all around, but sensibly balanced out in tune with the overarching Transatlantic theme. Soft power-dressing staples and flourishing colours such as rusty apricot, baby blue and red, contributed to a revival of dressing up, while chiffon dresses and loosely fitting sweaters were alternated with herringbone suiting, and skirts slightly embellished with Swarovski crystals and studs.
