We always get really, really excited when the pictures of No.21's resort collections start rolling in through Style.com. Known for his unexpected use of classic materials such as lace and updated interpretation of timeless shapes like trousers, shirts and jackets, Alessandro Dell'Acqua is a genius when it comes to creating luxurious clothes that you actually want to wear -- and continue to wear season after season. His Resort 2014 collection, which just recently showed, is no exception. Click after click, we ooh -ed and ahh -ed at what came next. The label has taken a decidedly more relaxed, downtown approach this season, with its slouchy shapes and relaxed tailoring. These are pieces that you could definitely picture the society girls wearing around downtown New York or the cool girls wearing around uptown New York; the clothes swing both ways and appeal to both groups -- polished, with a modern twist. Oh, and simplyirresistible!
