FAR EAST KITSCH
Milan: Roberto Cavalli put a youthful spin on classical patterns for his F/W 13 Just Cavalli collection with a kitschy interpretation of baroque, Asian-themed motifs punctuated by cartoon tigers, flames and graphic leaf swirls. A riot of print mixing was key throughout, serving up long-pile striped fur alongside leopard spotted velvet burnouts or golden foulards paired with stained glass rose repeats. Essential, trend-driven items like cropped quilted moto jackets, slim tapered trousers and slouchy intarsia mohair tops were perfect for the Just Cavalli customer, especially in intense shades of cobalt, tangerine and crimson, their luxe factor dialed high via metallic embroidery, tassel trim and fantastical paillette dragons. With this fun, darkly glam outing punctuated by a hint of rich sportiness, the Junior-oriented Cavalli label continued its momentum for Fall.—Nina Stotler
