Gucci, Roberto Cavalli headline Day 1 of Milan Fashion Week

DIVINE DECADENCE

Even while venturing back in time to the Belle Epoque era, Peter Dundas' latest collection for Roberto Cavalli remains rooted in the rock'n'roll '60s and '70s.

The languid looks were strong on glamour and workmanship, from the ephemeral sheer beaded evening dresses in pale shades to the colorful patchwork fur coats worthy of any rock star: art nouveau meets Janis Joplin.

"Decadence, superstition, mysticism, Gustav Klimt, Aubrey Beardsley things that give me a kick," Dundas said backstage, describing his inspirations.

He said the Roberto Cavalli woman for the season is "a little wild and instinctive."

The Cavalli animal print for next winter is tiger, in long skirts and short bomber jackets, while denim gets its due with a long trailing coat and flared embroidered jeans. Looks were finished with long scarves tied casually around the neck, makeup hastily done and hair loose and natural.

Notwithstanding the labor involved in his creations, Dundas says he would like to see his collections get into stores more quickly than the current system permits.

"I wish I could. I am working on it," Dundas.
