Roberto Cavalli Spring 2016 | Milan Fashion Week

September 26, 2015

Marking his first collection as Roberto Cavalli’s creative director, Peter Dundas looked to the eighties for inspiration with the brand’s spring-summer 2016 collection. Acid wash denim, bold pastels and boxy jackets brought a retro attitude to the runway. It was certainly a change from the bohemian, rock and roll style Cavalli has become synonymous with. Still, as Dundas noted in the show notes, this was an homage to the house’s codes with an exploration of “big cat” prints, dreamy gowns and vibrant hues–all Cavalli staples. The final looks embraced bold ruffles with body-con silhouettes and lace-up details.
