Highlights: In their first show at SPFW (the brand was veteran at Fashion Rio), the Acquastudio sought inspiration in the world of haute couture to create a retelling of his own story. Esther Bauman joined their party dresses sartorial elements, which appear in more structured fabrics, added a further element navy, in which the brand defines as “navy couture.” Studying the work of Jean Paul Gaultier, the designer saw “could do a beautiful job of stripes with my biases, making geometric designs with varying zibelines” as she told FFW just before the start of the parade; Chanel obviously came the pearls, embroidery used in profusion in the parts themselves, even in the collars and huge round glasses. Despite all the hand work of craftsmanship, characteristic of the work of the brand, this season, the look is more “real”. As Esther said: “I tend to make things more conceptual, and when the parade ended November, I said, ‘The next I’ll do more with your foot on the ground.’”
