’43 paintings ... my creations to celebrate feminine sensuality.' (Roberto Cavalli)
The Roberto Cavalli`s Spring/Summer 2013 collection is inspired by the poetic decorations of the Art Nouveau period.
Nature and its elements become graphic symbols that Roberto Cavalli transforms into prints which frame the body.
The prints are designed entirely by hand and are punctuated with lace details, furrowed by high slits, and enriched by leather cut-outs.
The collection`s colors range from total white to total black, passing through blush, lime and apricot.
Precious metallic and glass embroideries dissolve at the bottom of the dresses, and alternate with lace that is cut and reconstructed, or leather that is sewed, incised, and decorated with appliqués.
The dresses in silk knit, lie close to the body and are illuminated by crystal embroidery.
