172. Will You Live Without Me?

Roberto Cavalli172. Will You Live Without Me?

I entered the Christmas spirit!  I spend several hours wandering among the shops in Florence. I do not have a clear idea of ​​what to put under the tree for my children and friends… is not easy!

I have some meetings, nothing interesting to bring to your desire to know about my days…

After Christmas, I decided to spend a little holiday until the fifth of January with three of my children and grandchildren.  Nothing special to tell you, but very special to me!

So, I think I will leave you alone until 2013…

I will miss you a lot… I will have a great desire to speak to you and to tell you about my days. Your presence in my life has become addictive.  I shall be waiting for your comments, hoping that there will be new friends every day.

In the meantime I will tell my friend Giorgio Verzoletto, the special and talented person who takes good care of the technical side of my BLOG, to entertain you with pictures of beautiful models wearing Cavalli and the talented actresses who, in these days of great parties, will wear my dresses!

It will be just my hoarse voice… unheard.  My presence and imagination will always be with you!

Merry Christmas
I LOVE YOU
Roberto Cavalli

15. Snow… Snow… Snow…

15. Snow… Snow… Snow…

Snow… snow… snow… When I was a boy I liked snow. It made me happy, today not so much!

Florence with snow

From my window everything is white and the flakes fall thick, I think tonight it will already be deep. This is not usual for Florence, and everything becomes more complicated. To get to my house, situated on a small hill overlooking Florence, I have to take an uphill winding road.
It will not be easy to go out and come back home. If it snows longer, I shall have to stay stranded in the house and wait until the weather improves!
Even Lupo is a little shocked. The snow is a novelty for him and when we do go out he is not accustomed to sinking into the snow and does not have the courage to run.

I was thinking what I remember about snow, so as to be able to tell you of some moments in my life – but nothing special. I am ashamed to say it, but I do not know how to ski and I hate the cold, maybe it’s an excuse.
When I was a boy, skiing was a sport or pastime of the wealthy. The economic conditions of my family were not such that we could afford to ski!

Sometimes, I like to fly my helicopter over the peaks of Abetone, altitude about 5000 feet, among the snow-capped peaks. I land next to a refuge where they know me well and welcome me.
My kids and friends go skiing until dusk. I wait for them in the refuge in the heat of the fireplace. They will often cook some tortellini they have hand made especially for me!
We haven’t been there for about two years now. I’ll have to re-establish this again – very special and great fun!

My dear friends I embrace you

I LOVE YOU

Roberto Cavalli

Welcome!

Finally I managed to create my own Blog!

This is my way to feel close to you, to talk with you, to listen and advise, to share with you my successes and sometimes my problems.

Do you think you know me? Do you think you know everything about me? I will show you that maybe I am as you dreamed but like all humans I have my weaknesses. I also have my dreams.

We’ll talk about fashion, of course, since fashion is a philosophy of life we share which takes us away from life’s little daily problems. When you’re well dressed and feel good about yourself it is easier to face the world, its risks and see its opportunities. Embracing fashion will change your life!!

We’ll talk about this wonderful world which our very mindsets are bringing low. We’ll talk about your problems, whether you are young, or old like me. How to combat violence and how to gain respect by respecting others.

I will try to make you smile, not with fairy tales but with real stories of my life. A long life, full of emotions and adventures. I am here to prod you, to help and encourage you. Do not forget that I love you!
