An Ode to the Woman – Harking back to the roots of Roberto Cavalli, the story here is of man meeting nature – nature evoked through precious skins and intricate recreations of animal markings, specifically tiger and leopard, and man through craft and ornament. The fusion of these two is the definition of Cavalli.

The mood is of nighttime, a nocturnal menagerie of Cavalli animals, defining the look of the Roberto Cavalli woman. Big cat prints and embroideries combine with snakeskin, and peacock-feather designs are recreated on chiffons, and in leather and python across the back of Montgomery coats and tailored jackets. The dresses are canvasses for an exploration of technique.
