Cavalierly Cavalli

It has always been clear that Roberto Cavalli loves women even if his vision of the feminine is a bit more showy than most, and while his signature animal prints may not have been out in force on his Spring 2009 catwalk other evidence of his love for flashy abounded. It just wasn't quite the flash we expected with the seductive white dresses that went for a country ease over his usual European nightclub urbanity. Even his most exotic choices, like an enveloping jungle floral, still felt a bit more pastoral than his work in the past.

In this sense we must call Cavalli a bit cavalier not only to the times but to his own history and to the women he dresses. And yet you can take that moniker in two ways. In some sense he is showing a kind of disregard to the pain his customers will surely be in come fall and yet he is still gallantly as ever seeking to dress women of a certain social stature. Nonplussing all in all.
