COLLECTION| Raffaele Ascione launches A/W13 collection and holds sample sale

Big things are happening for Fashion Scout designer Raffaele Ascione as he launches his A/W13 collection, short film and holds a sample sale.

Raffaele chose to focus on finalising his A/W13 designs as opposed to showcasing them through an exhibition or catwalk presentation this season. Consequently, launching the collection live on his website and across his social media platforms (through his lookbook and subsequently his short fashion film - see above-) shortly after fashion week. 

The collection itself? Darker and more subversive than his prior collection, each garment's shapes have ballooned to oversized yet maintain an intense element of femininity and wearability. A progression of more luxe fabrics are completed with lace appliqué, material juxtaposition and strong zip detailing.

Raffaele will be holding a sample sale of his last four collections this Saturday (16.03.13). For more information, visit Raffaele's Facebook page
