Italian fashion house ROBERTO CAVALLI presented the Spring Summer 2023 Womenswear Collectio, with a show held on September 21st, during the ongoing Milano Fashion Week. For this season, designer Fausto Puglisi presented a collection with glitzy whiffs of Hollywood glam from the Age d’or of cinema and a baroque spirit that calls for both excess and reduction. The collection features a mix of sculptural couture shapes stripped down to the essence, body conscious femininity, and an unabashed urge for decoration. Highlighting the collection are pineapple, palms and grapes motifs.

What if Tony Duquette was called by Alfred Hitchcock to decorate the interiors of a film noir set in Los Angeles, while Charles James and Adrian worked on the costumes relying on Fulco di Verdura to add the finishing, glittering touches to the heroine’s extra-glamorous looks? What if all of this happened in a fashion fantasy? Everything is possible in the Roberto Cavalli world, as long as boundaries are surpassed and the opulence of invention rules. – from Roberto Cavalli

Playing with opposites sets the tone: demure dresses and revealing second skins; jupons and short dresses; canvas and moirè; neutral tones and bursts of cosmetic, powdery colors. Tops bloom in sculpted flounces and peplums; black cuts graphic lines while giddy bagatelle scenes are printed all over coats and skirts. Grapes, palms and pineapples punctuate necklines or turn into whole bejeweled dresses. A sense of properness meets the taste of provocation, within a frame of elegance that is, indeed, classic and composed in spirit. – from Roberto Cavalli
