Roberto Cavalli - Milan Fall 2007
(NEW YORK) A lizard king can, by rights, do anything—except, apparently, turn down the testosterone. From the first faded t-shirt to the final fur coat, Cavalli's Jim Morrison-inspired collection toyed with a flamboyant, yet aggressive masculinity that was at once magnetic and repugnant. Piling on sexy/sketchy unbuttoned, patterned shiny shirts and plenty of insouciantly skinny snakeskin pants with the abandon of an exploding rock star, it was a refreshingly brash strut in an otherwise polished season. Yet though the collection hit all the notes that made Morrison a style icon, it was more concerned with his attitude than mystique. So, did it break on through? Hey—it's only rock 'n' roll.|page|
