It Was All About Going Back to Roots of Our Origin at Alessandro Dell Acqua Spring Summer 2010 as the designer embraced white suede boots, robes, fringes, cardigans, dresses, tops and belts in tribal style formed from natural-looking, traditionally woven fabrics such as hemp, jute and bamboo.

As you gaze at the models parading down in Alessandro Dell Acqua's Spring Summer 2009 collection, look harder and the soft beige center stage will give way to the lush green backdrop of a centuries old rainforest, filled with active volcanoes, carnivorous plants, spider monkeys, ample supply of plantain (banana trees), forest berries, tree frogs and loads of enchanting and exotic tropical adventures.

One thing Dell'Acqua will never forget is his image of sexy women his weak spot for lingerie now styled in peek-a-boo form in colours of volcanic ash and warm tones of mother earth.

As the Alessandro Dell Acqua's Spring Summer 2009 show came drawing to an end, the model clothes became stained black like hot lava that oozed to quickly onto the cool surface air, solidifying and darkening to a charred black. The models, resembling a procession of tribes, worn a face that can be only described as sacrificial brides-to-be for appeasing the constant wrath of the restless mountain gods.
