MFW S/S 2012 – Aquilano.Rimondi

Aquilano Rimondi SS12
Roberto Rimondi and Tomasso Aquilano, better known as Aquilano.Rimondi, have seduced me. Every one of their poetic, Renaissance-inspired pieces were tended to with feminine artisanal detail – a choice that will take every customer to a luxurious place that balances the sculpted with the sensual. Hand-sewn pearls, molded tops, fluidly tiered pleats, marble sculpture-like draping, and more.

Though they have had an incredibly busy week – also showing as the designers behind Fay, the Tods-owned outerwear label, and creating a 20th-anniversary collection for Piazza Sempione – their collection was full of entrancing vigour. A refreshing injection of contemporary elegance.
