Roberto Cavalli S/S 2010 / MFW / Day three

Roberto Cavalli invited his audience into a lush Tuscan garden for spring, and it was in full bloom. Against a backdrop of a wisteria-covered country villa, the designer swapped his signature fauna for flora this season, producing a subdued collection.

Floral motifs worked their way onto a feminine display of wispy prairie dresses and chiffon patchwork-apron numbers, which floated gracefully down the tiled runway, layered, a bit awkwardly at times, over masculine tailored pieces. Even suede jackets flourished with cutout leather petals, while rosebuds blossomed over the shoulders of fetching satin evening dresses. “It is a small part of my garden, the light rose and terra-cotta colors. It is a romantic place, warm, poetic, true,” Cavalli said before the show. But this being Cavalli, sexy obviously weaved its way into the mix. Printed trousers and blouses were ultratransparent and worn over boxer shorts, while roomy jumpsuits came embellished with metallic embroideries. Although, in the garden, beds were well tended and weeded, the layering of tailored clothing and riffs on androgyny seemed a little overgrown.
