Roberto Cavalli - Milan Fall 2009
(MILAN) Harder--no, softer. Cavalli's Fall collection appealed to fashion rebels while giving them a chance to reveal just a bit of girlishness. This biker babe was black and navy, leather and chiffon, a la Thriller goes to prom. Several floor-grazing longsleeved gowns with silver beaded trim demand red carpet appearances--Blanchett, your Cavalli time is now---while a few draped silk cocktail dresses in lighter shades of grey will satisfy the Cavalli customer that demands such treats season after season. Consider your fall trends written in stone.
