The Maison Albino Spring 2013 collection comes to the label's devotees in an upscale lookbook, one that is lit up with an unusual spotlight. The French label has been a forerunner of ready-to-wear, and it will continue to be so via this set of dainty garments.
Designer Albino D'amato looked to the Italian screen director Bernardo Bertolucci for inspiration. Bertolucci has always displayed a keen understanding of French culture and style, elements that are especially critical to D'Amato's legend.
Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris and The Dreamers proved to be the fashionable fodder that D'amato was in search of. The architectural focus of his classic films is apparent in this picture series, apparent in the grand Parisian doors marble fireplaces.
