Roberto Cavalli Spring 2017 for lookbook friday

By Posted on 2 min read 770 views
















The new word in town certainly has to be maximalist. As we have seen in the last few Lookbook Fridays minimalism seems to be on a bit of a hiatus. A need for change, or perhaps an expression of rebellion in a tumultuous political landscape on the word stage, but designers are embracing a no holds bar frenzy of lavish details and leaning in to sumptuous beauty and decadent extravagance.

Though Roberto Cavalli never strayed too far from this corner stone of opulence, so it should be no surprise that Peter Dundas’s offering for Spring 2017 is an expression of all that is romantic and free spirited. From velvet and lace to fringe and fur, the emphasis is on texture. Add to this embroidered denim and satin, layered ruffles of broomstick skirts and dresses, embellished details and tapestry finishes and you have a tactile celebration of exquisite means.

The combined effort is one of lavish freedom, and resplendent pleasure

Hemlines are long, long and long with flowing maxis, flared high-waisted trousers, and bell bottom jeans, it’s all about the illusion of what is, or what could be. Prints also take center stage in this collection with boho florals intermixing with polkadots, stripes, and animal prints and co-mingling in a palette that spans the rainbow from sun flow yellows and tangerine to corals, to jewel toned purple, to fiery reds and the more neutral tones of black, cream and rust. The combined effort is one of lavish freedom, and resplendent pleasure. I mean, seriously who does’t need a mint green floral embroidered suit in their lives.

    I love this collection and this designer. While I find most head to toe Cavalli to be a bit much, so many of these pieces are so fabulous!
    Great post, I also love your up to date fashion look books!
