Just Cavalli - Milan Fall 2008
(MILAN) Roll Call: Cindi Leive, Stefano Tonchi, Hope Greenberg, Sasha Iglehart, Michael Carl, Suzy Menkes, and scores of Italian starlets
Chic Report: Just Cavalli's Fall 2008 collection was clearly a tribute to the rich, jet-setting '70s siren (think Bianca and Diana, all floppy hats and attitude). There were tons of coy ruffles, plunging necklines, fur vests, and, of course, Cavalli's usual parade of vampy animal prints found on the witty, graphic tights, the flowy dresses, and tiny minis. But we fell in love with the parade of high-waisted pants, shown in denim, chic plaid, and peach suede. "I was starting to see young people gravitate towards the '70s and '80s," explained Cavalli, après show. "Fashion then was so strong; I wanted to bring back that excitement and adventure!"
