Roberto Cavalli’s Spring/Summer 2017 Collection Is a Patchwork of Different Styles

For the Roberto Cavalli spring/summer 2017 collection presented on the Milan Fashion Week runway, we fell in love with the Middle Eastern, particularly Moroccan take on the pieces that came forth. The shine, the color combinations and the overall stage were so very appealing, while the addition of denim, of stripes and ruffled skirts only made the whole thing stand out even more as ready-to-wear pieces for the daytime.

It was all about mixing fashions up. As Dundas noted backstage in the interview with WWD: “I started by looking at Native American folk art, and some of the patterns reminded me of growing up in Norway — snowflakes were the same as flowers in the Navajo art. It became a mix of the idea of traveling and patching together things.”

There is nothing quite so lovely as an incredible new Roberto Cavalli collection. Truly! With so many years to the label’s name to give it credence, the Cavalli lines only get better by the year and it is no wonder that so many celebrities, particularly A-listers, are prone to picking up a mesmerizing Cavalli dress for their appearances on the red carpet these days.

With his strength having always been in the innovations of printing on leather, the designer has grown immensely and scored fans among some of the sexiest stars on the planet, which includes Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren. He loves things in excess and minimalism is so not his style, but that is what makes wearing Roberto Cavalli so very special. Peter Dundas has taken the reigns of the company since 2015 and has been doing wonders with what Cavalli himself had created so many years ago.

There was one particular getup in the Roberto Cavalli spring 2017 collection that was reminiscent of a pirate’s sexier, more land-worthy lifestyle, with off-the-shoulder crop top that featured stripes and billowing sleeves, matched with an equally striped pair of pants, deeper brick red ruffles along the sides and hem. Long tunics looked rather amazing, featuring traditional Eastern floral patterning and fringe, while there was a whole lot of open midriff throughout.

We even noticed a sheer golden dress that highlighted the body beneath while dazzling the audience that enjoyed checking out the texture of the designs strutted about before them. We have to admit though that the multiple styles of the denim pants, low riding on the hips and showing off flat tummies without love handles, definitely caught our attention. There is something so very ‘90s pop about it all.

The overwhelming trend throughout was the use of gold threading and lots of stripes though. Kind of brings a combination of Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Lopez fashions to mind, with the Western mix with the Near Eastern, a touch of African but without entering into the Asian.

There is a whole lot of decoration, a whole lot of accessories and embellishments, and ramping up on the sexy happening when it comes to the daywear. As for the eveningwear, we are looking for slight sheerness without showing off too much underneath, lots of ruffles, hugging bodies fully or to some extent, and even some slits up the center. They too feature very ethnic designs here and there.

We love the color plays in general and the wild hair is certainly something we can get used to. So much gold threading and shimmer overall though and we absolutely adore it!
