Alessandro Dell’Acqua mixed broad sailor stripes with tribal-inspired patterns in his second collection for Les Copains, injecting the preppy Italian label with a dose of athletic chic. “I like playing with sporty casual, in this case, with an ethnic mood — the melting pot,” the designer said backstage. From Kenya’s Masai tribe, he borrowed a vibrant shade of blue that was splashed throughout the lineup, namely in a sequined stripe running down the middle of a geometric-print dress. The same pattern was worked on a sleeveless blouse paired with a color-blocked skirt. Rough-hewn knits with a handmade look were unexpectedly light to the touch, shown with flawlessly tailored pencil skirts and capri pants for a casually elegant silhouette.
