Roberto Cavalli FW 2011.12 Milan Menswear with Francisco Lachowski “Groovy Mood”
By Matthew Schneier | style.com
The seventies has exerted such a potent influence on women’s fashion these past few seasons that perhaps it was inevitable that it would make its presence known in men’s. It certainly did tonight at Roberto Cavalli (who, to give the man his due, has been in the fashion game before, during, and after the seventies). The theme and title of his show was Groovy Mood.
Want to feel groovy alla Cavalli? Slip on one of the slightly shimmery three-piece suits that were the collection’s major statement in coppery rust, camel, gray, and icy blue. The jackets were ultra-fitted, cut close to the shoulder, and paired with waistcoats like breastplates—”like armors,” Cavalli said approvingly before the show. The pants were slightly flared, and they were shown with silk shirts and accessorized to the hilt with foulards, necklaces, or feathers and pointy, Spanish-heeled boots.
