Accessories_Trends_SS2017

Nothing has changed since last winter… more is more is still the motto, this is what the S/S 2017 season is all about! With fashion in a maximalist mood, accessories have kept their center stage. On the runways, kitten heels are back, earrings were bigger than ever, and one bag is definitely not enough. New? The marriage of socks and boots. The forecast: Get ready for your another sumptuous season!

Met Gala 2015

MET_GALA_2015_Cover

The Met Gala is an annual fundraising event for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s Costume Institute in New York City and marks the grand opening of its annual fashion exhibit. Celebrating this year’s theme “China, Through The Looking Glass”, it seems to be one of the most challenging yet. See below who honored China’s heritage and its present culture on the red carpet best.

This year’s award to best dressed of the night goes to:

Peter Dundas Returns to Roberto Cavalli

113844743JM204_This_Must_Be

After weeks of rumours, Roberto Cavalli has announced the appointment of Peter Dundas as Creative Director of the group. After 7 years at Pucci, the probably best looking designer has returned to the Florentine House where he worked side by side with Eva and Roberto Cavalli from 2002 to 2005.

This is a homecoming for me. It is an honor for me to continue to evolve the wonderful world of Roberto Cavalli and I am very excited by the possibilities and potential of this unique brand. I cannot wait to get started“, said Dundas.

The choice of Peter Dundas was made with the desire to evolve a style that combines glamour, tradition and innovation, recognized worldwide as the signature of Cavalli since the birth of the house”, commented Roberto and Eva Cavalli.

Peter-Dundas-Roberto-Cavalli-GETTY

The debut collection of the Norwegian fashion designer – who also enjoys a special relationship with the world of celebrities, another of Cavalli’s distinctive features – are set to be seen on the Milan catwalks in September. Peter Dundas will be directly responsible for the creative direction for the RTW Women’s, Men’s, and Accessories collections, as well as all the licenses. He will also be directly involved in the marketing and communication strategies of the brand – a portfolio of roles that will enable a repositioning of the house established by Roberto Cavalli in the early 1970’s.

One thing is certain: Dundas’ spirit of sexy-cool style makes him the ideal fit for Cavalli.

Nicki Minaj Stars in Roberto Cavalli’s Ad

81a1fede-ec2e-43ec-ba02-0075c87f31de

Famous for her provocations and rebellious flare, just like Roberto Cavalli, Nicki Minaj has a nonconformist spirit which she uses to inspire and amaze her audience. It is no coincidence that one of the most successful singles of the singer is titled «Anaconda», and the snake is one of the iconic symbols of Cavalli.

Snake necklace iconby Roberto Cavalli

I chose Nicki Minaj because she embodies the exuberant and modern femininity of the Cavalli woman. In recent years we have become accustomed to women castigated in clothes that hide their body shapes. With this campaign, I wanted to send a strong countertrend message. I wanted a sensual woman who is aware of her body, who is not afraid to show her curves, rather she make them as a strength“, states Roberto Cavalli.

The campaign was shot in Los Angeles by photographer Francesco Carrozzini. Personally speaking, this is what I would call a perfect match.
