Roberto Cavalli's FW19 Runway Show Is a Masterful Play on Color

The Italian brand presents a vibrant collection that beats the winter blues.

While garments for cold weather tend to come in somber tones, Roberto Cavalli has delivered a much-needed color-packed Fall/Winter 2019 collection at Milan Fashion Week.

The homegrown fashion house, which is currently led by Creative Director Paul Surridge (formerly a creative consultant of Acne Studios), doesn’t shy away from the use of bold patterns and eye-catching hues. With a diverse cast of models — including show opener Selena Forrest, Grace Elizabeth, Bella HadidAdesuwa Aighewi, Ming Xi, Chu Wong and Yasmin Wijnaldum – the catwalk featured a contemporary take on the tiger prints that have become synonymous with Roberto Cavalli over the years.


The animal print is reinterpreted with a blend of vibrant colors that work so harmoniously on a double breasted coat, flowy dresses, head-turning tops and even a furry crossbody bag. Each look is completed with thigh-high, black leather boots or mules, as well as matching gold and silver necklaces, earrings and bracelets that induce accessory envy. In a later part of the show, the pattern reappears on a chic, off-shoulder jumpsuit, except this time in a mix of more muted hues.

Magenta, icy blue snakeskin, black leather, snowy cream whites and sparkly golds that exude nighttime elegance are other main motifs that run across the co-ed show.


Before the FW19 show began, we headed backstage to check out the hair and makeup prep courtesy of Dyson. To highlight the statement-making silhouettes, the makeup looks were kept fairly minimal, with chiseled cheekbones and gently defined eyes as the main focus. Female and male models alike were given the slicked-back hair treatment with the use of the hairstylist-favorite Supersonic hair dryer. To add some interest to the hairstyles, models were given dramatic side parts.

Take a look at the behind-the-scenes action above. For more from Milan Fashion Week, read our reviews on Bottega Veneta as well as Fendi’s FW19 runway shows.
