With Peter Dundas’ departure and Roberto’s retirement, the Roberto Cavalli label is without creative director at the moment. And in the leadership vacuum, the Fall 17 RTW collection was lead by a ghost team. One which apparently in several ways decided to ignore the staple trappings of what makes Cavalli identifiable as Cavalli.

But was it bad? Oh no. It was lavish. Any of Cavalli‘s favorite concepts like 70’s boho vintage were deconstructed and elevated, like the animal print dresses in cutout leather over sheer fabric. Or his love of lace, muted, layered, and anything but everyday in its design, applied to a cropped jacket with just a touch of peplum and embellished with braided and twisted cord trimmings. Belted fit and flare gowns were trimmed with strips of ostrich feathers, python leather, leopard printed chiffon, and sequins.

This doesn’t really read too much like the Cavalli I’m used to seeing, but I’m definitely not complaining.
