The go-to fashion house for masculine-come-sultry silhouettes. The Fall-Winter 2019 collection was inspired by film noir and 198s movie Dressed to Kill. Here is what creative director Alessandro Dell’Acqua told L'Officiel Arabia about the new collection:

"It all comes from an impression I got watching Brian De Palma’s 1980 film Dressed to Kill again. I was particularly struck by the atmosphere the director created both with his voluptuous use of the movie camera and with the passionate, sensual music of Pino Donaggio, mounting a true symphony of terror on the screen. I wanted to recreate a similar mood, sending down the catwalk a strong woman who clearly craves [appeal] and who, with equal awareness, exalts her own ambiguity through clothes that reveal her real intentions. No more pretence. I produced a “film noir” where the dress is an authentic clue to the mystery to divulge. I designed transformational clothes, for like the women who wear them. They’re ambiguous."
