MILAN - From Liz Hurley to Leona Lewis, there was no shortage of star wattage in the front row of Roberto Cavalli spring/summer 2013. The real stars however were the 43 looks of the Italian designer's new collection which was a consistent and eclectic mix of the classic Cavalli strongsuits. Dresses that diverged into three separate panel strips, jeans that sported an infinite series of horizontal strips along each leg, macrame bodysuits, leather boleros and the list goes on and on.



What began with an Eighties mix of white leather and lace progressed into long, glowing numbers in an ultra feminine flesh-tone. One of these peachy ensembles gave a nod to Indian dress with a macrame tunic worn atop skinny sliced leather tights. yes the occasional leopard and bohemian print worked its way into the equation on a silk blouse or pair of trousers, but there's was considerably more solid black and white than there was any other hue or pattern. The show opened and closed on white, but paid homage to biker chick flair with tasseled black jackets and form-fitting plunging V-neck gowns. Faultlessly sensual.
