Roberto Cavalli: A Show of Light

Milan Fashion Week Day Four

21 Сентября 2014

“I feel happy with summer. I like the light, the sun and the colours — it is the easiest time for me,” said Roberto Cavalli, front-of-stage by his catwalk made of wood planking, like a path to the beach except with shiny gilded sides.

“The Light of Summer” was the show’s title, and Cavalli started with a display of swimming-pool blue, sunshine yellow and juicy oranges on wildly patterned dresses. Oh no! Please not those 1970s again!

But Cavalli’s illumination was much more subtle than a game of tones. There was light seeping through a white lace dress, and emanating from a white fur bag. Black dresses filtered light through transparent fabrics. And brightness bounced off crocodile skin.

Sparkles glimmered from dark denim, or a white shirt set off blue-jean fabric. The white materials were often crunchy and three dimensional in their different takes on lace.

Maybe it is Cavalli’s passion for nature photography that has fed into a sense of subtlety and shadow play. Just for once, the collection would have looked just as good photographed in black and white.
