(MILAN) ROBERTO CAVALLI
"I know that a lot of designers are doing minimalism these days," said Roberto Cavalli after his Spring 2011 show. "But I say, who needs minimalism when you could have great sex?" And sex is what he gave us for his 40th anniversary effort that played out like Woodstock 4.0 full of hot supers (like Natalia Vodianova and Laetitia Casta) that marched down the runway in bold animalier prints, fringes, daring chiffon gowns, and alligator jackets. From all that skin to bold python shoes, this showing was all about Cavalli's dreams and dames and a booming, optimistic, and yes, loud celebration of decades of success.
"La Femme Bleu" was the crucial theme of the Giorgio Armani's monotone spring effort, which was fueled by matte shades, crystals, and turban-like tuareg hats. As expected, Armani put out a strong offering of fitted jackets, short tunics, and flattering trousers. The elegant blouses and classic elongated skirts contrasted with the show's techno soundtrack, and the sparkling evening looks brought some variety and voom to Armani's reserved navy tones. None of the primary columns covered the knees, but they were still enticing and photogenic.
