There will be plenty of shining moments for pre-fall, if Italian designers have anything to do with it. Roberto Cavalli, for one, poured it on via lavish cascades of sequins, beads and crystals. “To me, this collection is a return to Cavalli’s heritage, and the brand’s tradition in beading allowed me to fashion an explosion of light,” he said. To wit: Copper or gold beaded tops and minidresses shimmered under black leather jackets, while shiny camouflage sweaters added glitz to sporty ensembles. At night, Cavalli opted for Charleston-esque cocktail dresses or sweeping printed Grecian gowns.
