One of the most talented, but unappreciated designers of haute couture, the Italian design god teamed up with a fellow countryman to deliver the Aquilano.Rimondi Spring 2010 collection.

An ode to centuries past, and the rich fabrics, hand-embroidery, draping and manipulation, the Aquilano.Rimondi Spring 2010 line was a luxurious and crowd pleasing mixture of jewel tones, brocades, lightly dusted gold fabrics and patch-worked trimmings.

Implications - Many of today's foremost fashion trends actually have their basis in the past. Today's consumers are obsessed with fashion from bygone eras. While most of these trends have called back to the 80s and 70s, companies or products that can state their historical appeal have the ability to easily differentiate themselves from those using the popular form of retro styling.
