Roberto Cavalli SS15 @ Milan Fashion Week

Interview: Roberto Cavalli – Menswear Spring/Summer 2015 Collection in Milan in Milan Fashion Week: Men’s SS15

At Roberto Cavalli, welcome to the flashy, buzzy and sporty Miami of the 70s/80s, where guys don prints and colours.Welcome to Miami, says Roberto Cavalli. The flashy, buzzy and sporty Miami of the 70s/80s, where guys don prints and colours. A 70s Ferrari belonging to Roberto himself, plunges us into the atmosphere of the decade. And summer comes to life across the season’s signature motif: palm leaves and exotic flowers photographed by the designer explode onto the clothes. This relaxed wardrobe is dominated by material plays, with python print making a strong return, treated in various different ways. Comfort comes to the forefront in the form of harem pants, long tunics, open shirts, right down to the sneakers. Leather is highly present, taking on a light, perforated look, bringing a touch of rock’n’roll to the collection. The label makes a successful return to its roots, extoling a style that will surely be appreciated by 80s rock-god Steven Tyler on the front row. Interview: Roberto Cavalli: Sometimes I open my garage, I see her and I say ‘you are mine’ and I feel proud. It’s funny. And it is around that story from the 1970s, that I base my show today because I created an Italian playboy, much like Miami in the 1970s, a beautiful Italian of course, with the chain, with the shirt. He is somebody that loves himself and he wants to show that he has good taste and he wants to show that he really is the best. This collection says that I want to take this playboy to Miami. Honestly, I was thinking about myself as a playboy in St Tropez more than Miami but I just opened one club in Miami. Miami also gave me more opportunities to use palm trees and these kinds of things. I think he will really enjoy it. With the black and white, my colours come out and they are easier to understand. I mixed white with all the colours, and in the winter, black matches with all the colours. That is what I am about: colours and positivity. Music from the show
