Roberto Cavalli strode back into the limelight at Milan Fashion Week with his main collection, this afternoon, after the financial crisis which engulfed his younger line, Just Cavalli, last week.
The message from the Roberto Cavalli brand, which he owns and is not threatened by the economic situation, was hammered home by an army of models dressed in tough-chic, studded black leather and thigh-high spike-heeled boots.
Watched by an audience including Elizabeth Hurley, they marched down a black polyurethane catwalk against a backdrop of mirrors in which they were reflected a dozen times over.
The clothes were a potent, sexy mix of aggressive inspirations including 'Blade Runner’, 'Mad Max’ and punk.
In defiance of the supposed 'fashion economics’ theory which decrees hemlines should drop when money is tight, Cavalli reduced his warrior-skirts to little more than an armoured pelmet.
Leather micro-minis and matching gauntlets were covered in silver studs; skimpy suede dresses bristled with rivets; and asymmetric, chain-mail tunics, which barely covered the rear, were belted over skin-tight jeans, thong-stitched in metallic threads.
The mood of ferocious luxury was echoed in cropped 'gaucho’ jackets with fox sleeves; and in mink “yeti” boots which accessorised silken kilts and fringed, toga-skirts.
For evening, Cavalli went for see-through mode, showing “swimsuit gowns” in navy and black, with a long, sheer overlay, emblazoned with studs.
it looks marvelous so far, need to see more.
It actually sounds a little promising.
I've hated where Cavalli's been going these last couple of seasons since he was trying so hard to be something different. At least the inspirations sound a bit more like him.
I thought SS08 was a nice change
Warrior-inspired! Sounds interesting but I still need to see more..
