Are you of age? Meet No.21, Alessandro Dell’Acqua’s new and first project after parting ways with his eponymous brand in 2010, and no, you don’t have to show some ID.
Ethnic, tribal, exotic, folkloric: whatever you call it, far-off flair is a recurring theme as designers plunge into Resort and look forward to Spring. While some bags lean towards kitschy and over-the-top, when done right, they exude a well-balanced vibe I think of as ethno-chic.
How are you liking 2014 so far? It’s about to get even better! We’re coming to the end of the holiday sale season, which means one thing – that the discounts are the best they’ve been yet.

In case you’d forgotten, here’s when Alexander Wang is at his invaluable best: when he makes practical basics for the girl who likes to keep her cool.
