155. Maldives… Just Relax!

Roberto Cavalli - Maldive155. Maldives … Just Relax!

Hundreds, perhaps thousands of atolls in a sea of incredible colors!

Malé is the capital. It is the only city in this great archipelago populated by a multitude of islands.

We chose the island where the Four Seasons Hotel is located. This is a beautiful structure with five restaurants and one hundred and twenty bungalows on the beach.

Arriving at the island is fun. A red and white seaplane is the taxi for the hotel guests. I had never landed on the water before.  It was a fun new experience!

Roberto Cavalli - MaldivesThere are many ways to spend the day… the most special is snorkeling and spending some time in different parts of the island spying on the tropical fish…

The Maldives is protected by one of the most beautiful coral reefs, and so it is wonderful to dive and admire the thousands of different species of fish… brilliantly colorful!

Roberto Cavalli - MaldivesBecause of my two broken ribs I have had to take refuge in the Maldives, leaving my programmed adventures in the north of Australia behind me. I therefore had to leave behind many sporting activities such as windsurfing and Jet Skiing…

I spend my days lying in the sun, and in the water with a mask, fins and a small waterproof camera… a lot of enjoyable diving!

The seabed makes me dream.  We dive into a world we know but that is not ours.  It is a world we enter gently, as if asking the permission of its colorful inhabitants!

The past three days have flown by. The thought of my next collections has not let me fully relax my mind!

The red and white seaplane is taking me back to Malé.  In two hours I will be on the plane flying towards Italy. This evening I will hug Lupo.  

Tomorrow I shall transfer all the colors I have in my eyes to my fabrics…

I LOVE YOU
Roberto Cavalli

    pesci con i quali, se potesse, ci farebbe delle pellicce. i suoi post sono uno schiaffo alla miseria e, cosa ben piu grave, i suoi vestiti sono un INSULTO ai poveri animali che lei fa uccidere. vergogna
