Thank god Style.com offer close up detail pictures along with the standard runway shots, because I was about to write this collection off for being aesthetically dreary with ill looking models. Fortunately though, I saw the light (literally) in the detail shots, which show the true colours of the pieces, as opposed to the regular runway shots, which seem to wash out both the models and the clothes.
Anyway, enough complaining. Roberto Cavalli has played with the boho theme for a few seasons now and this time he’s has given us Pretty Pastel Vintage Boho babe. Lightly draped furs over the one shoulder of intricate fully beaded gowns and tassel detailing seemed to reference the 20’s and maybe 30’s but was not to be the main theme of this collection. Long and lacey, sheer and streamlined, casual and layered were the boho girls of the runway, dripping in copious amounts of beading to ensure their value was literally worn on their sleeve. A beautiful and red carpet ready collection, this was yet another signal of the dreamy floaty soft season we are entering for summer.
