Roberto Cavalli’s Fall 2013 collection looks to Florence, Italy, the city where Roberto Cavalli was born and where he still lives and works, for inspiration from Renaissance paintings, colors and most of all decorations. Prints on fabrics recreate the appearance of the carbon sketching technique used by Old Masters for drawings, while adding strong colors of red, yellow and blue.
The collection ranges from tailored suits and outwear to sensual silhouettes of gowns. The sheath dresses with the simplest shapes are decorated and enriched by engineered prints to highlight a woman's body.
Fabrics range from precious brocade silk velvet to opaque jersey in a lightweight and fluid wool while precious alpaca jacquard, cashmere and mohair are used for coats and jackets.
This collection is available at the Roberto Cavalli boutique at The Shops at Crystals.
