With his fresh, summery collection, Roberto Cavalli demonstrated that pottery patterns are proving to be one of the resort season’s biggest trends in Milan. In this case, the theme fit perfectly with the house’s colorful, playful and opulent DNA. “This pre-collection was born from an in-depth study of my maison’s prints,” said the designer, who blended references that spanned from sophisticated Japanese Kakiemon vases to the bold decorations of Southern Italian ceramics. Baroque-inspired floral motifs bloomed on masculine yet sensual silk duchesse suits, as well as crepe de chine V-neck dresses and fluid silk georgette pleated styles. Meanwhile, a sophisticated tuxedo was a standout, decorated with an intense allover pattern of bright oversize flowers. Indulging in a more romantic attitude, Cavalli also showed silk crepe floor-length dresses embellished with lace, tulle and studs.
