Just Cavalli’s design team waded knee-deep into the brand’s archives for pre-fall. The collection, rooted in a youthful, urban aesthetic, channeled a romantic rock mood through a combination of contrasting elements. The team paired more sartorial pieces — precise, graphic silhouettes embellished with military-inspired details — with hyper-feminine designs, including an array of mini and maxidresses with ruching and frills. Prints took center stage. They ranged from botanical motifs with a nocturnal feel and British pottery graphics to Just Cavalli’s signature leopard and snake patterns, sometimes combined for a patchwork effect. Leather was laminated and inlaid for metallic bombers and miniskirts. The collection missed a creative twist that would enable the Just Cavalli brand to be more competitive in a market dominated by cookie-cutter fast-fashion labels.
