Spring/Summer 2015 Ready-To-Wear: Roberto Cavalli Women Collection

//Spring/Summer 2015 Ready-To-Wear: Roberto Cavalli Women Collection

Roberto Cavalli is my favourite out of many. His iconic, flamboyant designs add a little fun and vibrance to any runway or red carpet. This world renown designer ensures his designs are feisty and fabulous by overusing colour, dramatic prints and killer cuts.

Spring/Summer 2015 was no different. Roberto focused on daring, yet mesmerizing, prints which were integrated into an effortless summer perfection. For me, these are the perfect summer pieces. There is nothing I adore more than walking on the beach in a flowing halter neck maxi dress or strolling the city in a bright white mini. One thing that was reaffirmed from this runway is that Roberto Cavalli is far from boring. Instead he experiments and excels.

Feisty prints

This is by far one of my favourite Roberto Cavalli runways of all time. Here he has taken eccentric to a whole new level in some of his wildest design. These prints we would never normally wear, but the gorgeous understated cut and tailoring found in these ensembles, make these pieces extremely desirable. A combination of bold and bright colours, symbols and stripes exceed our expectations of even the most dramatic pieces and enter an arena of the unknown. Evidentially it works. This runway collection was well received, shining light on Roberto’s mastery once again.

Sheer transgression

Too often do we see sheer associated with elegance and femininity. This trend has been well and truly established on the runway over the past few seasons so now it’s time to add a little variation.

Roberto does something we would never ever expect. He transforms the sheer trend into an element of edginess and dramatic sophistication. First came sheer, and then came sheer transgression.

Roberto Cavalli has acted on the latter and through the combination of different materials such as leather he has added the much needed persona. My favourite is the tan mini skirt, never would we expect such a trend to be present in something other than mini or maxi pieces. Roberto once again proves experimenting is essential as opposed to optional. It is the key to keeping up with ever-changing trends.

Pussy bows

I wish you could have seen my reaction when I was exposed to the pussy bow trend on the Roberto Cavalli runway. Sure white is everything and completely on trend for SS15 but the pussy bow is my weakness, so much so that I squealed when I saw they were present. To me the pussy bow is powerful, feminine and absolutely exquisite. The pussy bow is symbolic of dominance and confidence.

First made iconic by Margaret Thatcher (the first woman prime minister in England) this trend proves an eternal success and it appears in and out of seasons. I fell in love with the Roberto Cavalli all over again.

Classic Cavalli

This is the Roberto we all know and love. Iconic are his daring, dramatic and darling show stopping pieces. These are every girl’s dream. These pieces are powerful and quite simply breath-taking leaving the whole front row speechless.

Once again Roberto has succeeded and these pieces are the epitome of his fashion status and creative vision.
