Aquilano.Rimondi RTW Spring/Summer 2013 collection!

Aquilano.Rimondi is a collection by Tommaso Aquilano and Romano Rimondi.
Aquilano.Rimondi's RTW Spring/Summer 2013 collection is really a combination of architecture and artistic hints. It reminds me of a trip I took to Barcelona. The city was so beautiful and alive and we went to a street filled with Gaudi's creations. It wasn't like anything I've ever seen; everything was designed and well put together. From the chairs to the entrance and the walls. Everything had something mosaic, some had black and white tiles with different colors in the middle and some had glass tiles where the sun would just shine right through it and that's what this collections reminds me of. Black and white go really well with a busy (or colorful) print and that's what makes these pieces so fun and bold. I also really liked the way he added volume to the dresses. Some he put like an umbrella, some in a peplum and some in layers. The red lips and the colorful statement shoes make the clothes even more daring.

Here are a couple of my favorite looks:

Here is the rest of the collection, so you can pick your favorites:

Tommaso and Romano were inspired by the Venice Carnival, couturier Roberto Cappucci and Fellini's La Strada for this seasons collection. It's always great to hear what designers were inspired by (if it's not obvious of course) because it reminded me of a trip and to someone else it will definitely mean something else! What did it mean to you?
Much Love,
