Classic and edgy. Feminine and masculine.
For the Pre-Fall 2023 season, Roberto Cavalli creative director Fausto Puglisi builds an eclectic and versatile wardrobe of desirable pieces, that are meant to be mixed and matched to portray everyone’s individuality.
The Roberto Cavalli brand’s most authentic artistic and experimental heritage is celebrated and revisited through a very modern spirit, exuding fun, unapologetic elegance and freedom. Playing with contrasts and juxtapositions, an adventurous Western feel meets a traditional Italian vibe, resulting in fringed details and a beautiful range of metallic accessories decorated with precious turquoise. Impeccable deconstructed cashmere coats and sartorial suits mixing checks and Prince of Wales patterns add to the adventure of contrasts.
The brand’s signature sex appeal is omnipresent. Cut-outs and slits pepper the dresses, spanning from leopard jersey styles embellished with hardware details to gowns showing asymmetric cuts and exquisite 3D decorations.
In keeping with Roberto Cavalli’s tradition, wild animal patterns steal the spotlight. A photographic fur print is splashed on a skirt suit injected with a Seventies’ allure, while a colorful python motif is printed on lacquered leather for trenches, as well as perfecto jackets matched with flared skirts.
Ladylike elements, such as “le pettegole” the elegant yet nonchalant low heeled slingback shoes accessorize the looks with ease. Voluminous A-line skirts, perfectly coexist with more relaxed pieces, including slouchy cardigans, velvet flared pants and robe coats layered on jeans and rock ’n ‘ roll T-shirts.
The brand’s strong heritage echoes in the intricate patchwork leather pieces decorated with lace-up details that also speak to the modern free spirit. The collection builds on the concept of freedom to talk to the new generations through a genderless approach, resulting in unisex drill utility shirts and grungy separates printed with an eye-catchingly cheeky pin-up motif.
Pumps and towering chunky platforms, along with wedged boots and booties, complete the rich and versatile wardrobe offering a fresh new take on fashion essentials.
