Overabundance of elements is a notion that was never strange to Roberto Cavalli, who just happens to meet the highest form of success whenever crowning the excess. The designer’s fall / winter 2013 collection, keen on emphasizing a different type of technological approach, gathered its inspiration from the baroque artwork of the sixteenth century.
Monochrome floral prints, covering with their gentle strokes an array of dark and alluring silhouettes were a nice and far more gentle alternative to all the snakeskin patterns that shaped the previous seasons. Following on to the same distinct path, the armor-like numbers borrowing the Florentine artisan craftsmanship kept the dark notes thrilling, particularly when topped by an abundance of metal and shine components.
Alongside the line of sleek tuxedos, the outerwear segment was entirely based on traditional fox fur and leather juxtapositions, while the evening wear was significantly influenced by Cavalli’s noir vision. There, decadent gowns carrying the intoxicating flavour of a distant time complemented the enigmatic portrait of the Cavalli woman for fall.
