An acclaimed trendsetter, Roberto Cavalli’s career began with a bang in 1970 and is still going strong. He has often been compared to Gianni Versace and linked with many young celebrities who sport his stunning designs like Jennifer Lopez, Michael Jackson, Victoria Beckham and Shakira, just to name a few.
Among other things, Cavalli collaborated with H&M to create an exclusive collection, which debuted in 2007. During the Cannes Film festival, his gorgeous gowns can be seen on a variety of beautiful models such as Natasha Poly, who worn a daring red dress with a plunging neckline and Anja Rubik, who went for a more sophisticated look in an all-black ensemble with a slit to showcase her endlessly long legs.
Often known for over-the-top garments, Cavalli’s collections never disappoint. While his gowns have been a hit on the red carpet, his latest collection is sure to blow you away. In celebrating the 40th anniversary of his label, Just Cavalli, the designer turns wild animal prints and big bold colors into high fashion by creating beautifully crafted garments that makes his pieces look modern and street-chic. A recent trip to India inspired this designer to create his 2013 resort collection, where he experimented with color and print-blocking.
A simple sheath dress turns into to a work of art when Cavalli plays with bright yellow, lime green, and blue, and mixes it in with wild cheetah prints and black stripes, while an orange sequined mini dress was all drama where it gave off a rebellious vibe very reminiscent of the women in the flapper era of 1920s. A fun-loving maxi dress featured palm leaves. A few white pieces in the collection helped emphasize the overall edginess in his beautiful designs, and fitted snap backs helped complement the overall look.
The celebration of Cavalli’s 40th anniversary of his debut collection was intended to end with fireworks, and it did not disappoint. We’re sure Mr. Cavalli will delight our senses yet again with another hit collection. In the meantime, let’s celebrate 40 years of his timeless designs and hopefully another 40 years to come.
