MFW SS17: Roberto Cavalli

I guess it’s Woodstock in Tangier this season (with this Moroccan cafe backdrop)! Oddly this works for Cavalli – the style is very Puss-n-Boots rules Bohemia, where it’s always Woodstock. With that being said, I don’t think it’s terribly innovative. There’s lots of stipes and Janis Joplin’s swag; fringe, ruffles, patterns, and flowy dresses galore. 
Throughout is interesting mix of prints – personally, I’m not feeling this generic Native American motif, it really feels random and unnecessary.  Skimming Vogue’s review, they anchor this to Peter Dundas’ “American” lineage…even though these nonspecific native textiles are distinctly non-American. These look like rips from southwestern native groups, and honestly I think my issue is that this collection just kind of grabbed at the idea and literally threw it on top, instead of delving deeper and incorporating something fully and independently into a design concept.
