Roberto Cavalli, Spring/Summer '09 (scroll down to read the review)
Once again Cavalli showed his sweeter side, opening his show with pretty and flirty looks in baby pink and blue decorated like Wedgewood plates. There followed floaty tea dresses in pleated georgette or silk painted with botanical prints, all under a backdrop of a formal garden in some villa or palazzo.
Delicate broderie anglaise, lace and even crochet appeared, and although it was girly it still had that Cavalli sexiness and rocknroll sensibility. Little House on the Prairie meets Marie Antoinette with a little Stevie Nicks thrown in for good measure.
