Camping alla Cavalli? Not quite, but Roberto did head into the woods for Pre-Fall, returning with berries, bark, snakeskin (of course), and even a squirrel or two. In some places the idea bubbled up literally, particularly with digital prints: A kaleidoscopic mash-up of orchids and snakes swirled down the sides of trousers and over blouses. Another grouping was devoted to a hyperrealistic pattern of blackberries and raspberries for an effect that looked like houndstooth from afar but up close was frankly mouthwatering, and every bit as nice on slinky midi dresses as on tops. Those literal prints were tempered by easy shapes (’70s-style blouses with bagged trousers) and some standout tailoring, including a fitted snakeskin-patterned jacket and a mustard leather blazer with ruffled trim and matching pants. New love was given to knitwear, too. Between that and pieces like a short topper in patchworked colored fur—which conjured up visions of leaves on some exceedingly glam forest floor—this was an offering that was comfier and plainly cooler than some of Just Cavalli’s recent outings.
