Immediate, feminine, sassy, and fun. At Roberto Cavalli, the resort 24 season comes with an effortlessly cool vibe. The Sicilian roots of the house’s Creative Director, Fausto Puglisi, find western references in a wardrobe of attractive pieces that are immediately linked to the brand’s DNA.
Legendary ’70s hippie Cavalli style is revisited through a contemporary filter for ready-to-wear staples designed to impeccably balance sensuality and toned-down elegance. An overall feeling of summer coolness is conveyed through the combination of delicate cottons and lace, exquisitely matched in a variety of black and white silhouettes, ranging from bell-bottoms worn with cropped tops to elegant dresses with cuts that flatter the curves of the body.
The Sicilian coral tradition is celebrated with the use of precious buttons that enrich elegant textured skirts, while a Cavalli archival pattern, depicting a lush Mediterranean garden where a snake slithers through lemon trees, appears on long jersey and lycra dresses, as well as in voluminous cotton skirts with satin ruffles and cotton trench coats. The bold exuberance of these shapes is counterbalanced by the quintessential graphic of cotton and chenille knit styles with a fishnet-like appearance, while Cavalli’s unique artisan craftsmanship steals the spotlight in intricate pieces of intarsia leather and laced pants infused with a 70’s rock ‘n’ roll vibe.
Inspired by the opulent atmospheres of the cult TV series “Wild Lotus”, a Hawaiian pattern depicting a tropical jungle populated by a seductive leopard is printed on sheer, slant-cut dresses, frilled miniskirts, plus languid devoré dresses and bathrobes in military green tone. While leopard chiné patterns reveal the brand’s wilder face, a variety of tailoring motifs introduce tailoring precision to the collection.
A sensual Mediterranean elegance is injected into the men’s collection, offering a multifaceted wardrobe for men who aren’t afraid to be bold.
Impeccable wool and linen suits, in a black and white palette, show off double-breasted boxy pants paired with baggy pants. Silky silk shirts and pajama bottoms are printed with the collection’s signature Lemon print, with a whimsical vibe balanced by essential linen knit tops with a distressed look. Napa, suede, and snakeskin-print leather make for slightly baggy jackets and pants, while a Hawaiian landscape print adds a summer vibe to the collection. Leather sandals with straps enriched with a metallic RC Mirror Snake buckle and Texan boots revisited with an urban touch complete the collection.
