Roberto Cavalli Woman Spring Summer 2017 – After a year at Roberto Cavalli, Peter Dundas appears to be making his mark. His show traversed the globe, from the Navajo and Apache tribes of Native America to African prints and Scandinavian clogs. The complex mixture was surprisingly cohesive, each culture being woven beautifully into a singal tapestry.
There was a decidedly relaxed, hippy feel to the collection with studded leather jackets and skinny printed scarves for a touch of grunge. Each piece was a bohemian patchwork of prints in assorted fabrics; stripes upon floral upon leopard. However, whilst complex the collection still succeeded in a relaxed and effortless feel.
Standout pieces included a pair of orange velvet trousers and a fringed purple leather kaftan. The most beautiful however were perhaps the sheer maxi dresses covered in a collage of intricate embroidery. Suede, dream catchers and fringing showed a clear nod to Native American tribes alongside 70s flared trousers and an array of colourful kimonos.
In keeping with the natural carefree feel of the collection, hair was long and dishevelled with single plaits.
