The most iconic words in Italian are the “issima” ones.
Bellissima (very beautiful), carinissima (very lovely), simpaticissima (very pleasant), fighissima (very cool), or sensualissima (very sensual).
You can add the suffix “issima” to just about any Italian adjective to form the “absolute superlative” that describes a woman.
But Italians would not be Italians without their love of exaggeration. So, when you hear, “Sei bellissimissima,” (“You’re extremely beautiful”) it means they also added an artificial suffix to the adjective you deserved.
Issimissima (“The Bestest”) is all about the “absolute superlative” in its extreme degree.
It’s a digital art collab with fashion illustrators highly trained in portraiture, technical drawing, and fashion design, who work with Chanel, Louis Vuitton, L’Oréal, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Pandora, Guerlain, Dior, Estée Lauder, Elle, Numéro, Cartier, and other brands.
Fashion illustration is an art genre on par with photography, but it allows the viewer to finish the picture themselves, whether you want to be an elegant glittering woman, rebellious, or, maybe, ultra-sexy.
In a time when everyone has access to everything, this intimacy cannot be lost.
