Sharp tailoring was the focus—no surprise, given that Brioni is responsible for some of the finest-made menswear there is. But it wasn't all strict. Dell'Acqua loves lingerie fabrics, and feminine touches have always been the hallmarks of his own collections. So, there was lace in the mix, as well as subtle tone-on-tone embroidery at the neckline of a tunic dress. The designer is also a close observer of trends. Cases in point: the opening group of all-white looks, the long lengths, and some great flat sandals in braided leather. All in all, this was a step in the right direction.
