Following the departure of creative director Peter Dundas last October, Roberto Cavalli’s design team took the reins of the brand. And the results were really good, actually. For fall, the fashion house hosted a presentation at Milan’s prestigious Palazzo Crespi. The richness of the venue perfectly matched the opulence of the clothes, which looked more like couture creations than ready-to-wear options. The house of Roberto Cavalli built a name for itself not only for its exuberant aesthetic, but also for its upscale Florentine craftsmanship, both of which the fall lineup celebrated. The brand presented a range of beautifully manufactured dresses, which were a compilation of Roberto Cavalli’s iconography — micro floral motifs, wild animal patterns and snakeskin prints — that were combined in both minidresses and gowns. Intarsia, embroideries, appliqués: All these techniques were used to deliver a precious extravaganza, worked in a restrained color palette of white, black and brown with hints of yellow.
