Florence born Roberto Cavalli opened his first boutique in St.Tropez in 1972 and his label quickly became the epitome of glam, sexy Italian party wear. He made a name for himself when he patented a new method of printing on leather from which he created patchworks of varying materials. The Cavalli look is provocative and bursting with colour, he often uses leather and animal print to evoke this flamboyant, decadent style. The Cavalli brand now produces menswear, womenswear and home decor; the label has even opened a Cavalli nightclub in Dubai.
Look to Cavalli this season for python jackets, lacing trousers and barely there dresses.
