Resort collection after resort collection, we are beginning to really map out our vacation wardrobes, from the fit to the flouncy, the classic to the flirty and for the positively divine eveningwear. Just Cavalli is a secondary line that was founded in 1998 and aims at the more youthful populations, offering men’s and women’s garments, alongside accessories, eyewear, watches, jewellery, perfumes, underwear and beachwear. We have always found this label to really have all that it takes to make the younger fans of Roberto Cavalli enjoy themselves with pieces of clothing and everything else offered on its shelves that appeal to the senses of the target audience. It seems that for the latest Just Cavalli resort 2016 collection, a trip to Japan has been taken, at least in the Cavalli imagination, and the burst of fun and laughter and youthful dreaming is clearly apparent in the entire line-up.
The focus seems to be on the Harajuka district in Tokyo, which is a gathering spot for eccentric teens, who love to dress in elaborate costumes and customized outfits. Japanese traditional elements were also incorporated through the iconography of the prints, including floral patterns, which are trending all year round in 2015 and seem to be passing into 2016 as well, alongside the short silk cadi skirts that have been paired with ruffled chiffon blouses and/or obi-inspired belts. We are actually seeing a pattern in the use of Japanese themes when it comes to the resort collections being unveiled, meaning that 2016 might be leaning more towards that particular side of the world for inspiration. The mood set by this particular line-up also reminds us of a Las Vegas theme, with some more rock-inspired funky designs, a series that includes fringed leather jackets and some awesome metallic accents to add to the overall appeal of the collection. This includes miniskirts as well, as well as sleeveless zippered leather dresses worn over so very pretty blouses that inspire thoughts and feelings of femininity. Add some lovely oversized, gold-rimmed sunglasses to the mix, shiny boots in black and gold and white and red as well, and you have a collection really worth looking into.
Curving necklines are seen in the Just Cavalli resort 2016 collection, along with the pairing of mini dresses with mid-calf length boots, the sleeves long and the waist accented with a belt without actually cinching it in. The white fringe jacket and skirt set most certainly appeals to us and is somehow reminiscent of a cowgirl goddess conquering the Wild West. Fringes appear on handbags as well, though we are unsure just how practical a 2 feet long fringe really is, hanging off your purse. Keyhole slits make an appearance here as well, while colors range from mahogany to coral oranges, midi skirts looking perfect in contrast with those really short miniskirts.
Throughout the whole Just Cavalli cruise 2016 collection there is a very interesting vibe of chic sophistication meeting flirty fun. You are sure to be wowing all the other passengers on your cruise or at your resort, just with the leather meats chiffon combinations alone.
