Kritiqued: Roberto Cavalli F/W 2012

Each season I never wanna miss the Roberto Cavalli collection, the brand is known for their chic, sexy, elegant and glamorous animal print dresses. Playing with textures,prints and fabrics, each collection never fails to impress fashion enthusiasts all over the fashion universe. Their show is usually magical that will trigger your senses and makes you think that you are in another world, a world Mr. Cavalli himself creates. I remember the jungle-like show they created for S/S 2011, with big leaves as background, the models gracing the runway felt like pixies and magical creatures in sexy layers. Spectacular indeed.

This year for fall, they did a more playful and fashion forward version of their famed design aesthetic. One of the best collection Cavalli has ever had by far, exceeding their own milestones and setting a new standard for themselves . Opened by Magda Laguinge, in a fur bubble skirt topped by an embellished shirt that almost felt like some jewel toned snakeskin, the show's feel was so outlandish with models gracing the tiger-patterned floral runway and mixed animal prints and patterns visible in the intricate details of each piece put together perfectly to create a statement. Texture is the key trend of this collection, mixing prints with leather, mousseline, sequins and rhinestone embellishments. Also, some breathtaking techniques were seen on the collection like layers of tiers and ruffles, bubble skirts made up of fur that was pieced together like feathers and intricate and dense beading that depicts almost a new kind of reptile skin. The show was closed by Naomi Campbell nonetheless who looked stunning as ever and concluded another spectacular show from Cavalli.

From the moment I landed an eye to the Cavalli collection, I can definitely say this will be a big hit next season. Another must-have collection for fashionistas out there. Here are some pieces from the Cavalli F/W 2012 collection. Enjoy
