I discovered Daniele not long ago. Turns out he was the cordswainer to lead the triumphant catwalk marches for Yves Saint Laurent and Sergio Rossi. A cunning combination of techniques and cuts, and an irreverent handling of materials – calf with python, patent with nappa, suede with stingray as exemplified in the Spring collection.
Michetti’s designs are compelling and distinctive, as they are sophisticated and ultra-feminine. Shoes above are “Adalgisa” in black and gold python leather, S$1,390 and “Alanis” in satin and leopard print leather, S$1,260.
Daniele Michetti is available from Club 21, 01-02 Four Seasons Hotel, tel: +65 6304 1385.
