An explosion of color inspired by an imaginary visit to Italy’s and the world’s most beautiful botanical gardens, such as the Hanbury garden in Ventimiglia, the Villa Demidoff park in Florence or the Altea garden of Valencia.
The silhouette is simple and immediate, easy, it wraps around the figure which is often highlighted by borders which frame the garments. A subtle Eighties inspiration reinterpreted in a modern guise and deprived of all rigidity. The oftentimes asymmetric hems with wrap over skirt effect for simple straight-line dresses contrast with soft mini dresses with maxi pull effect. Lace is an important detail decorating necklines and enhancing the back. The dresses find volumes in small frills around which wind python-effect metals. Part of the collection is dedicated to colder climates with comfortable color-print down jackets, small coats with soft rouches, sinuous dresses in heavy Milano stitch and short wrap-around dresses in warm modal jersey. The evening section consists of dresses almost completely embroidered with mermaid line or small mini dresses and corsets with embroidered fringes or wrap dresses with deep V necklines and long sleeves.
This collection is available at the Roberto Cavalli boutique at The Shops at Crystals.
