The Cavalli way of dressing transcended almost into a way of being. From the Hollywood stars to the customers who bought his clothes in the shops, the Roberto Cavalli style was and still is instantly recognisable.
The style, which is slightly dramatic and theatrical whilst immensely flattering of the female form, consistently utilises the latest technologies to create patterns and a palette of vibrant colours, which are always being renewed. In a sharp series of oppositions a particular harmony is formed as an inter-play of varying excesses takes place, opposing one to another as extremes balance out each other.
Cavalli is also able to spot talent and style in others and has built rewarding relationships with some of modern society's most avidly followed, worldwide stars, from Lenny Kravitz and Britney Spears to Alicia Keyes, Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncè Knowles – all whom frequently wear Roberto Cavalli and are true testament to his enduring and burgeoning success.
