During a trip to Milan last August to purchase salon furniture, Michael & Adrian were intrigued by how the women dressed – so chic and simple yet with an unassuming sophistication and assuredness.
This prompted the duo to think about creating a collection that would capture this style, paying homage to women and their beauty and strength.
Usually a term used to describe a “big shot” or man in power the collection name “Pezzonovante”, is used here to describe those women we saw on the streets of Milan.
To Michael and Adrian, they were powerful and confident yet still embracing their own individual strength and sensuality and this has been reflected in ‘Pezzonovante”.
Key statement pieces in the styling and neutral tones – camel, teak, mahogany, oak, mauve – perfectly complement the beauty in the natural feel of the hair that lends itself to a distinct editorial feel.
Each look displays a subtly in movement and softness, allowing the model’s natural strength to shine, confident in their own individuality and sense of style.
