Just Cavalli Womenswear S/S12

Roberto Cavalli focused on animal and floral prints, often in yellow, shown on chiffon shirts and cigarette trousers

This season, Just Cavalli confirmed the playful bohemian spirit its past collections have conveyed: think sheer, flowy layers, a certain taste for floral or animal print, resulting in silhouettes both free-spirited and voluptuous. The show kicked off with a bright, yet on-the-go look, composed of a yellow, transparent chiffon shirt, skinny jeans of an almost identical shade but with sparse organic motifs, a matching skinny silk scarf and accessorized with heeled beige suede sandals. This combination was followed by a similar, slightly more sexy one: more chiffon on top, but this time with a central split offering a bare belly and waxed, silver-blue cigarette pants. 

As always, a good number of dresses were on show, this time in leopard print and inspired by lingerie-wear; in a similar style, skirts with trails were worn with matching leggings. For cooler nights, the collection also offered jackets with A-line, cape-like backs; even oversized, pink fur jackets made an appearance. A couple of male models also marched down, in leather jackets, silver pants, and ankle-high trainers; the hats, necklaces and recurring black garments seemed to indicate a Latin take on Pete Doherty – and, true to the brand, matching leopard  print for him n’ her.
