Attending Roberto Cavalli Fall/Winter 2019 – #MFW

Heartbreaking news strikes Cavalli lovers like myself this month. First, the resignation of creative director Paul Surridge. A week later, News that all stores in North America were to be shut down… Even in prime shopping districts and flagships like NYC’s Madison Avenue, Rodeo Drive In Beverly Hills and Bal Harbour in Miami are closed. I’m personally devastated by the news of the Madison Avenue shut down. I traveled to NYC quite often, and I always made it a priority to visit my Cavalli Family at the Madison Avenue boutique who have helped bring Roberto Cavalli to Canada! Regardless of the recent disappointments, I wanted to share my experience attending Paul Surriges last collection for Roberto Cavalli. 

Ironically to everything mentioned above, this F/W 19 collection actually happened to be my favourite show of the Milan Fashion Week season…and one of my favourite fashion shows of all time! 

Combining both mens and womenswear F/W into this one show. I loved all the loud prints and bright colours! I don’t think there’s a piece that I didn’t like from this show. My favourite piece was the multi coloured shearling skin jacket which I absolutely need right now! 

I’m excited to see who they bring on board for spring/summer and I’m hopeful that the brand will make a return very soon!

Until Next time, 

Sergio. 

Attending Versace Fall/Winter 2019

Versace is always my most anticipated show during Milan Fashion Week. Considering the fact that the Pre-Fall show in NYC was so #MAJOR. I was excited to see what Donatella would come up with for Fall/Winter 2019. 

Having had my outfit pre-planed (Head to toe Versace of course) and having picked up my  invitation at the Via Montenapoleone Versace Boutique earlier that day, It was now show time! 

Kia Gerber, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid entered one after another. Gurung glamour has now become a popular trend. I was honestly a little surprised that Donatella took this collection in that route. However, I’m not mad at it! My favourite look would have to be the blue crystal beaded dress. But ultimately, I loved almost everything from this collection. Closing the show was former supermodel Stephanie Seymour wearing a black crystal beaded gown. This was the first time she hit the Versace runway in 20 years! What a way to close the show! 

Until next season, 

Sergio.

Attending Rosa Cha F/W 2019 – #NYFW

Rosa Cha built its reputation as one of Brazil’s most prominent premium brands by offering consumers a complete lifestyle collection, high-end swimwear to luxe ready to wear. Considering the fact that this was my last day in New York, I was excited to have been able to attend their F/W 2019 show. 

The silver glitter covered runway made for the perfect canvas to introduce Rosa Cha’s  unique proportions of this seasons line. Oversized sporty pieces were paired with perfectly fitted ones which made for an overall effortless elegance. I noticed that the cream and burgundy colour pallets are a huge trend during this season along with the use of sequin fabrics. Can I get a #YAS for sequins?  I’m enjoying the fact that more and more brands are starting to embrace the sparkle by incorporating more glamour into casual wear. 

I’m looking forward to attending the show again next season and seeing some fabulous woman-wear! 

Until next time, 

Sergio.
