It was a typical Roberto Cavalli-show, full of boho-chic in muddy colors, faded animalprints and thin layers.
Cavalli took last season’s hippie babe and pushed her forward a decade for a futuristic Eighties/baroque mash-up. There were some tribal elements (feathers, prints) and the models hungrily stalked the catwalk like they were recovering from an all-night rager. Also present were strong-shouldered jackets over pants and short drop-waist dresses.  They were over-embellished and rendered in a myriad of ways: spliced, sliced, fringed, feathered and beaded, in a palette of gold, bronze, blacks and blood red.  Cavalli explored a different sort of decadence by night with gowns skewing from gothic to ethereal.
