Alcantara's S/S 2015 collection, Acqua, is an exploration into the endless design possibilities of this unique product, using numerous decorative techniques - plaiting and knitting, laser-cut motifs, beautiful laminas and prints combined with embroidery - to create articles which interpret the unfathomable transience of water, drawing inspiration from mythological figures or water related elements.
