Cavalli’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection, which the designer refers to as a dream, was absolutely stunning. A total of 44 looks took over the runway, each more exquiste than the next. The designs framed a woman’s body is a unique and constructed way.
The first looks were rather surprising. Very innocent and angelic all white outfits, ranging from perfectly tailored pieces to flowing embellished dresses.
The second set of looks introduced nudes and neon colour palettes. The same theme and patterns continued from the pieces earlier but had a very soft essence to them, especially the dresses which seemed to just linger seamlessly with the models’ body.
The 16th look carried out the rest of the show with the Cavalli signature designs we’re used to. Full of life and pieces of art more than just designs of fashion.
The detailing and embroidery in these designs resembled a feel of modern art deco. The outfits included everything from perfectly crafted blazers and suits, which are accented with crystals. Silk dresses with leather and lace inserts. Pants with purposely designed slits and dresses with specific cut-outs to draw attention to every curve on a woman’s body. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Cavalli collection without some jaguar and python prints.
The models ripped the runway with these exotic animal wrap bracelets and python printed leather handbags.
The shoes in this collection were to die for!! Gold-heels, gold-tips and statement buckles were all over the stage. Edgy yet elegant, these heels definitely accented this collection impeccably.
And finally, my absolute favourite piece from this collection… the Hera handbag in jaguar print. Take a look,
This photo was tweeted on Roberto Cavalli’s page and needless to say it has been added to the top of my want list.
