Metallic Shine In Roberto Cavalli’s Fall/Winter 2013 Collection At MFW

Forgoing his well-known exuberant and playful animal prints this season, in favour of a more mysterious allure, Roberto Cavalli created for his Fall/Winter 2013 show, a collection in which excess, a signature element of the label, was communicated on a darker note, which didn’t however lack romanticism.

The shine of metallics was a recurring element within the collection, visible on sleeves, shoulders, waistlines and hips, in the case of dresses, or juxtaposed with fabrics such as fox fur, tweed or leather, in the case of coats. Using traditional Florentice techniques, Cavalli created, with the help of a mosaic of metallic inserts, the effect of a seductive armour.

To balance out the dark edge, the designer gave everything a romantic note in the form of hand painted floral prints, initially presented in monochrome versions, and eventually infused with powerful doses of vivid colour.
