The Cavalli girl—even her budget-minded sister who shops Just Cavalli
—is a lady of leisure, so for Resort, the designer was thinking travel, as the season originally intended. That meant little pack-and-go dresses, plenty of denim, and hotter-than-hot pants. (Of course, Cavalli keeps those in heavy rotation during the office season, too.) The news here is that the hard-rock look the label's known for has taken more of a boho turn this time around. Shapes were light and loose, with maxi skirts and dainty ruffles, while a tulip print mixed with a lavender print, often on the same garments.
There was, of course, an animal-print section, too. Here the rock reasserted itself a bit, with one-shoulder dresses, leggings, and a studded leather moto jacket. The print itself—which found its ultimate expression in a cropped, peplum-accented tuxedo—was a combination python/leopard. Never mind that such a chimerical beast could never exist in the wild. Where else would it survive, and thrive, but in the Cavalli menagerie?
