Aquilano & Rimondi Catwalk Fashion Show Milan Womenswear FW2013
What better way to portray Alice in Wonderland than by sending out a collection full of hearts and checks? Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi took the literal way of translating their theme for fall/winter 2013/2014. Their ‘Alices’ sporting high buns and bright blue eyeshadow in a series of forties inspired Wonderland pieces. Ultra feminine knee lenght skirts were paired with peplum tops that had cute puffy sleeves and statement shoulders. Heart shapes could be found on any top or bottom as sequined skirts and embroidered dresses were given a sparkly treatment. Even some of the menswear inspired pieces, like tweed jackets and a long woolen coat got the designer’s feminine touch by in the form of stitches, buttons and added waist belts. A color palette of emerald green, navy blue, red, gold black & white and metallics; a fairytale brought back to life.
