ADDING SHOES: Alessandro Dell’Acqua has added a shoe line to his No. 21 women’s fashion brand. “Shoes currently represent a fundamental part of women’s style, and now with this No. 21 footwear line, we are able to provide a total look coherent with the brand’s aesthetics,” said Dell’Acqua, who signed a two-year licensing agreement with Italian shoemaker Kallisté for the production of his footwear collections.“With this license Kallisté aims to develop the brand’s international business with a particular focus on new emerging markets,” said Kallisté’s commercial director Chiara Doni.

The shoe line, which made a soft debut with the pre-fall collection, will be officially launched during the fall-winter show taking place in Milan on Feb. 22 at 6 p.m.
