Welcome to Roberto Cavalli's animal planet. In it, python is printed like cheetah, intense couture beading emulates alligator and furs are sheared and deconstructed to create easy-breezy t-shirts. As structured caps are covered entirely in feathers. The wild things weren't just left to the clothes either – or the rare birds that walked in the show, the newest gen of supers – as Cavalli walked around the tiger-patterned catwalk (constructed entirely of beautiful, fresh roses) with his pet Alsatian dog.

In a pitch black room, this was one seriously heavy hit of pure fashion
