>> We heard what Marc Jacobs had to say earlier today, and now it's Roberto Cavalli's turn. For a man who first rose to popularity back in the '60s with his hippiefied patchwork jeans, Cavalli still has some strong stylistic opinions to air out . . .
On vulgar dressing: "There is a real vulgarity in the way women dress at the moment. They show off too much and try too hard. They don't understand where the line is between sexy and vulgar. I know where that line is." [Ed: Gotta love the irony . . . ]
On undesirables wearing his clothes: "It happens a lot with women of a certain nationality - I'm sure you can imagine which - and you just want to say 'Give it back!'? . . . The English - oh my God. I shouldn't say this because I live part of the time in London, but they are on a par with the Swiss stylistically."
On how much he loves Kate Moss' Topshop line: "Kate Moss's collection was badly made, stupid and bland; you see things like that everywhere. You can't just buy things for the label - it's ridiculous."
That last comment is especially weird, considering that Kate has been his go-to campaign girl for a few seasons now (including Fall 2008).
