LEGGING IT: Legwear legend Emilio Cavallini will unveil his fall collection at his first presentation during New York Fashion Week. The designer said it will be a “sexy, intimate cinematic experience” that will spotlight Italian artistry as well as the seductive powers of legwear. Themed “Risqué Business,” the presentation will feature a film as well as models in “still life” vignettes inspired by the iconic pinup Bettie Page, whose naughty calender photos were ogled worldwide.
Set to premiere from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 13 at The Box, the presentation also gleans inspiration from Cavallini’s love affair with Florence. Cavallini said his presentation is designed to celebrate the return of legwear as a fashion statement for fall.
