Backstage at Roberto Cavalli Fall 2012

MILAN, Feb 29, 2012/ — “My creativity is expressed through clothes which make the Cavalli woman a sensual and mysterious being,” said Roberto Cavalli about his Fall 2012 collection.

Backstage, it was up close and personal with the collection that has been dubbed as “the Eden of femininity.” And to celebrate it, Roberto Cavalli created the illusory mix of pythons leather printed with tiger or jaguar motifs, furs printed with python motif, pony skins transformed into crocodile to enhance the ‘trompe l’œil’ effect.

Haute artisanship prevails throughout the collection. Leather punched sequin mixed with micro feathers. Embroidery in relief with three-dimensional effects that recreate animal mantles or reptile scales.

Large necklaces and bracelets made of metal covered with python or colored enamel depicting flamingos, snakes, crocodiles, embellished with colored stones. Jockey hats covered with feathers, fur and crocodile.

The Florence bag is embellished with new details such as closures or strings of leather with buckles, inspired by the high quality of ‘hand made’ trunks. Pointy pump shoes and lace up boots in python, crocodile, ostrich and lizard.

Big sunglasses named Wild Diva with mirrored lenses have sharp, emphatic outlines, underlined by crocodile, ostrich or galuchat inlaid workings to create an iconic and glamorous style with a daring shape and bold colors.
