The latest on designers who chose to go the bolder route
Social media serves as Maco Custodio’s makeshift runway for the debut of his latest leather slippers. The bespoke designer shares glimpses of his calfskin black-and-brown pair on Instagram, where he documents both the process and the finished product. While dubbed as a prototype, Custodio’s slippers give off a sleek, intricate finish, enough to tease a wanting crowd.
Italian designer Alessandro Dell’Acqua is breaking the rules this season with No. 21 pre-fall 2016 collection. The renegade designer once again bares his bravado with knits, silk, gold feathers, and oversized sequins, juxtaposed with military hues and floral prints.
