For a contemporary line of flamboyant Italian heritage, Just Cavalli’s fall collection made sense. There was a retro-futurism to designer Roberto Cavalli’s Sixties/Seventies-inspired base silhouettes of neat A-line miniskirts and shirtdresses, some of which zipped up and molded around the bodice in a way that brought to mind Louis Vuitton. So did the cropped pants in jarring graphic prints, many done in the most unpretty throwback palette of mustard yellow, brown and maroon.
The look may have been made trendy by another designer, but Cavalli topped it with his own signature flare: flashy, furry coats that came long-haired and nubby in neutrals and brights. They brought the collection home to the house of Cavalli.
