Set on a circular runway. A man made rain pours down into a central pool of water. A ring of fire appears. While a ray of white light pops into the smokey air. Models walking on a black wooden floor. The show notes waxed on and on about the Equestrian and Flapper dresses, as foundation pieces, but when you look at the setting, you know the collection was all about the Four Elements: Earth, Fire, Air and Water. Roberto Cavalli seemed to incorporate that inspiration, all throughout the collection. As phython and leopard prints, paired with a fur Shaw give off an African Safari like feel. The hot red and orange prints of fire, so perfectly woven into a black Flapper dress. While tribal prints line a cocktail dress.

As Dennis Basso reaches the 30th Anniversary of his label. He’s in none other than a celebratory mood, as he designs his Pre-Fall collection. Inspired by London in the 1960s, the collection takes a Vintage feel, but most definately with a Celebratory, modern twist. “Pre-fall can be uptown or it can be downtown,” the designer told WWD. “It’s all about the woman taking the pieces and making them her own.”
Getting to that point, a paisley printed top paired under a fur houndstoothShaw, gives off a “Ready to Party” vibe. While an LBD goes Edgy underneath a black crocodile skin jacket with a bedazzled collar, and thigh-high Equestrian boots underneath. And a Sparkled evening gown gets transformed into daywear, when worn underneath a fur top with black thigh-high Equestrian boots, and finished off with a Chocolate Crocodile skin handbag and black gloves. I’m just left extremely in love with the collection as a whole.
