Roberto Cavalli Previews First Couture Collection Under Creative Consultant Fausto Puglisi
MILAN, ITALY — Luxury house Roberta Cavalli recently previewed images of its first couture range designed under the creative direction of Fausto Puglisi, who was appointed creative consultant in 2020 (see it here).
The five looks officially unveiled by the company acted as a teaser for designs the fashion house will introduce during the Cannes Film Festival, which opened Tuesday and will run through May 28.
Some of the gowns were published on Puglisi’s Instagram account last week. More recent posts featured the captions like “Couture Magic.”
The capsule collection is set to respect the bold and sensual femininity the brand is best known for via high-octane glam gowns and minidresses, rich in transparencies, embroideries and prints.
Examples include a black minidress mixing intricate cutouts, lace inserts, gold sequined embroideries and feathers; a vibrant green gown with a high slit and a long trail, splashed with an animal pattern; a sensual, body-hugging frock in white lace that leaves little to the imagination and a quintessentially Cavalli gold number in a leopard motif and plunging V-neck and side slits.
Behind-the-scenes videos the Sicilian designer shared with his 243,000 followers on Instagram also showed an asymmetric statement gown where the leopard motif is rendered in pink and trimmed in matching feathers; a chiffon dress encrusted with rich embroideries, combining forest green and acid green shades, as well as an electric blue long frock with a cascade of sequins and rhinestones.
