Just Cavalli AW14

An acid trip through the seventies in thigh high suede boots, warped prints and fringing

TextEmma WymanPhotographyPaolo Musa

Initial reaction:

Bauhaus gone disco. A geometric set lit up by pink and blue lights framed a collection of high-octane prints, fur and lots of suede.

Seventies seduction:

Thick brushstrokes of burnt orange in prints and forest green suede boots referenced the rich murky colours of the seventies. Fringing whipped around the legs of models in super sexy thigh high suede boots from the decadent side of the era, while muted tapestry jackets were its bohemian side.

How they wore it:

With Willy Wonka sunglasses, bright fur satchels and mega fringing – like a pair of liquid gold leather trousers with a thick mohican of fringing at the seams.

Prints please:

A Roman statue photo print warped by kaleidoscope acid colour.

Unexpected details:

Gold oversized rivets on jackets and coats, and feathered bird and gold phoenix motifs.
