Just Cavalli - Milan Fall 2009
(MILAN) Granted, it was only twenty looks, but ça suffit when it comes to Just Cavalli, a line fraught with so many accessories and other add-ons that the presentation format allows a greatly-appreciated closer look. In fact, editors had trouble negotiating the throng of well-wishers and general admirers crowded into Cavalli's second-floor showroom on Via Sentao. The look? Rocker, bien sûr, beginning with motorcross jackets, acid-wash blazers, and agressively-shredded denim. Add a shearling vest, a slouchy cap and a gold pointed-toe stiletto and you're guaranteed entry into the Cavalli club. Although there remains uncertaintly whether these clothes will, in fact, be produced, they should be-after all, Just Cavalli operates so many freestanding boutiques that anything less will result in a storming of the gates.
