Nobody does Prints like Cavalli

Roberto Cavalli fringed gownI remember trying on a long, sweeping Roberto Cavalli creation in Venice, parading in front of the mirror, admiring the interesting patched effect of the fabric, which combined a myriad of animal and floral prints. It was a rustic and sensual dress with autumn shading, cut from a thin, luxurious fabric which almost felt like a second skin.
If I had to have seen that dress or any of Cavalli’s creation’s on the small screen worn by a runway model, I would not have realised the intricate detail that went into the making of such an extraordinary garment, but wearing this dress, feeling the fabric on my skin and seeing the printed work for which Cavalli is famous for, makes one understand why Roberto Cavalli has enjoyed a career in exclusive fashion spanning four decades giving rise to the brands: Class Roberto Cavalli, Just Cavalli, Roberto Cavalli Angels and Roberto Cavalli Devils.
As a student at the Art Institute in Florence, Roberto Cavalli concentrated on textile print, where he made a series of flower prints on knit that caught the attention of major Italian hosiery factories. In the 1970s, Cavalli invented and patented a revolutionary printing procedure on leather and he started creating patchworks of different materials.
Cavalli’s love of prints continue to distinguish his collections as he combines leopard spots with snake skin prints and bold florals. This breathtakingly beautiful fringed Roberto Cavalli gown epitomises his signature style.
