Though it’s no longer directed by the fashion designer whose name it still uses, Alessandro Dell'Acqua continues to produce peerless men’s and women’s clothing that captures the essence of Italian style. For women, Alessandro Dell'Acqua serves up a collection of slinky little black dresses, printed corsets, satin skirts, ultra-feminine perfumes, and Rouge: a line of leather sneakers accented with zippers, buckles, and other edgy embellishments. For men, the label designs lace-up trainers, cropped pants, zip-up jackets in neutral tones, and classic trench coats that mix continental refinement with London rocker chic. The original Alessandro Dell'Acqua, for his part, continues to design clothing through his label N°21.
Alessandro Dell’Acqua debuted his signature prêt-a-porter collection at Milan Moda Donna in March, 1996. Combining sharp tailoring with smoldering femininity, it heralded his arrival as a new and important Italian designer. Dell’Acqua’s career began at the age of 23 when he was given a worldwide contract to design for Genny (a leading Italian fashion house) and went on to work for a multitude of top brands including Iceberg, Les Copains and Mariella Burani. Inspired by leading women in Italian cinema, (Sofia Loren, Anna Magnani and Monica Vitti) Dell’Acqua’s strong and sensual aesthetic has earned him the honor of the “Oscar della Moda” from the Italian fashion community twice: in 2002 for “New Women’s Designer,” and in 2004 for “Leading designer of ‘The New Femininity’”. Jennifer Lopez, Iman and Charlize Theron are just a few of the famous bombshells to explode the Red Carpet in designs by Dell’Acqua and his signature pieces have been featured everywhere from Vogue magazine to the New York Times. Alessandro Dell’Acqua is sold in top stores worldwide and is a sexy and exciting addition to Gilt Groupe.
