Men’s – Gentler, Masculine Side. No21 AW16


Sunday 17th was a really good day for Alessandro DellAcQua – in the morning, he presented his autumn-winter 2016 collection for men; in the evening, he was at the opening inauguration of N21‘s first, Milanese flagship store, where the industry’s most influential people appeared. The store, located on Via Santo Spirito, perfectly captures Alessandro’s vision at N21 – definitely, the new menswear collection will look good on the hangers next season, too. If talking of the clothes, the designer played with layers and textiles, introducing unexpected, gentle combination of chiffon, macramé lace, crepe de chine and animalier prints. The collection had a signature, laid-back (even grunge!) coolness about it, with those over-sized pockets on khaki hoodies and leopard-print coats. But what truly stole my heart in N21’s winter outing was the shearling story – styled with satin varsity jackets and burgundy polo shirts underneath, they felt slightly decadent and masculine simultaneously. Without much effort, Dell’AcQua knows how to make a guy covet his clothes.







  1. WOW I’ve never met N21 before but know after this, i think i became the biggest fan, like i love u and this brand soooo much, thx for fabulous post like always
