Spring/Summer ’17 Collection at a Glance
On the label’s Middle East-themed catwalk, Roberto Cavalli toyed with contrasts. Creative director Peter Dundas combined high-end fabrics with jeans. He wildly mixed eras, regions and inspirations for the newly created #CavalliTribe.
Patchwork, long flowing dresses, flares and platforms: Dundas is a hippy and the delight he takes in experimenting with patterns and colours is overwhelming. The designer nods to his Scandinavian roots with this collection for the Italian label in the form of wooden platform shoes, and to his mother’s American roots with blue-and-white striped denim.
Be that as it may, Dundas and the label parted ways in autumn. So this is the last Dundas collection for Roberto Cavalli. The fashion world is still waiting with bated breath for the announcement of his successor.
Sheer silk scarves with feather ends, sometimes thrown around the neck and sometimes tied with a loose, low-hanging knot.
Chino-esque trousers with oversized pockets apparently added as an afterthought and romantically playful embroideries.
