On Saturday I attended Roberto Cavalli’s Spring 2010 collection. The collection had a heavy mix of feminine and masculine pieces.
I found it very interesting that Cavalli known for very overtly sexy looks, opted to pair soft feminine floaty dresses with pant suits. It had a ‘wear all your clothes at once’ type of feel to it.
A maxi print dress would billow down the runway with pinstriped pants and a blazer, or just pants revealing an open back.
Die hard Cavalli fans may have been shocked by this change in direction, but he did show some more feminine sexy gowns and dresses towards the end of the presentation.
These pink and ivory dresses were very cute and girlie with ruffled details going across the body or down one shoulder.
The colour palette wasn’t as bright as I had expected. Greys, creams, pinks, ivory and navy was presented with of course lots of floral prints.
It will be interesting to see if these looks are worn like the runway, or the feminine and masculine pieces are separated.
Here is a picture of the backdrop after the show. I loved it as it looked like the veranda of a beautiful country garden home.
The show moved so fast, that this was the only picture I took from the show that came out well.
Nina Garcia is the one in the white dress in the front row, who was sitting with the rest of her Marie Claire team.
