For Spring 2012, CFDA Fashion Fund finalist Antonio Azzuolo took his inspiration from les minets, a group of mod French youngsters in the 50s who had a penchant for both dressing up and starting fights. The collection could’ve benefited from a bit more of a unifying theme (with a bright red anorak being in the same lineup as an all-black look with a dangerously low v-neck top and drop-crotch shorts), however, the suits were cut immaculately and the styling was inspiring, as always.
to add to my long list of possible DIY projects: the paper rose boutonniere
an exquisite shawl-lapel jacket in a Chanel-esque tweed
another jacket trimmed with a similarly-textured tweed
loose trousers and Vibram wedge soled brogues
