Roberto Cavalli Women`s Collection Fall/Winter 2016-2017 Fashion Show

Mood/Style:
Peter Dundas rewrites the Roberto Cavalli’s heritage with a resolved and Decadent approach in pursuit of a new idea of glamour. In his uninhibited search for absolute femininity and extreme luxury infused with Art Nouveau and 60s glam rock, the designer reaches the true essence of the femme fatale and presents one of his best accomplished collections in which the Belle Époque aesthetics co-exists with the defiant sensuality of rock. It’s fashion for today’s women: young rock-chic stars that love to flaunt cropped jackets with high-waisted pants, flared jeans, snug maxi coats and long sheer dresses ornate with crystals. Precious embroideries play a key role becoming a mystic, pagan-like detail that, at times, blurs the borders between tradition and modernity, sporty and elegant, daywear and eveningwear
