Paris, France – A new entry into our couture coverage this season comes in the form of Cantinella. The house has created a very strong collection for Fall Winter 2017/18. This is a greatly feminine and delicate body of work that shows great promise.
The silhouettes are romantic and beautiful. The house is careful to use its materials of silk, sheers, silk chiffons lace and organza to craft well cut and expertly made looks. Though elegance is the dominant emotion here, the form-fitting sheath shape brings sex appeal to the work. It is embellished with floor-sweeping trains or with the sexy leg-running split on occasion.
Cantinella has wisely chosen its delicate materials for maximum effect. And to embellish them, the house has also added cord embroidery. Used as a more simple form of embroidery, it serves as another fine example of the house’s creative ideas that tend not to rely solely upon outright flashy elements.
