Roberto Cavalli is one of the first fashion houses opening up the Milan Fashion Week on day 1, as well as being one of the first to open up shop in Iran as the sanctions are finally lifted and business prospects in the regions are being more and more attractive. For years now, the house has been a beloved one for many around the world, being seen as the epitome of fashionable creations. Born on November 15, 1940, Cavalli himself is 75 years old and celebrated his ¾ of a century but a few months back. The Florentine fashion designer is well known for his exotic prints and sand blasted jeans, looks that we love to this day.
However, the house has been changing its designs of late it appears under the helm of newly appointed creative director Peter Dundas and this latest season does not seem to be on par with some of the past looks though. In terms of watching the Roberto Cavalli fall/winter 2016-2017 fashion show itself, the models walked by too fast and it became rather hard to really understand what was happening with each outfit brought onto the catwalk.
The first look we really need to mention is also one of the most interesting to be sent out, consisting of shiny patterned pants with a high-waist aptly drawn in further by a vintage looking belt, pattern embossed shirt in button down format, the top half left open and showing off the skin underneath, and a fur coat worn on top in black, the whole of the getup giving us a strong, sharp minded and coquettish individual all at the same time. The final look of the series is one of the most futuristic, metallic and silver in hue and consisting of pants, a rounded tank top, a scarf around the neck and a coat in black and metallic gold prints, the combination making for a Back to the Future style event.
Throughout the Roberto Cavalli fall 2016 collection we notice there are some animal prints, as per the typical Cavalli fashion, plunging necklines to match with the year’s top trends, lacy designs that are near see-through and looking especially sensual, glittering ethereal pieces that rather scream Britney Spears, combinations of jewel colors, one particular dress reminding us of amethyst on gold filigree, and some layered ruffles that would do well to be worn to a gala these days.
We see velvet, chiffon and lace, leather, fur and some pieces of silk, fringe, ruffles, layers and fluttering skirts, as well as strategic cutouts in all the right and wrong places. While the collection features both men’s and women’s fall and winter line-ups among the 61 looks, it also becomes clear that the designer really placed emphasis on the females.
We look forward to seeing some of the top celebrities dressing in Roberto Cavalli fall and winter fashion during the end of the year and early 2017, when the awards ceremonies take place. It will definitely be a sight to behold. In the meantime, we are so going to be enjoying the different types of stylish pants put out on display today.
