Just Cavalli: Hippie de Luxe
Milan Fashion Week Day Two
19 Сентября 2014
With California’s Coachella music festival hosting Hollywood celebrities and England’s Glastonbury festival no longer about counter culture, the current Seventies revival is very hippie de luxe.
The Just Cavalli show has always been fashionably Bohemian, and since floating chiffon and billowing skirts are back in fashion in Milan, Roberto Cavalli’s feather-light maxi dresses offering leg room up to the waist, his flower prints, and even floral overalls were on target.
This show proved how the Seventies should be revisited: in fresh colours, instead of murky mustard and muddy brown. By inserting tailored summer trousers suits or a white broderie anglaise dress, Just Cavalli offered a 21st-century Bohemian rhapsody. The look was not so much new, as fresh.
