Roberto Cavalli managed to create a very hot atmosphere at his runway show, not only through his hypnotic sexy dresses, but also literally, as the circular runway was lined with a ring of fire casting rich red and amber shadows on the garments. The show focused in the beginning on outerwear with a lot of tweed, python and mink coats and continuing with a couple of staggering oversize blanket-style capes. The end of the show was reserved for twenties- and thirties inspired flapper dresses embellished with fringes, feathers, crystals and even fur inserts.
I usually go for Cavalli's dark aesthetic, so this time it couldn't be otherwise. I really liked the collection and I can easily picture myself in these brooding looks. Among my favorite garments were the dusty cream flapper dress in the opening photo, the tweed and mink coats, the oversize blanket-like capes, the black and white flapper dresses, the flower-embellished pant- and skirt-suits, the black and cobalt embroidered dress, the black and red degrade dress and of course the grey mini flapper dress paired with a fur collar. Here is my selection of the most interesting looks from the runway:
What did you think of this dark collection? Would you see yourselves in their shoes?
