I keep creating dreams. You always have to dream.

“I keep creating dreams. You always have to dream.”
“In all these years I pursued the dream of beauty. I created dresses for women who are the maximum expression of beauty and for men who need the beauty of women to complete themselves.”

1970 – 2010: 40 Years of Fashion
Roberto Cavalli turns forty. A significant birthday tinted with the colors and lights of a milestone year. The Roberto Cavalli fashion adventure begins in Paris in 1970, where the very first show was held. A journey full of ideas, creativity and success, projected into the future.

The Fall Winter 2010-2011 collection evokes a haute bohemian image, extremely feminine, sophisticated, and luxurious but outside the rules of the bourgeoisie.
The silhouette is created through a delicate play of layers that create a loose and unstructured shape.
Tailcoats inspired by high military uniforms.
Coats in tapestry brocade.
Furs, made superlight by the movement of delicate linings, created by assembling pieces of mink, astrakan, pekan, sable, raccoon fin and fox worked together to create a new animalier mantle.
Shirts with a masculine cut made out of a mousseline, crepe de chine and georgette patchwork.
Sarouel pants, embroidered and doubled.
Slim trousers in transparent silk over shorts, worn under structured peplums.
Jumpsuits in crepe de chine lined with a creponne froissé.
Floating dresses in tulle with lasercut embroidered cut-outs and hand painted animal prints with delicate, etched gold lines.
Everything is treated, pressed, washed and cut, for a used and lived-in effect.
The color palette plays on neutral tones, from taupe to nude through the entire range of beige and faux blacks with a hint of antique red.

JUST CAVALLI Fall/Winter 2010-2011

Posted on Facebook on February 25th 2010:
‘ Fantasy… fantasy… fantasy… I love to show my femininity … and I am happy to be young and I hate the old thoughts and the old habits. I adore creativity and I am myself a designer … I like Just Cavalli because it is free, exactly as I feel … many small pieces that I can mix and use in every moment of the day without rules … As I am … And my boyfriend loves me also for the way I dress myself’
A Just Cavalli fan

The Just Cavalli Autumn / Winter 2010-2011 collection presents a structured silhouette. The entire body is covered through the use of layered garments. Strong colours and signature Cavalli’s patterns re-interpreted with a sense of rock in mind. Micro dresses worn over chiffon blouses with wide sleeves. Oversized fur jackets, chunky patchwork knits matched with skinny pants or mini tartan kilts. An eclectic mix of textures and proportions.

Colours: bright. Red, blue and yellow are the key notes in every outfit. Treated animal prints are presented on an acid coloured base.

Accessories: ankle boots with rubber plateau and crochet details.
Oversized custom jewellery with large charms in silver, gold or pink gold metal.
