Revel in Roberto Cavalli at Milan Fashion Week AW10/11

I had a fantastic afternoon completely indulging myself in Dublin fashion, (see tomorrow’s post) but not before I spent the morning perusing photo’s from the collections shown in Italy this week. On a more specific note, namely this pair of gold printed trousers… Over-here please, I think you’ll find I ordered them, waitress!

On any other occasion, velvet waistcoats, animal-prints, fringed scarves, brocade jackets and billowing fabrics, may sound like the contents of your grandmother’s closet (I’m using that word because I think it sounds better in this context than ‘wardrobe’). It was, in fact, Roberto Cavalli‘s AW10/11 collection show, at Milan Fashion Week yesterday. A collection that was actually far from anything my grandmother would wear and one of the most relaxed Cavilli collections I’ve seen. Known usually for ultra-feminine pieces that are at home on the red carpet, this collection will look more at home on the street. Though, said street would naturally be in Florence or Rome rather than rainy old Dublin, of course.

His multi-layered, multi-textured looks were created from what looked like the most luxuriant fabrics and embellishments. I loved the use of Navy-blue and sleek black silhouettes in shows during London Fashion Week and Roberto Cavalli produced similar looks. Although his palette was more varied; not only in his use of gold braid and brocade, but also by including softer colours, like light greys, winter nudes and the odd flash of something richer, like deep, burnt-orange. It’s a beautiful collection and again the dark blacks and blues are what grabbed my attention. I will be thinking tailored, dévoré velvet jackets and lots (more) scarves for this autumn/winter.
