Roberto Cavalli SS line inspired by Indian warm colours
Jun '13
For Spring Summer 2014, the Cavalli Class man is a cosmopolitan traveller moving between two cities with completely different souls, not only due to their geographical position, but also for their lifestyles, colours, tastes and fragrances:  Los Angeles and Bombay.

In Los Angeles life is split between a job in finance and dark rock nights. Impeccable suits in shades of grey and blue and total black glam tuxes are relaborated in unusual materials.

For his free time, the looks are inspired by the magic and warm colours of India. Curry orange, yellow, golden beige and burgundy.

Shirts and printed sweaters seem to have been taken from ancient paintings and mixed with ethnic-kaleidoscopes that recall the decorations on rugs and animalier makeovers.

The more formal section of the collection is divided in two universes: one that ranges from shades of grey, where the finest super-twisted wool is blended with silk and technical fabrics to create impeccable suits that conceal printed and jacquard linings.

The other universe goes from the deep blue of tailored suits to all the shades of sky blue through to white.

Deconstructed unlined double-breasted jackets, overprinted suits in shades of blue, handcrafted fabrics in two-tone cotton in tones of blue and micro-patterned jacquards for a chic summer look.

For his evenings, the Cavalli Class man turns into a rock star, reinterpreting the city of Los Angeles in the sixties. The collection has black appeal alternated by strong decisive flashes of fuchsia and black-white.

Among the most important pieces are zipped nappa biker jackets with a  “crocodile-effect”, tuxedo jackets with snakeskin embossed lapels and extreme croc-jacquard jackets in shades of black and fuchsia combined with black bikers.
