Roberto Cavalli SS24 Trunk Show @ The Starhill Kuala Lumpur

Roberto Cavalli presented a feminine, sassy and fun trunk show at The Starhill store in Kuala Lumpur recently. The evening featured the Resort 2024 collection with effortlessly cool vibe in the legendary 70’s Cavalli hippie style revisited through a contemporary filter for ready-to-wear staples designed to impeccably balance sexiness and bon ton elegance. Sicilian roots of the house’s Creative Director Fausto Puglisi meet Western references in a wardrobe of appealing items that immediately link to the brand’s DNA encompassed with an overall sense of summertime freshness was conveyed through the combination of delicate cottons and laces exquisitely matched on a range of black and white silhouettes, spanning from bell-bottom pants worn with cropped tops to chic dresses showing cuts exalting the body’s curves.

The Sicilian coral tradition is celebrated through the use of precious buttons enriching chic textured skirt suits, while a Cavalli archival pattern, depicting a lush Mediterranean garden where a snake crawls through lemon trees, pops up on jersey and Lycra maxi frocks, as well as on voluminous cotton satin flounce skirts and cotton drill trenches. The bold exuberance of these shapes is counterbalanced by the graphic essentially of knitted cotton and chenille styles with a fishnet-like look, while Cavalli’s signature artisanal craftsmanship steals the spotlight on intricate leather intarsia outerwear pieces and laced-up pants infused with a 70s’ rock ‘n’ roll vibe. Inspired by the opulent atmospheres of cult TV series “Wild Lotus”, a Hawaiian print showing a tropical jungle populated by a seductive leopard is printed on bias cut slip dresses, frilled mini skirts, as well as languid devoré dresses and robes coming in military green shades. While leopard chiné patterns reveal the wildest face of the brand, a range of sartorial motifs introduce tailoring precision into the collection.

The lineup’s plethora of prints and artisanal details also defines the footwear selection, where the Pettegole mules are offered in a wide range of variations, including an opulent cotton option embellished with a velvet maxi bow decorated with coral details. At the same time, paying tribute to the brand’s vast archives, metallic sun-shaped applications give a signature flamboyant and sexy look to towering stiletto sandals and summery flats. With its signature precious handle showing two tiger heads, the Roar bag, coming in colored leather or with crocodile prints, seduces with its fierce allure. At the same time, a new half moon shape, that revisits an archival style, is decorated with metallic fangs. A Mediterranean sensual elegance is injected into the men’s collection offering a multifaceted wardrobe for men that are not afraid to dare.

Impeccable wool and linen suits, rendered in a black and white palette, show boxy double-breasted pants matched with wide legged pants. Languid silk shirts and pajama-like pants are printed with the collection’s signature Lemon print, its flamboyant vibe balanced by essential linen knitted tops with a distressed look. Napa, suede and snakeskin-printed leather are crafted from bombers and slightly flared pants, while a Hawaiian landscape print adds a holiday vibe to the collection. Leather sandals with straps embellished with the RC Mirror Snake metallic buckle and Texan boots revisited with an urban touch complete the collection.
