Milan Fashion Week: Roberto Cavalli

Monday, 28 February 2011

I really liked Roberto Cavalli's dark, apocalyptic esthetic. There was something about the clothes, the wet hair drawn together at the neckline and the piercing smoky eyes that told a story that drew you in from the beginning. I was impressed by such a strong runway show! All that layering and mixes of prints and materials like chiffon, python or leather, in a dark color palette created an aura of mystery on the runway. The outfits I really liked were the metallic blazers with baroque patterns, the leather jacket-grey pants combo, the navy coat with golden appliques, the blue fur vest and the animal prints. The contrast of the gorgeous floor-length dresses in soft materials and the more tailored menswear-inspired pieces in harsh metallic tones added to the surreal feel of the show, the models looked gorgeous in their apocalyptic setting.

And here's the runway video!
