Antonio Azzuolo

Since we first featured Antonio Azzuolo—in our launch issue, no less—the NYC designer has gone on to make some serious waves in the fashion world. It’s not enough that his polish-with-pop approach to menswear seems to ripple through influencers long after he’s moved on to other notions, he’s also nabbed a CFDA nom. We can’t wait to see what’s next for Mr. Azzuolo. For now, let’s take a peek at his Fall 2012 collection, all kimonos and razor-sharp blazers. A warrior and a gentleman.
