For his 40th anniversary collection, Roberto Cavalli presented a wardrobe befitting himself, and that’s exactly what he aimed for. “In any case I made a collection that is me and that’s very good for me as I am an elderly youth and also for my son who is very young and very handsome”, the designer said.
The collection of looks made for an elegant and vibrant wardrobe. This wardrobe included some of Roberto Cavalli’s signature pieces such as leather, shown in a blue suede jacket with a spine of studs. Another one of his classics – animal prints – was replaced, however, with a plethora of crazy patterns that he picked up on a trip in Indonesia. These prints made some of the best pieces of the collection, but you can’t live in prints everyday and night, you also need suits, which is why Roberto presented a multitude of dark colored separates that were perfect for getting through the black-tie affairs. The main vibe that shown from the collection was rocker, a classic Cavalli style, which makes it perfect for his anniversary.
The showing in the courtyard of the Palazzo Del Senato in Milan started off with three gothic ninjas who took a stroll down the runway to light an olympic flame of sorts. This was as far as the celebrating lasted, however. The rain started to drizzle before the models could took their finale walk, so the finale walk was canceled. It was a shame that when the designer actually had something to celebrate, the joy didn’t exactly shine through.
