Produced by the Roberto Cavalli House studio, the Fall/Winter 2017-18 collection uses the main codes of the Florentine label. The Roberto Cavalli woman is extroverted and sexy, curling up in long dresses with rich ornaments, available in an incredibly minimalist palette: black or off-white. Handbags are simple and minimalist: smooth leather flaps on suede body and snake clasps for a touch of bling. The right balance. Discover Roberto Cavalli bags and Roberto Cavalli jewelry available on the MONNIER Frères website.
At the beginning of the 1970s, Roberto Cavalli became known to the public when he invented a new way of printing on leather. His printed leather patchworks were immediately purchased by Hermes and Pierre Cardin. He then created his first printed denim line, inlaid with leather and brocade. At the age of 30, he presented his first collection, which received a warm welcome. His leitmotif? Make women sexy. In 1994, the brand innovated again by offering the first sand-washed denim jeans, a technique that would soon become widespread. Four years later, the fashion designer expanded his business again launching the Just Cavalli line. Currently the Florentine label also distributes men and children's clothing, as well as interior decoration items and sweets. The fashion designer also launched a line of cafes and clubs around the world.
