Roberto Cavalli Fall 2013 Runway Review

Roberto Cavalli took his love for opulence and frill and channeled it into a darker direction this season for a collection that was on-brand while being surprisingly wearable. The details in the collection were astounding: elaborate studwork, chain covered shifts, multicolored furs, mixed textured separates, and while not every look would translate into real life the way it was presented on the runway, nearly every piece was wearable when taken on its own.

Much of what made this season work was that, despite the bodycon fits and embellishments, cuts were kept on the conservative side (for Cavalli standards). The designer eschewed plunging necklines and thigh-high slits for angled shoulders, long sleeves and a variety of tuxedo looks.
