Roberto Cavalli presented a spring summer 13 wardrobe that beautifully exemplified the craftsmanship, attention to detail and exotic, leafy motifs that have become a trademark of the fashion house. Icy white blended into cotton candy pink, nude, neon green and yellow across dresses which hung in sexy drop waists and lace cut-out overlays. Leggings were the stuff of punk era rebellion, slashed from hip to ankle in shades of white, black and nude leather. Attention was drawn to shoulders encrusted with jewels, while dress straps were slinky, sexy, delicate and the sassy side of pretty. Textures came in snakeskin, leopard print and embroidered lace and wrists were bedecked with chunky bauble gold and tinsel silver, a hue that was echoed on the clasps of ruched leather clutches. British popstrel, Leona Lewis, took her place on the FROW alongside Liz Hurley and cricketeer beau, Shane Warne, as Cavalli’s gamine pixies wafted down the runway.
