Just Cavalli F/W 2010/2011 / MFW Day-02

Roberto Cavalli’s black light setting augured an upcoming discotheque romp at Just Cavalli. Then came the opening notes of classical music, which struck a decidedly different chord. The runway result? A high-charged mash-up of rococo romanticism-meets-edgy rocker babe, as in the first look out — an electric blue skirt and tights paired with a ruffle blouse and fur coat. This was glitzy uptown posh, done Cavalli-style, with plenty of high-collared Victorian blouses, brocade pants and jackets to follow. He added punchy graphics to fluffy tutu-esque frocks and tossed a black lace pinafore over a cheetah-print dress in vivid red. And somehow in connecting the dots between prim and party, Cavalli landed on a schoolgirl motif, too, as seen in the kilt-skirts, worn over patterned leggings, which channeled Alicia Silverstone in “Clueless.” As for how the grungy patchwork sweaters fell into Cavalli’s thematic equation, who knows — but they were terrific.
