No. 21. Resort 2016.

Mon. 06/08/2015.

First things... The styling of Alessandro Dell'Acqua's No. 21 Resort collection Look Book was Tragic! Let's get that out of the way first... if the clothes details were barely even visible in some shots, in the others the model looked like she was Drunk and Abode Displaced (Nice Speak for "HOMELESS!")  Secondly, the clothes were such a deranged Hodgepodge assembly of misfit ideas that it barely registered that there was some theme involved! Cut to the Third insult.... The collection was Boring. Dead Boring! I am one of Dell'Acqua's biggest fans, and he has a Revolutionary Mind and one that works in completely different spaces of imagination than most, but he also has a mind that can sometimes overtake the good sense part of itself and stroll off onto merry tangents where every semblance of coherence of idea gets lost! 

This was a surefire case of the latter! Vaguely, we were seeing Sailor girls (hence all the Stripes and Matelot buttons) sailing off to somewhere in Darkest Africa. Then, it would seem to the Amazon Rainforest or the Caribbean Tropics. Who Knows. Who The Fuck Could TELL!?! Suffice it to say, if you were looking for some interesting and oddball twists on the classics and basics of a Resort Wardrobe, you'll find those pieces in this collection amongst all the lunacy. If, by some chance, you were looking for a One-Stop shop for all your Resort desires... Well, Keep on Sailing. There's Nothing like that to be found here! 

That's All.
