My muse was a young woman who became part of my collection…
From the moment I saw her walking along the river which passes through the city of Thimphu… the capital of Bhutan, a small country located at 3000 meters above sea level, at the slopes of the Himalayas… a country characterized by the richness of its traditions and images, which combine nature and religion…
His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen, a young couple as delicate and charming as the lifestyle of this fascinating country invited me, giving me the opportunity to discover this country, the only one in the world to measure its richness according to the value of happiness …
I could not return to my world without making an effort to convey the emotions I felt… I was awed by their purity and the beauty of their colors!”
The Just Cavalli Fall/Winter 2013-2014 collection describes an exotic and exciting journey which appears to hover between ancient and contemporary times: the lightness of the fabrics and the magnificence of the traditional Asian decorative elements are embedded in the prints and highlighted in the textiles.
The silk jumpsuits’ flowing silhouette enhances the femininity of the female body by gliding almost imperceptibly along the skin, and super-slim pants are combined with matching or contrasting printed outerwear.
The dresses are short and sensual, paired with deconstructed jackets; or long and fitted, completed by fur micro vests.
The knitwear plays with volumes, often in dégradé jacquard animal print, occasionally embellished by quilted silk sleeves, or high-neck and sleeveless in soft angora wool.
The prints, which represent the most distinctive and iconic Cavalli element, are inspired by the traditional Bhutanese culture and garments.
Opulent metallic sequin embroideries are placed on pants and jackets and are also used to decorate the denim.
The colours are vibrant and intense: blue, orange, yellow, red and jade. Boots with a red cylinder heel are created in python leather and jaguar printed pony or in leather combined with goatskin.
Velvet open-toe ankle-boots, with stylized flame print soles and the same red heel, are decorated with small buttons.
The wraparound style acetate sunglasses come in bright colors with mirrored lenses.
Some outfits present the refined necklaces created with silk threads and jade ornaments, worn by the Bhutanese aristocracy and called “tears of the gods”.
