Roberto Cavalli to open in Cannes

On the 18th of May, on occasion of the 64th Cannes Film Festival, Roberto Cavalli will open his first boutique at 67, Boulevard de la Croisette: the famed avenue representing the essence of style and French elegance.

Distributed over a surface of 200 square meters, the store will embody the modern elegance of the Cavalli world, and will affirm, in a spectacular way, the Maison’s concept of a “global fashion store”, already present in the grand Paris boutique.

The boutique, fully developed, will host the prêt-à-porter womenswear and menswear collections, as well as the accessories, eyewear, watch and underwear collections.

The layout of the space was studied in such a way to give emphasis to the various product categories present in the boutique. The first part will be dedicated entirely to accessories: handbags, small leather goods, belts, eyewear, jewelry and watches.
The second part will be dedicated to womenswear and men’s daywear, while the last part will be dedicated to the eveningwear collections, with the potential to be transformed into a private VIP area.

The whole boutique is characterized by a floor created in large slabs of dark brown quartzite mixed with crystal dust that together reflect the light within the space.
The walls and niches displaying the clothes have been realized in ivory stucco and dark brown stucco with gold tones, while the evening area is framed by an ambience treated with platinum-colored leaf applications.

The furniture was created in backlit crystal for the display of bags and accessories, while closets framed in mirrors will be present in the area dedicated to jewelry.

Furthermore, the rugs will be in dark brown pony while the ottomans and armchairs have been reupholstered in dark brown aged leather or leather printed in python.

“Cannes is the capital of cinema, the city of glamour and of seduction,” said Roberto Cavalli. “I wanted to created a boutique in which elegance dominates, both for women and for men, in a welcoming and exclusive atmosphere, in which each person can totally fulfill their dreams and desires”.

The opening of the boutique will be celebrated with a grand party the evening of May 18, 2011, during the 64th Cannes Film Festival.
