Vintage Roberto Cavalli – Audi Fashion Festival 2010 Finale Video
In addition to showing select pieces from his fall/winter 2010 collection, Italian designer Roberto Cavalli, who’s celebrating his 40th anniversary, closed this year’s Audi Fashion Festival with vintage pieces from his archive.
I had chills running down my spine when that oversized white feather number came out. Want. NEED. Gagging for it!
At the Roberto Cavalli press conference yesterday afternoon, many journalists asked elementary questions like “where do you get
your inspiration?”, “have you been to/how does India or Indonesia
inspire you?” (asked by an Indian and an Indonesian journo) or “where
do you get inspiration for your prints?”
When it was my turn, I asked him this: how do you, as a designer, and how does “Roberto Cavalli” both as a brand and business, adapt in this digital & internet age that we live in?
Here’s his reply.
After I asked that question, the whole room went silent and his very handsome Communications Director Massimo (my god, he’s soo hot) translated it in Italian. From Roberto’s initial reaction, I somehow felt as if I’ve put him on a spot. I thought he was gonna snap and skip to the next question. But he played the game and played it well.
Colin McDowell then put me on the spot (see 1:20) by telling Roberto, “I have to say that you’re talking to one of the world’s most famous bloggers.” Yikes. How I wished for the ground to open up and swallow me alive.
One of the things I've learned over the years is that some of the best things to buy on sale are things that you can see yourself use over and over and over for years to come: jewelry, shoes or clothing "classics" (such as cashmere sweaters, shirts) etc.
I'm currently browsing the Vivre sale… and I'm loving these bits and baubles from Roberto Cavalli.
