The new season COUTURiSSIMO tells the story of a modern woman who is effortlessly sophisticated and favours originality and craftsmanship over the obvious trends.
The mood is at once light and bold, featuring precise pleats that lend to an effortless sophistication. Such a contrast from léger to lifted lends to the easy-going silhouettes and carefree nature of the new COUTURiSSIMO collection; think afternoon cocktails followed by a delightful soirée in an opera house, or sauntering over to a theatre outing in the heart of the city while the sun sets. There is a design for every occasion.
The floral patterns are presented in an array of colours, especially lighter shades of pinks, blues and yellows. Replicating a quasi-canvas, the floral appliqués appear as a sketch or a painting, encapsulating a sense of playfulness and creativity. The mismatch of a vibrant colour palette and the traditional bold structure of Michael Cinco’s Pia Crossed Back Gown further enhance the malleability of the collection and the modern woman: Carefree, confidently feminine, gentle yet bold and always present.

Floral appliqués aren’t your thing? Say no more. For a complete contrast, opt for the Michael Cinco for COUTURiSSIMO signature black dress with intricate back detail and delicate lace sleeves. With this enigmatic number, the mood of the wardrobe, and thus the occasion, are completely transformed. Paired with a set of demure and dramatic gold earrings, elegance and mystery are merged together, creating a sophisticated tactility in a revealing and concealing twist.
For the ladies who lunch, Sebastian Gunawan’s strapless lace piece that sweeps to the ground with a sheer finish, exudes the perfect balance between languid and lurid. The contemporary and seemingly minimal design can be left simple owed to the shimmering pearliness of the ivory shade. Otherwise, for the bold and brave, team your dress with a shimmering clutch bag to enhance the gentle silhouette.
