Roberto Cavalli: AW16 Menswear
A real man’s real wardrobe. That was the inspiration for the debut menswear collection of Peter Dundas at Roberto Cavalli. It was pretty much his menswear debut full-stop – there was one excursion at Pucci, but this was his chance to really let rip. And he did – because the real mens’ wardrobes he was thinking of belonged to Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Jimmy Page, George Harrison, Gram Parsons and Serge Gainsbourg. Not exactly simple, and certainly no shrinking violets. This was a lush, opulent collection heaving with embellishment, patterned silks and fur coats. There were a few women in the show, in Cavalli frocks from the Pre-Fall collection; but Peter’s peacocks gave them a decided run for their money. Rich. That’s the word for this show.
