Roberto Cavalli Fall 2012 Runway Review

What a coup! Roberto Cavalli got 41-year-old supermodel Naomi Campbell to close out his show in a backless plum beaded dress creating quite the buzz in the process. The one downside is that it has somewhat overshadowed his solid outing this season.

Less rock and more bohemian than in seasons past, the bulk of the collection consisted of maxi dresses and skirts and structured mini dresses all, for the most part, done in the designer’s signature animal prints. Animal prints even transferred onto the accessories with leopard print booties and animal skin-accented sunglasses. Standouts, however, were the sharply tailored monochrome blazers, the dark loosely fitted trousers, and for those that dare — fur miniskirts.
