There is always something interesting to see during Fashion Weeks, which can be a pleasant experience, lasting for six months forward then. But even among all this splendor there are special shows, which I would not want to miss. At Milan Fashion Week such show for me was Roberto Cavalli, where I was in a hurry to run down the cobblestone Italian streets, not regretting a new pair of shoes! When I finally reached the old palazzo in the heart of Milan, there was exotic journey before the start of the show for me and the rest of guests. Walls of atmospheric location were decorated with the huge Moorish fabrics, which seemed to hint at multicultural touches in the collection. Indeed, this collection, which became the third for the new creative director of the brand Peter Dundas, was full of eclectic quotes from different countries and periods: Egyptian textiles, Turkish floral motifs, Victorian designs, African animalistic prints. But all these colorful looks united by a common line – hippie style of 70s, which has always been a passion of designer. And today he keeps up with the times more than ever. Flared jeans, embroidered capes, long dresses, fringe and peplum – we saw on the catwalk all that now is the summer quintessential for us.
I should note that I felt the hand of the new creative director in the spring-summer collection, of course. But after his third show we can say that the fashion house has a worthy successor, which will certainly give new life to the brand. As the commercial team wants, which has changed at the same time with the creative team. They are aiming at business ambitions, and the fashion house is still facing a lot of changes. Personally, I am very excited! If each future show of Roberto Cavalli will be able to give me the same bright emotions like this one, I’m all for changes! I am sure, a new army of brand’s fans – “generation of Coachella” – will agree with me!
