Just Cavalli RTW Fall 2014

The collection paid homage to the cultural heyday of Florence, the designer's hometown.

Just Cavalli RTW Fall 2014

The focus of Just Cavalli’s fall collection was “the inestimable value of the Florentine Renaissance’s artistic patrimony through the lens of Robert Cavalli’s contemporary creative vision.” That’s a direct quote from the press notes, and there was still more. Believe it or not, the literature actually shed some light on what was happening on the runway, which was something of a maximalist variety show.

Let’s start with the fringe, which appeared as an accessory at first, on the giant green fur bag shown with the opening look. Then it went on to trim the cuffs of a punky, multicolored fur coat and the legs of shiny gold jeans. Paneled strips of fabric dangling off a dress and the long-haired furs were also in the fringe family.

Abundant color came as prints that collaged images of statues with Renaissance architecture and art on multilayered silhouettes, such as a cutaway jacket over a bubble dress and tunics over skinny pants.

In further homage to the cultural heyday of Florence, Cavalli’s hometown, he included a range of tapestrylike floral brocades on ornate, rocker-ish looks. The collection was titled “Renaissance Rock,” and the wild and wacky outfits would fit in at a rave.
