Designer Alessandro Dell’Acqua’s collection for the pre-fall 2021 line of his N ° 21 brand highlights an edgy version of Marylin Monroe for the first time with blonde braids and a combination of hot pants and a shirt with a soft collar, then standing in front of a mirror in a yellow cashmere sweater with a pattern of shiny glossy lips printed on it. “I dedicated this collection to Marilyn Monroe – explains the Neapolitan designer – because I recognize in her a modern attitude towards sensuality. Despite her reputation as a ‘dumb blonde’, Marilyn embodied a healthy and natural form of sensuality. She fascinated men, but did not arouse alarmism in women, because she was a ‘beautiful little girl’ in whose spontaneous manner and behavior others found ‘a sort of platinum-plated sexual explosion. I used all the standard elements of feminine sensuality, from bras to plunging necklines, from bodysuits to culottes, from large coats worn with nothing underneath, to tube skirts and metal bustiers ”.
