Roberto Cavalli Man S/S 2013
The rock scented tailoring of the new Roberto Cavalli Spring/Summer 2013 collection, shaped by Daniele Cavalli, takes you on a journey far away from Milan and into a fantasy land more reminiscent of Avatar’s planet Pandora. The impeccable tailored elegance in this collection discovers an electrical and mysterious sophistication in bright and nocturnal hues of blues.
In his continuous quest, Roberto Cavalli chose the butterfly as a symbol of “transformation”. Metaphor of change, ideal of beauty, lightness, but also of solidity, elegance and classicism. The sensual explosion of nature’s glamour emancipates the butterfly as more than just an ordinary symbol of transformation. It envelops, like a perfume, with a geometric silhouette, that transforms sound into music, like nature itself.
"The immense secrets of the Cosmos are enclosed within the smallest wonders of Nature. Micro worlds, invisible to our eyes, conceal beauty, perfection and love".
This collection represents a man whose joie de vivre (joy of living) radiates at the same time an eccentric and classic masculinity. This is the philosophy with which the new Roberto Cavalli Men collection was conceived, and in my opinion, executed to perfection.
PS: This is one of the best runway videos I have ever seen.
