Roberto Cavalli Junior F/W 2014
ANTIQUE CHINA PRE-COLLECTION
A mix of emotions. The antique China pre-collection explores flower themes through a fine use of hand-painted prints on silk, which enhance the attention to detail. Flowers designed on large blouses with drawstring waists or mini-dresses with maxi-pleated skirts and trapeze shapes are full of strong contrasts in black and white featuring multiple strokes of color in the shades of orange yellow, emerald green, peach pink and mauve.
The light of the prints sketches memorable outlines defining a solemn Winter. The most elegant theme in the collection is distinguished by the ease describing the iconic elements of the Maison, where inserts and milky white laces move like spider webs in the thin mist. Snowy gardens warmed by foliage and a thousand gold reflections, precious butterfly embroideries on balloon dresses, glittering micro jewels on denim, candid traces of lace and soft spotted ruffles emphasize the fluidity of the most vaporous shirts.
The perfect synthesis between the evocative power of color and floral shapes in motion: between playful zebras and tender giraffes, a greenhouse characterized by wild ferns, creepers and bouquets with thousands of types of blooms. Light dresses with clean lines and jersey t-shirts create a mix of contrasts, discoveries new meanings, where the grace and tenderness of swans reign supreme. The color palette ranges from the delicacy of pale pink to the intensity of coral and fuchsia, with unexpected accents of cyan and yellow. The vintage leather jackets are embellished with jewelled stones.
In a triumph of nature and royalty, the heritage of the heraldic logo 'RC' meets the most iconic Roberto Cavalli print: the jaguar print. Ton-sur-ton overlapping patterns and touches of antique pink give this collection an original soul and enchanting harmony. Applications of micro-logoed studs, puffed sleeves and embroidered white macrame contrast with the lineal façon dresses. Imagination is everything in the themes featuring roses with pink-party-style giraffes, and spotted swans taking flight.
Multilayers of amazing colors. Art Nouveau evokes the rare beauty of a distant memory, retracing classic influences and overtaking what they encounter. Imaginative applications on maxi blouses and placed prints on silk and chiffon dresses create optical pattern forming motifs such as 3D red hibiscus. Pullovers and wool dresses are embellished by collars and edgings and of chisel as crochet presents the eternal contrasts between empty/ full and light/ dark.
The spotted pattern is the novelty on the slopes. A set of outfits dedicated to skiing and featuring all-over animal prints. Among the garments are new concepts for tracksuits, hooded jackets and zip pockets, ski pants with maxi-suspenders, sweatshirts and turtleneck sweaters, but also ski gloves and children’s mittens.
OUTER SPACE BOY
The prints are the leitmotif of this collection with sidereal tones for the most modern and sporty winter activities for boys. The Roberto Cavalli Junior activewear prefers dark tones such as black-gray washes furrowed with silver touches, denim and night blue melange sweatshirts, highlighted by bright accents of yellow and purple. The college bomber cannot stand the cold of interstellar missions. The moon is there ... just a small step behind the ubiquitous araldic logo ' RC '.
With a shake of spotted tones in the matching and primary colors (blue , yellow, red, green) this theme challenges the harsh cold with a metropolitan street style. A balance of serial pop art, cartoon suggestions and digital identities is brought to life thanks to the colorful world of t -shirts, sweatpants, shirts and jeans to be matched with an orange padded jacket. The wireframed and digitally scanned prints and reinterpret and depict zebras, lions and tigers, integrating the spirit proudly.
From a gentle palette of colors, rich graphics with elegant designs and Nordic inspirations come to life. The functional models are typical of a metropolitan wardrobe. The neutral and melange tones, from t-shirts to sweaters, with touches of bordeaux and blue, broken by olive green inserts or petroleum green. Tailored constructions for blazers, accurate finishings where stitches and embroideries are applied lightly, while the logo and all the most valuable details are declined in shades of gold.
SUPERSKI JAGUAR KID
Even in the childrens collection, the ski theme becomes the star thanks to newly printed garments in pop shades of yellow and blue. Comfortable, very warm and rich in detail, they include suits and sweatshirts, jackets and pants, gloves and mittens. The innovative animal-print declined in macro versions portrays the unmistakable Roberto Cavalli style entirely designed and created for the snow: style and fun are guaranteed!
