Roberto Cavalli SS14

A riot of twenties hollywood glamour, in heavily embellished slips and pure white fur

TextSusie LauPhotographyPaolo Simi

Initial reaction:

Silver screen sirens from the 1920s collide with a Cavalli edge. 


All screen goddesses from the first half of the 20th century - Marlene Dietrich, Jean Harlow, Clara Bow - and old school cinematography. 

Stand out looks:

The heavily embroidered slip dresses, heaving with silver embellishment, contrasted with patchwork skin trousers. 


Aviator ‘Bombshell’ sunglasses, antique looking rectangular silver box clutches and intricate lace-up sandals dripping with silver chains. 

Most likely to:

Flap and swing along to Baz Luhrmann's mash-up Great Gatsby soundtrack.    

Least likely to:

Go on set in Pinewood Studios. 


Hollywood Studios in its heyday with mirrored backdrop and studio lights looming over the catwalk.   


Rousing cinematic scores including Abel Korzeniowski's Clock Tick from the Single Man soundtrack, rounded off by Marilyn Manson's cover of I Put a Spell on You.

Quote of the show:

"A place where dreams become reality"

Left you wanting:

To see how much those silver screen beaded and embroidered dresses weighed.
