are the creatives of the eponymous label

Costello Tagliapietra.

Known and appreciated for their personal dress signature:

rugged, plaid and bearded

they are masters at delicate design, which celebrate

the female form.

Their clothes are characters of their design story:

Ease.   Colour.   Fluidity.   Simplicity.

A happy tale.

For s/s 2014, they remained true to the plot

with particular success in the trouser elements of the collection.

Of note, was the injection of their signature dress style of plaid –

(rugged and bearded excluded)

Unfortunately, not as successful was the cumbersome layering of

belted cardigans over dresses.
