Roberto Cavalli Fall 2015

by Dena Silver

It truly wouldn’t be a Cavalli show if there wasn’t a touch of animal print, a hint of sparkle, a smattering of studs, and quite a bit of sex appeal. But for Fall, Roberto Cavalli kept the tone romantic, and he was influenced by the theme of the forthcoming Met Gala, “China: Through The Looking Glass”. The Asian inspiration could be found in billowing chiffon sleeves, which accompanied a black jumpsuit with a gold detail and a sweet floral print that was prominent throughout, from a windowpane checkered blazer to a prim blouse. And for every evening gown with a neckline that hovered an inch or two above the belly button, there was a turtleneck, balancing out the sultry factor on a mini-dress. Also adding a demure touch were ruffles that accompanied flared sleeves and those modest necklines. Pants covered in black sequins or done as velvet cropped flares were also in the mix. But there were also plenty of evening-apropos looks, which is perhaps what Cavalli does best.
