Amid the towering corinthian columns of Florence's Public Library, Alessandro dell'Acqua presented N21's first men's collection .
The 18th century library provided the perfect backdrop for the line, which was heavily influenced by a schoolboy theme.
"It's really for a man from any age, from 20 to 40 years old," dell'Acqua told Now Fashion.
"It all depends on how you wear it."
Dell'Acqua said that by producing the men's line for N21, he is coming full circle.
"Our markets were requesting it. We boom 75 percent of our business abroad in markets like Japan, Russia, China and Northern Europe," he said.
Traditional items like baseball jackets, sweatshirts were spruced up by metallic embroidery and intricate micro sequin designs.
A masculine color scheme of cadet green, navy blue and military khaki toned down more feminine outfits like a men's suit constructed entirely of lace.
Hunting landscapes, horses and palm trees were splashed on ankle high tapered pants and sweaters.
Like the over-stimulated youth of today, it seems N21 men's is also struggling to find its identity, but it is definitely worth seeing how it will evolve in future collections.
