132. I Think of a Long September…
My head begins to think again about the duties and problems that are waiting for me upon my return…
I’ll be at the factory on Wednesday. My first encounter will be with the collection of JUST CAVALLI. Before the holidays I had given so many ideas that were to be realized, I am curious and anxious, I do not have much time to make big changes…
- Tuesday, 4 September, I will be leaving for New York.
- Two days later, the President of Panama will send his own plane to pick me up. His son will open a boutique ROBERTIO CAVALLI and want me to be present at the inauguration.
- The next day I shall be in Los Angeles. My boutique on Rodeo Drive is organizing a mega dinner with the best customers for the arrival of the new collection. I cannot miss it!
- It is not over here, I got an offer to open a CAVALLI CLUB in Las Vegas and it seems a very interesting idea. I need to check if the space they offered is suitable for the project.
- Two days in Las Vegas and start again, to Madrid! On September 14 I will inaugurate my first boutique in Spain! With this investment I am proud to celebrate my confidence in the future of Spain and its fine people.
- Two days in Las Vegas and start again, to Madrid! On September 14 I will inaugurate my first boutique in Spain! Embarrasses me to “celebrate” in a country so worn down by many problems.
I will be back in Florence on September 15, Lupo will assail me with his exuberant displays of affection and I’ll have to dive immediately into the atmosphere of the fashion shows! On September 21st for the JUST CAVALLI fashion show and on September 24th for the ROBERTO CAVALLI line.
I have a lot of anxiety for both fashion shows. JUST CAVALLI, the young collection, has suffered recently due to the problems of the ITR, the company from Isernia had the license for the JUST CAVALLI line. For some mysterious and unclear reason the ITR were forced to fail, or rather seek bankruptcy protection, to safeguard the workplace for ITR employees without thinking of the small companies and their employees who worked for ITR and where forced to close. Even my thriving business has suffered enormous damage due to a person supported by someone “important” and typically absurd Italian laws!
I decided to dedicate a lot of time and ideas to JUST CAVALLI and I’m satisfied… The results are already good and I want to return this young brand to the splendors of six years ago!
It will be up to you to let me know if I am the Roberto Cavalli you still esteem!
The collection and Roberto Cavalli fashion show will be completely new. I have created a collection that is modern and sexy for an ageless woman!
Leap years have always been lucky years for me. I was born on Friday, in a leap year and with a shirt! My mom always told me this story, I did not believe it until the birth of my niece Maria Carla. I saw her born… she came to light in a large white envelope, white fat that wrapped around the little body, “the shirt” is a rare case and so lucky!
Alla prossima… con un grande bacio!
I LOVE YOU
