For his first fall collection, Roberto Cavalli’s new successor Paul Surridge introduced new ways to celebrate the Italian brand’s deep- rooted aesthetics in creating vibrant prints and provocative yet very chic silhouettes.


This is the brand’s very first combined man and woman ready-to-wear show. The menswear collection was super-chic included a variation of leopard print pants and hooded jackets that added an athleisure touch to the whole look. The winner of show must be our all time favourite mono-colour hot red leather ensemble perfectly contrasted with black-patched shoulders.


Paul’s mission with this collection is to modernise men’s future wardrobe with essentials items like backpacks and leather shirts, heavy outwear and exaggerated oversized scarves.


For women there were a flawless mix of soft silhouettes and maximalist prints, which included a range of long slashed dresses, wrapped with handkerchief hems, a pop of gradient prints and gothic gowns for after dark. For Fall, he also featured fluid asymmetric dresses paired styled with cosy coats with fur accents, all coordinated with over-the-knee leather boots. Colour tones were somewhat nomadic- what we call a dreamy Cavalliscape into the distant lands.


Mr. Surridge went the extra mile to create a new level of extravagance. It was a parade full of attitude and modernity with timeless wearable pieces.
