You come to expect the loudest prints from Cavalli and this collection didn’t disappoint. The show started with the brightest tribal maxi dresses with all lengths of sleeve, like technicolour dream coats. What followed was a complete departure, intricately embroidered cotton lace outfits then a metallic finale and some signature animal print. A real safari.
Women who love a serious silhouette and contemporary clean lines have been buying this label for years (the clothes don’t really date). The collection was a masterclass in collars, cuffs and skirt splits, and showcased some interesting upper body shapes (bulbs, flared and rouched). I particularly liked the double layered skirts and socks with sandals.
The prints were better than ever at Pucci, where the show started with stunning brightly coloured embellishment on brilliant white (cocktail dress, jumpsuit, fringed poncho). Ethereal prints bellowed behind the models as they swished, and were extremely effective paired with camel suede knee high boots. The tangerine orange was a stand out key shade before a finale of those famous prints – a tie-dye triumph.

With over eighty stunning looks which were quintessential D & G (sexy widow and matador) this was a tour de force. The heart embellishment/beading on lace dresses and denim was to die for. This was a masterclass in looking regal, with red florals on black, smoking jackets, polka dots. The finale saw a model army clad in white shirts and high waisted embroidered shorts, a show of power from the powerhouse of Italian fashion.
