Milan: There was a retro-futuristic feel to Roberto Cavalli’s, Just Cavalli collection. The silhouettes – reminiscent of the sixties and seventies – had a pure and functional design; slim A-line mini-dresses were zipped up to the collar in a Bauhaus mash up of print and textures whilst cropped kick flare trousers felt modern with a throwback palette of mustard brown and maroon. Matching sets felt contemporary yet referenced bygone eras, in geometric print repeats – trimmed with wispy feathers. Cavalli topped the retro references with his own lavish handwriting; super fluffy coats in dyed shearling and fur, metallic and lace, bomber jackets in ostrich feathers with miniskirts to match, a bohemian reference thrown in with a full length tiered gown. A dressing up box dreams are made of for the Cavalli girl. – Anna Ross
