Piccione and Alfred Angelo designer Michael Shettel tells us that sculpted shapes and glamorous silhouettes define his latest collection that will debuting on the runway next week. "Using the film Jazz On A Summer's Day, a documentary of the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival, as inspiration, the collection reflects styles that juxtaposed each other that weekend—jazz and the America's Cup yacht races," says Shettel. "Cool jazz riffs mixed that weekend with salty air and canvas sails. Beatniks sat side by side with aristocratic mainlanders."
