Roberto Cavalli MenswearFall Winter 2014 Milan Menswear

Runway Review
1/14/2014 Ed Kavishe/fashionwirepress.com

Roberto Cavalli’s menswear collection next fall and winter encapsulated his vision of a man who is free spirited, never dull, and always impeccably dressed.

“So many menswear collections are boring,” Cavalli said before his show. “I try not to make it boring.”

His womenswear collections usually revolve around sexy dresses done in animal prints, and Cavalli’s men’s line also heeds the call of the wild. An overcoat starts out as herringbone at the bottom and gradually transforms to zebra print at the top. A slim-cut suit was paired with rock’n’roll inspired creepers with studs around the sole or done up in leopard. The surface of leather in biker jackets is reworked with studs from within to resemble the blister-like surface of tropical lizards.

And where else but on Cavalli’s runway would you see a full-length fur coat done in a patchwork of black, white and red fox?

As for prints, they moved between animal patterns and graffiti, in line with the show’s street-art inspired set, where models meandered between large industrial frames and graffiti-painted boxes.
