Discussing his inspiration for his fall 2010 collection, Antonio Azzuolo said, “it started when I watched Midnight Cowboy one night. I got the idea to create my own interpretation of the Wild West.”
Antonio’s result is the sartorial cowboy, on whom slim fitting cashmere pants and tailored suiting mesh well with an invented subculture aesthetic, complete with hats and horse accented wool sweaters.
One of the more interesting pieces from the collection included shorts and tights, which looked as though at any moment this “Billy the English Schoolboy” gunslinger figure would pull out his hands from his pockets and yell, “Draw!”
