Just Cavalli Womenswear A/W12

The codes of a killer wardrobe

Fashion Show

Just Cavalli know the codes of a killer wardrobe: leopard, leather, fur, sequins, lurex, patent shine and op-art prints. As well as glitter-encrusted boots – for men. During the past couple of seasons, the younger Cavalli line has repositioned itself away from a 'jeans' philosophy. That's good news because somehow that mindset feels anachronistically 90s. Design languages are a lot closer today. As Dolce & Gabbana would agree, incorporating D&G into their eponymous brand.

The contrasts between Roberto and Just Cavalli? Rebellion and a sense of the impulsive. Whilst Cavalli senior is about the world of total lifestyle, Cavalli younger is about a taste for statement in the context of eclectic living. It's about a more eclectic styling approach too – whilst slick on the catwalk, the allure is in the ability to layer these clothes together, with a throw-it-on dynamism. Clothes that appeal to their wearer's creativity, in other words, building blocks for the imagination.
