Created in 2010 by Italian designer Alessandro Dell'Acqua, No. 21 is a full expression of his love of timeless, feminine design, the name referencing both his birthday and favourite number. Established after an illustrious career in the fashion industry and leaving behind creative direction of his eponymous label Alessandra Dell'Acqua, his new venture seeks to design modern pieces with directional detailing. In January of 2014, after much demand, No. 21 presented the brand's first men's collection during Pitti Immagine Uomo. Rich hues, contrasting textures and unexpected embellishment create a recognisable aesthetic across each collection, from knitwear and dresses to coats.
