Inspired by Hitchcock’s cinematic universe and iconic women, “ROUGE NUIT” introduces a new heroine – a modern young woman with an enigmatic, initially distant allure, yet also possessing seductive, vulnerable, femme fatale, rebellious, and determined qualities, akin to a “volcano underneath the snow.” The collection showcases timeless silhouettes that alternate between stealthy, mysterious, and devastating, ultimately leading to a subversive heroine finding a happy ending in tranquillity. The materials used embrace the skin, becoming an extension of femininity and leaving an indelible mark, emphasizing a call to be proud of one’s identity.

Coccellato is the brainchild of Iman Coccellato, a standout graduate of the renowned French Fashion Institute (IFM), has launched his long-awaited fashion brand. With training at esteemed studios like Chloé, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Lanvin, Coccellato infuses his creations with a distinctive blend of cultural richness and aesthetic finesse. Drawing inspiration from his Sicilian and Tunisian heritage, his designs encapsulate the spirit of a fiery Sicily, a charming Tunisia, and a dedication to aesthetics. Serving as a clothing architect, Coccellato transforms women’s silhouettes into living works of art, with garments that seamlessly adapt to the wearer’s mood through sensual seams and a play of contrasting colours. His craftsmanship is dedicated to empowering women to celebrate and express their strength within the ever-evolving world, presenting a timeless collection designed to endure generations.

Deliberately restricted colour choices, featuring shades of midnight blue and 3D nets in black and white, create an atmosphere reminiscent of shadows and mirages. This collection pays homage to the intensity of dark tones, embodying an internal passion that blossoms with simplicity, allowing shapes to stand out much like the night itself.
