A breathtakingly beautiful collection from Roberto Cavalli and one with a level of  sophistication and paired back glamour that isn't usually associated with the house. 

More commonly known for its exuberantly European aesthetic, here Cavalli's in-house team showed floor-length embellished gowns or trousers. Often paired with bustiers, the clothes were adorned with crystals and Ostrich feathers that gave the collection more of a couture than a ready-to-wear feel. The silhouette was narrow and most looks were belted to accentuate the waist. Short fur jackets added texture and glamour. There was the expected use of animal print found either subtly as in the printed chiffon of the gowns, or the in-your-face expressionism of the short fur coats. In addition to the floor-grazing lengths of the gowns and tailored trousers, there were a few shorter pieces made to resemble animal skin. Despite not having a creative director at the moment with the departure of Peter Dundas, the collection was still covetable.
