Roberto Cavalli Resort 2017 Collection

Norwegian fashion designer Peter Dundas’ mind is a breeding ground for innovative ideas, which outdoes itself collection after collection. The latest Roberto Cavalli resort 2017 line-up precisely showcases such an immense creativity, treating us to an astonishing 44-piece collection that is all about coziness and self-confidence.

Dundas’ main theme behind the Roberto Cavalli resort 2017 collection is the bohemian style and having fun with fashion and life in general, a motto we often repeat to ourselves but rarely follow. “Life is already so difficult,” he said backstage. “There’s no need for fashion to be too difficult as well.”

Inspired by a woman that is “a rock goddess and a summer traveler,” his resort collection might not be regarded as difficult indeed, but as highly intricate and eclectic for sure. While browsing through the lookbook, we can clearly see Dundas’ willingness to turn Cavalli into an extremely colorful label, which cherishes every single print and is not afraid to navigate between different decades.

Although the collection’s main inspiration came from the Seventies (which is one of Roberto Cavalli’s signature styles), Peter Dundas also intertwined boho motifs with Nineties-inspired details, brightening up the proposals with even bolder, richer colors and more modern cuts and lines. Towards the end of the collection, Dundas exposed his most mysterious, sensual side, unveiling the line-up’s hippy-chic floor-length gowns in darker, lightweight materials.

The collection’s second theme brings forth the art of layering, here seen within the contrasting fabrics and colors. Dundas’ way of layering includes both dipping the tunics, dresses and caftans into different vibrant shades, creating a modern version of the notorious tie-dye print, and structurally juxtaposing the same proposals with dynamically pleated pieces. Relaxed in all its lines and cuts, the collection is thus mastering the art of structuralism as well, denoting Dundas’ carefree and bohemian spirit.

As for the ‘rock goddess’ reference the Norwegian designer was speaking of backstage, the collection’s ethnic motifs, leather biker jackets, suede pants and fringed waistcoats surely help it achieve an ‘I’m on my way to Woodstock’ mood, at the same time balancing the oversized maxi dresses Dundas is a clear fan of.

Bell-bottom jeans, denim shorts and rompers got embellished with a mixture of psychedelic and whimsical patches that are just as colorful as the dresses are. To emphasize the denim part of the line-up, Dundas chose to add a more ethereal, dreamlike section in the collection too, including a few all-white open-backs and layered ensembles. The open-backs are actually another recurring motif and once again gently open up the doors for more sensual, mysterious inspirations.
