209. Budva, one of the Pearls of the Mediterranean Sea!

Roberto Cavalli209. Budva, one of the Pearls of the Mediterranean Sea!

By now you should know of my great passion for sailing! A passion begun with a small ten meter cabin cruiser… I used to spend the weekend on it with my children, Cristiana and Tomaso…

A passion that led me to sail around the Mediterranean sea several times. But only recently, because of a technical problem with Freedom, have I discovered one of the pearls of the Mediterranean, Budva.

August 2011… Adriatic sea… I was sailing off the Montenegro coast when the sophisticated Bat-zodiac dashboard alerted me of a technical problem with the engines… nothing serious thankfully, but I decided to put in to port to verify the nature of the fault.

I checked the nautical maps and found that the nearest port was Budva. I set the GPS and pointed the bow in that direction…

Budva, a lovely little town – one of the oldest on the Adriatic Sea with its 3500 years of history – is wedged between the mountains and the sea… with inviting sandy beaches…

Budva has become my secret hideaway, since then I have returned several times… this year I was invited to a fashion show entirely dedicated to my fashion.

I leave Sardinia and after a short flight I land at Tivat airport which is only 10 km from Budva. I make a quick stop at the hotel before heading to the press conference. As always, the journalists ask me a lot of questions about my collections… about myself and I realize that everyone reads my blog!

I have a little time before the event tonight so I decide to take a walk along the seafront… an aperitif… some pictures…

A fabulous evening… held in the main square in front of the old town of Budva… I presented my latest collection spring/summer 2013 and a retrospective of the most beautiful dresses of the last fifteen years.

The next day is dedicated entirely to exploring the area and discovering the wonderful colors and hues of Montenegro… who knows, maybe my next collection will be inspired by these places…

People here give me a very warm welcome… unpretentious people… genuine… but unfortunately I have to return to Milan. My many commitments do not allow me to spend a few more days in this beautiful land that is Montenegro…

Vi abbraccio…

I LOVE YOU
Roberto Cavalli
