Groovy Mood Roberto Cavalli Menswear Autumn Winter 2011-2012

“Groovy is a lifestyle, a man who leaves a masculine, strong, sensual imprint”
Roberto Cavalli

The three-piece suits – jacket-trousers-waistcoats – based on a formal appearance while constructing a contemporary shape and respecting the male body’s architecture. The jacket hugs the shoulders and bust with broad lapels. Straight trousers follow the contours of the thighs, widening slightly at the hem. The waistcoat protects the chest. The colours, decidedly masculine but not traditional, range from camel to rust, grey to petroleum blue. All are hues that convey respectability, concreteness and authoritativeness.

The jeans, re-use classic styles and American manufacture, even when they are printed with images of old leather inlays. They are teamed with shirts in silk jacquard, printed jersey and soft flannel, or with thick wool cardigans in stitches that copy the scales on reptiles. The scarves and foulards have the task of highlighting the big impact of colour.

A man who always pushes aside macho roughness in order to rediscover his masculine side. A man who offers himself to a woman as a pure bearer of strong passions that deliver and show respect.
