323. Happy Birthday Ester!

Roberto-Cavalli-with-Ester-Sara-Anna-and-Gabriele323. Happy Birthday Ester!

We celebrated my granddaughter Ester’s birthday.

How quickly they grow! It seems that only yesterday I could hold her in my arms… I turned around for what seems like just a moment and she has already matured into a fine young lady!

Maybe it’s a cliché, but I have a feeling that today you grow faster than ever before… maybe it’s the Internet, or perhaps when you are young you have the feeling that time passes at a slower pace…

We should try to spend more time with our children and our grandchildren… these are the most precious moments that life gives us…

Tempus fugit, time flies, as the Latins said. Time runs fast and does not wait for us. It does not allow us the luxury of lingering and savouring those special moments in small sips, like a fine wine…

Every birthday at the Cavalli home turns into a big party! The little ones are in turmoil for several days… they cannot wait … it’s a great opportunity to gather together and celebrate!

I must confess that I look forward to these celebrations too… I like to celebrate these moments with my children and my grandchildren… these are the moments that fill my heart!

Now I cannot wait to celebrate the next birthday and, happily surrounded by so many children and grandchildren, I will not have long to wait!

Un grande bacio…

I LOVE YOU

321 A few days of complete relaxation…

Roberto Cavalli321 A few days of complete relaxation…

I decided to take a few days of complete relaxation…

I chose a resort that is located in the heart of Tuscany, at Bagno Vignoni in the Val D’Orcia, not far from Montalcino where they produce the famous Brunello wine.

Here the landscape is marked by green, gently rounded hills undulating to rhythms you can see and wish you could hear… how to capture those unheard rhythms in our designs?

The rows of cypress trees are characteristic of these places and help to impress the landscape on our visual memory.

We are not far from Florence… a short helicopter flight… in about 35 minutes we arrive at our destination.

Relaxation, rest for mind and body for a few days… I shall be completely unplugged…

Warm thermal waters and Vinotherapy, whose name says it all, to prepare me for what promises to be a very interesting autumn.

Next week I will begin to work on the new collections. February awaits us… it is just around the corner.

Lupo drops me a hint… it is time for our walk… he wants to explore these new places and mark his territory in his inimitable fashion…

Un grosso bacio…

I LOVE YOU

320. Going for a Walk with Lupo…

Roberto Cavalli with Lupo320. Going for a Walk with Lupo…

After dinner I decided to take Lupo @RC_Lupo out for our usual evening walk…

I love the smell of autumn… so relaxing… you can already savour the aroma of roasted chestnuts… you begin to feel a chill in the air… nature around me has already changed her dress and the colours are now soft, warm… rich shades that will tend to golden yellows and browns with flashes of red…

I light up a cigar and Lupo looks at me with an air of reproach… I should quit smoking… the scent of the tobacco is too strong for his sensitive nose…

Lupo is a loyal companion, he doesn’t ask anything of me… he is always by my side and is used to traveling by sea and flying in a helicopter without complaint…

I love it when, together, we work on the new collections. He examines each model on the catwalk with his authoritarian look, then turns to me, nods his head and I understand that he likes the dress…

Often, during our evening walks I talk to him as you would talk to a friend… you know, a friend who knows how to listen to you…

Sometimes I think anyone who sees us will think I am crazy!
This is our little secret…

I LOVE YOU
