We were chatting with a friend who does fashion PR the other night and he made a point that there are a lot of non American designer who, until they show in New York, fly under the radar. Such is the case with Antonio Azzuolo. If he’s shown in New York before, we completely missed it, but we think this is his first season showing here and we can’t believe we didn’t know about the line before now.
Prior to launching a. a., Antonio Azzuolo served as design director for Ralph Lauren Purple and Black Label, where he dedicated his time to concept and design. Earlier, Azzuolo worked for over ten years at high-end New York and Parisian design institutions such as HermÃ¨s and Kenzo.
