MFW: Roberto Cavalli
By: Tamara Arnew

Roberto Cavalli’s Fall 2013 collection was standing on stardust, blurred baroque floral and pretty young things at Milan Fashion Week. With Studio 54 as inspiration and disco at The Ritz it seemed highly adept that the print and excess designer would choose to work from such multi-media and visual extravagance. Digital florals have yet to be seen in the manipulated black and white moodiness done by Cavalli, opening looks were printed silk and shaggy dyed fur combinations with enamel choker details. 

The “Ultimate Revenge for Disco” followed with chainmail mini dresses and leather gloves that were alternated between selective chanteuse velvet and chiffon numbers with understated gold, red, navy and indigo. Metal floral cuffs and jeweled high necklines foiled to bared leg, which seemed glamorous in a Nico centric way.  Fiorucci may have hosted the Studio 54 opening party but Cavalli has roused the Velvet Underground look with romanticism and smokiness.
