Show Review Pre-Fall 2015 Roberto Cavalli14

Brand: Roberto Cavalli

Season: Pre-Fall 2015 collection

Creative Director: Eva Cavalli

Trends: Blazer, pants, blouses, tailored tuxedos, dresses, coats, bomber jackets, trenches, gowns, jackets, vests, and skirts.

Palette: Snakeskin, floral, tiger stripes, mink, teal, gold, black, white, royal, purple, red and burgundy.

According to Style.com, “Whatever the motivation, it came to life as a fur treatment in beaver and mink on bomber and bag alike, as alpaca knitwear, and as a voluminous chiffon skirt bordered in baroque tracery. Similar baroque motifs repeated across a dense brocade coat, slinky stretch knit dresses, intricate body-baring lace, and a printed sequin tuxedo jacket that would have made Liberace swoon.”

There were plainer pieces, too—if gold contouring on day-to-night blazers and culottes qualifies as plain. Gold-dusted snakeskin-print jeans, gold-flecked floral blouses, and gold-studded suede tilted the balance back again toward glam. But none of this felt as contemporary as the black eel skin, its papery patent paneling a perfect foil for a plush teal mink coat. As an A-line mini, it rocked. Lastly, the atelier relied on labor-intensive hand-pleating for a grouping of monochromatic mermaid gowns. This was pure technique sans ornamentation, a breather from the baroque.”
