For the famous Florentine fashion designer, the Roberto Cavalli pre-fall 2015 collection was envisioned in a bit of a different twist to his general style, with its elegance punctuated with romantic flowers and bold tiger stripes. His famous patent of printing on leather from back in 1979 is seen here in the modern pieces as well, while wild nature has certainly been a point of reference for most of the lines presented this year. The lavish collection has the edges of both rock and baroque, melded together in rococo, with a special focus on fierceness and a favoured house motif. We’re talking beaver and mink becoming the fur staples, placed on bomber jackets and bags alike, as well as alpaca knitwear, voluminous chiffon skirts and lots of baroque motifs available on brocade coats, stretch knit dresses, lace that bares the body to the world and sequined tuxedo jackets that can make one swoon with their elegance. Cavalli’s pieces are to be coveted, loved and thoroughly cherished, whether they are the more embellished or the simpler designs in blazers and culottes.
The 74-year-old designer is alive and kicking, his famous sand-blasted looks for jeans from back in 1994 this pre-fall season turning into gold dusted snakeskin print jeans that’s sure to grab the attention of the old and the young, the fashionably chic and the style illiterate. His famous flower prints that had caught the attention of major Italian hosiery factories shine bright once again. Animal prints have become a signature Roberto Cavalli look and we would simply be lost without the seamless manner by which the natural world is incorporated into fashionable ready-to-wear attire. We are definitely enjoying the immensely attractive Roberto Cavalli pre-fall 2015 collection presented by the luxury fashion house.
There’s something entirely too sexy, chic and sophisticated about the first outfit complete with lighter colored stitching, a tighter straight leg to the pants that define the length of the legs, and the matching pieces overall. You have your black shirt with the stitched patterned lines, as well as the blazer in similar style, while the same design is apparent in the stitching that treks down the outer side of the legs, all the way down. Add leather gloves and a larger professional leather handbag, part the hair from the center and tuck behind the ears, as well as add bold eye makeup on a dewy clear face, and you are set to go.
Animal prints galore! You have tigers staring out at you, a white and a regular orange striped, as you don a blouse that’s so typically Roberto Cavalli. Add wide legged pinstripe trousers to the mix and you have a rather interesting combination that works well in the fashion world but might be a little harder to place in our everyday lives. Those pants alone are so long, the hem cleans up the dirt from the ground. We might want to shorten the edges just a bit, so that at least a little bit of our shoes peeks out from beneath.
The next astounding piece from the Roberto Cavalli pre-fall 2015 collection is just too sexy not to mention. The fur body of the dress with its extremely deep V plunge over the chest and its silky sleeves, all showing off stripy prints, is enough to melt the hearts of all those who come into contact with it. A patching scarf with the rest of the dress only adds to its amazing appeal. This is one piece from the Roberto Cavalli collection that we truly want for ourselves.
