Roberto Cavalli F15 (49)Inspired by China, Roberto Cavalli took a very sophisticated view of Shanghai and the contemporary art district of Peking and thus bringing a very modern and precious view of the Far East.

Aptly titled “Cavalli’s new China Girl,” the collection took iconic Chinese elements and turned them into luxurious details and leitmotifs of style.

Oversize gold “pagoda” buttons punctuate the dresses, coats and maxi-gilets at a raised waist, to create an elongated silhouette. Ming vase inspired floral motifs in golden metal climb up the transparent Plexi glass heels of ankle boots worn with dresses both short and super short and semi-flats worn with loose, tailored pants.
