One to Watch: Aquilano e Rimondi

Never over-estimate glamour, this must be the philosophy of design-duo Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi. Taking their prowess for couture from the helm of their ‘day job’ at  Gianfranco Ferré, they’ve created a sub-line known as Aquilano e Rimondi, a highly textured line with strong latin reference.

Notice the scrupulous attention to detail; the ruffles draped in the just right places and the embellishments on each piece precisely parallel. It’s no wonder they’ve been given the responsibility of revitalising Gianfranco; since they’ve been in charge, the line has been fresh every season.

The Spring/Summer 2010 collection puts an emphasis on the mini cocktail dress, but not for any occasion. These pieces are best when worn to the most exclusive events around the city, when you want to bedazzle the most powerful, and influential. The line creates a statement, while still remaining ultra-feminine.

Definitely at the top of my fashion list.
