Spring-Summer 2018 Ready-to-Wear
December 14, 2017
In his first collection for Roberto Cavalli, creative director Paul Surridge takes inspiration from the life of the modern woman - magnetic, strong, powerful, a chameleon, constantly in motion.
Focusing on building a dynamic and athletic daywear wardrobe, the collection is characterised by a tension between opposites and mirroring the different multifaceted identity of a modern woman. Staying true to the codes of Cavalli, the new line is a celebration of women, highlighted by fine Italian craft and premium quality, while transforming the mood.
A modern experience of glamour in a daywear context, Cavalli’s innate knowledge of leather is underscored by the use of precious skins, translating them into an everyday wardrobe. Featuring stunning animal-inspired patterns of zebra and leopard in warm and natural hues drawn from the Tuscan landscape that underscores the house’s rich heritage and values, the SS18 line references to the past collections with an anti-nostalgic and forward-thinking mood.
