Top 10 Picks 1
Roberto Cavalli evolves the elegance and tailoring of the last collection, freeing the man from the rigour of Winter and dressing him with the freshness and positivity of Summer. 2
"... The freedom to be, to do, to want, to dream and to create, captured in a moment that I love to call 'Riviera': sea, cheerfulness, happiness, colour ... a relaxed and groovy state of mind ... A perfect place to encounter different cultures and to compare different thoughts, different styles: this is the inspiration of my collection ... " says Roberto Cavalli. 3
The jacket is rigorously cut with a close-fitting back, a narrow front with generously proportioned, embroidered lapels. 4
Italian tailoring is enriched with colour, embroidered thread and embellishments. 5
Leather is the protagonist for much of the collection: American inspiration for blazers and jackets made in suede and python with precious tassles, paired with denim and linen in bright, bold colours. 6
The casual tuxedo suits are illuminated with sashes of embroidered silk.
The silhouette enhances the long line of the body. 7
The loafers are made from an intricate woven leather with python detailing, characterised by handmade finishing and assembly; an expression of pure Florentine artisanship. 8
The pants harmoniously follow the line of the leg. 9
Authentic masculine tailoring fabrics, such as mohair, grain de poudre and linen/silk, are interpreted through the use of colour and specialised weaving techniques.

Prints are present as all-over micro-designs, vertical graphics and photographic reinterpretations of specialised leather processing from the archives of Cavalli.

This is my absolutly favourite collection of S/S 12! Everything was perfect; the location, the show, the models, the atmosphere and the collection itself of course :) Combining the glamour of old Jetset with refined, italian design and luxurious fabrics. I love the confidence and the elegance of the looks.

How do you like the collection?

I want your life. That looked like a blast.

I like to collection but I don't think anyone in L.A. would wear it, too formal. This is such a casual city! It's kind of a shame but there you have it.

Keep up the great work! I'm really enjoying your coverage.
