Delicate. Vintage. Feminine. Three words that come to mind, inspired by the delightful Spring/Summer 2014 collection presented on day four of Milan Fashion Week by Roberto Cavalli. It’s a collection that celebrates the 1920s with such artistry and spirit that I’m ready to start start doing the Charleston. There’s also snake skin, but in a soft and gentle way we’ve never seen it before. Gorgeous gorgeous collection that’s has an air of great ease. It’s relaxed glamour that ditches the bright neons of the Just Cavalli show of day two in favor of a much lighter palette. Seriously think I’ve fallen in love.
It’s interesting to see snakeskin done in a way that’s quiet, not loud. Usually snakeskin is done in bold looks, but these are very relaxed. I love the desert-esque pallete of the first range of looks. And then a muted lime green comes in for a splash of color that’s every bit as much fun.
Taking the route of the very well-traveled trend of black and white, Roberto Cavalli somehow veers in the direction of uncharted territory full of intricate beading, spidery necklaces, and soft woven fabrics that at times take on a Native American inspiration.
And just like that, Roberto Cavalli has revealed another collection that’s utterly flawless. I don’t know how they do it, but boy do they do it.
If you like shimmer…I’d definitely check out the full collection because the way these clothes reflect light while in motion is really breathtaking.
