Runway Report: Roberto Cavalli SS17

There was a stimulating display of responsiveness and absolutely zero restraint at Cavalli SS 2017 presentation.

Peter Dundas elected to bring everything back and at maximum volume – not only the brand’s signature prints like leopard and python, but patchwork, glitter, velvet, denim, fringe, embroidery and Chantilly lace–encrusted bohemian dresses.

It was definitely a loud and unapologetic collection, where the accent was less on real time purchase, and more on technical skill in design and production.  If you wanted it, you’d have to get on wait list.  It was almost as if Dundas was rebelling against the idea of immediate availability and hence countered it with beautiful, intricate pieces, which simply took time and manpower to create and hence get to consumers.

Many found the collection refreshing and the focus on sartorial perfection absolutely necessary in the age of fast fashion
