Just Cavalli AW13 Milan Fashion Week
Designer Roberto Cavalli and wife Eva tap into a younger, hipper market with their funky femme Just Cavalli line. The show featured one of fashions fresh and fabulous ‘it’ girls, Georgia May Jagger. Fans came out full force in Milan for the AW13 runway show in support of the sexy cool style. The decidedly chic globe trotters- most of them model, singer | actress types wearing creations by the designer were showing off with ultimate admiration. Fashionable attendees in Just Cavalli included: Mary Charteris, Portia Freeman, Iggy Azalea, Anna Oxa, and Francesco Sarcina. Melissa Satta with a Roberto Cavalli jacket and Manuela Arcuri wore Class Roberto Cavalli.
There was a cultured feel delivered with the obvious sass for Fall 2013 collection. Sleek silhouettes were fitted with an option for layering. Intricate prints with rich colors added vibrancy to more simple ensembles, becoming a little more daring when mixed together, and less dominant when paired with a solid, especially black. The exotic influences plus the inclusion of tiger and dragon motifs were drawn from an inspirational trip to Bhutan.
‘ … I am very pleased with my design … my colors … and my ideas! My muse was a young woman who became part of my collection … From the moment I saw her walking along the river which passes through the city of Thimphu … the capital of Bhutan, a small country located at 3000 meters above sea level, at the slopes of the Himalayas … a country characterized by the richness of its traditions and images, which combine nature and religion…” – Roberto Cavalli.
Brocade fabrics and other textures like quilted components and knitted pieces added depth and dimension to lean cuts and leggy looks. Jagger closed the show in a stunning short hemmed number in red + black (accented with sequins). A nice variety of shorty frocks, long dresses, pegged pants, jackets, and coats came together for a modernly pieced cohesive capsule.
