As many of you know – Roberto Cavalli is one of my favorite fashion houses of all time. Under Paul Surriges creative direction, I worked with the brand several time flying too NYC & Milan regularly for events and fashion shows. I even hosted two events for them in Toronto… up until their dramatic closing of all their north American boutiques and filing for bankruptcy.
Two years later…The brand seemed very generic and dull. Was Roberto Cavalli dead? NEVER!
The brand gave us the ultimate Uno reverse card by appointing Fausto Puglisi as the new creative director. As much as I loved Paul and his fresh approach to the brand. I did agree the brand did lose some of its sex appeal. We have to keep in mind that Paul came from the house of Zenya…A very preppy menswear brand. But Fausto Is all about the glamour and sex appeal.
Roberto Cavalli’s Fall Winter 2021 did not disappoint. Firstly, Faustos own interpretation of the signature parfum cavalli gown (Seen in the first image) left me speechless! The gray cheetah print fading into the black silk with matching contrasting leather boots.
I also….cant get over the combat boots with gold fangs details. THOSE I NEEDD!!!
Hopefully the pandemic will end soon and I can attend another Cavalli show soon.
Until next time,
