Every now and then a collection so fantastic comes along I literally get like squealing excitement. It’s odd. I know. But when Roberto Cavalli presented the Spring 2015 Collection today at Milan Fashion Week I was giddy like Christmas morning. (Minus the wrapping paper!) Cavalli’s slim and breezy silhouettes were paraded with bright colors that are so great they inspire the hippie inside us all. If you weren’t already a flower-power, smoking marijuana and dancing the night away at Coachella type – perhaps you will be now?
And while black also had a statement in the collection, it felt anything but minimal. Sheer panels as stripes with bejeweled embellishments are fun, sexy and yes, totally flirty (standard for a Cavalli collection). I think in general, the detailing of this collection is of couture level. It’s probably the most intricate detailing we’ve seen thus far on the Spring runways, which says a lot as jewel encrusted wonders have basically been everywhere!
Feeling ready for spring again already?
Yes, me too my friend. ME TOO!
I haven’t done that great of a job at keeping track of my favorite collections this season, but this is definitely high up on my list. Top 3 probably? (This makes me think I need to start keeping running tabs so I can maintain some level of accuracy. Then again, it’s fashion not statistics.).
Oh sure, fall is swiftly on its way – but this makes me feel better about the 80 degrees outside today and how I’m currently lounging on the deck with a shorts and bare feet. Indian summer is fine by me, too bad I don’t have a rainbow colored maxi dress from Roberto Cavalli to keep me company!
