Mood board: Peter Dundas returned to his old fashion stomping grounds this season in his debut as the new chief creative director of Roberto Cavalli. The Norwegian designer took a surprisingly hard-core and unrelenting 1980s approach to this iconic Florentine house, swathing his models in skin baring pink and white cloud-washed denim, and mixing Lacroix-like silk taffeta ball skirts and bows with nightclub-esque, micro mini leather skirts and tops.

Best in show: The best looks were Dundas’ signature long sleeved band dresses that hugged the models assets but looked expensive and well made. Many of these came showered in swaths of micro link silver chains.

Finishing touches: Remember Pat Benatar? The cone shaped booties she wore got resurrected on the Cavalli runway in shades of pastel suede.
