The Roberto Cavalli fall-winter 2014/2015 runway was orchestrated by the Italian designer as a spectacle in the truest and most formidable sense of the word. And despite the fire and light special effects being staged under the monumental Arco della Pace, got altogether overwhelmed by the magnificent Cavalli creations!
The daytime outfits with bootcut trousers almost sweeping over the tips of the shoes and fitted buttoned-down shirts got a lush, even exuberant look thanks to the typically luxuriant Cavalli prints. Their starts were his exceptional reptile skin prints and, next to them, this time around, decorative motifs with a distinctly equestrian visual vocabulary.
But the elements tying in the ensemble – the Italian house’s casual pieces and evening stunners – were fire and furs. The first of the two did not only make for the formidable decor of the podium, but it also climbed, as a fundamental ornamental element of the collection, up the waving bottoms of the dresses reaching further up, into incandescent red colours, some of Cavalli’s pompous capes and coats.
The Roberto Cavalli collection made up of fluid lines, iconically embellished with sequins beadwork then caped over with omnipresent fur capes, was broadcast live on #FashionavecPassion. You can see it again here!
