Born from a decadent European Summer spent abroad, it was only fitting that Louise Lazarus and Geo Moriarty named their shared creative vision after the celebratory Italian toast ‘Cin Cin’ (pronounced Chin Chin).
An ode to the 70’s jet set and a ‘more is more’ aesthetic, the Australian founders began their journey in print design, a process that has become their brand’s signature since its launch in 2019. With each collection, anticipated motifs and ‘troppo-graphic’ prints are released in vivid color swim and resortwear, designed and produced in-house from start to finish.
With travel at the heart of Cin Cin, it was only natural that the female designers found themselves residing in the far away lands of South Africa and the island of Bali. With its lush natural beauty, the ‘Island of Gods’ lay the perfect foundation not only for inspiration but also for turning dreams into wearable pieces for the Cin Cin girl.
Combining the island’s master tailors - a skill intertwined with the history of the island - and Geo’s presence on the ground, the duo have been able to grow an intentional and ethical garment making studio exclusively producing Cin Cin products at the highest level of quality. With the studio surrounded by palm trees and cassava plants, Geo works alongside their twenty person strong team to make magic, and both girls come together to design the prints and collections.
Since luxury e-tailer Moda Operandi’s spotlighting of the brand by carrying their debut collection in January 2019, the Australian duo has gone from strength to strength, with features in Vogue US, Vogue Australia, Harper’s Bazaar, ELLE, InStyle, Sports Illustrated, Vanity Fair and WWD.
