The Italian fashion desinger, Roberto Cavalli is and has been for the past years one of the best known names in the fashion industry. For the Fall/Winter 2010/2011 Menswear Collection he came out with a young and powerful but stylish with crazy prints collection.
As you all know, Roberto Cavalli is a perfectionist in every design that he creates. He is very careful with every detail on his runway looks and with the whole image in the same time, even if he likes to play sometimes with the extremes. So that’s why the Fall/Winter 2010/2011 Menswear Collection is a mix between amazing details and an overall messy look. He uses nature as inspiration for his collections and usually goes for powerful prints or vibrant materials that speak for themselves.
He started presenting his own collections every year since he was 30 years old, in fashion capitals like Paris or Milano. In Cavalli’s designs we have a large variety of clothing items from women’s wear to men’s wear, from accessories like watches to eyewear and perfumes or from underwear to beachwear.
In the Fall/Winter 2010/2011 Menswear Collection, you can definitely hear the scream of the youth that still hangs in Roberto Cavalli’s soul, even if he’s now 69 years old. He used as inspiration the punk rock attitude from the late ‘70s but in the same time the American prom inspired look or the high school uniform one.
The main trends that Cavalli reinvents in his Fall/Winter 2010/2011 Menswear Collection are: stripes and plaids used on pants, shirts or even blazers, leather pants, black biker leather jacket, tuxedo blazers, abstract and graphic printed pants, shiny shirts and velvet blazers.
The color splash given by powerful yellow, crazy red or electric blue and the messy hairstyle accentuate the dramatic high school punk rock inspired look.
The Fall/Winter 2010/2011 Menswear Collection started strong with amazing pieces inspired by today’s youth mixed with a vintage touch, and ended up safely with some black head-to-toe suit pieces to chill out the badass attitude.
In the end Roberto Cavalli’s collection was definitely a success and he will keep on surprising us in every season for a long time.
