Roberto Cavalli

My muse has always been the sexy, glamorous, sophisticated woman who exudes confidence. If anything, the Cavalli woman has become more free-spirited recently. She is still sexy but has more of a bohemian element to her.Roberto Cavalli

It’s hard to say which came first: Roberto Cavalli or the ultrasexy, jet-set, glamorously lavish, haute-Euro luxury lifestyle that the Italian designer’s clothes embody. “What is too much?” asks Cavalli, whose house turns 40 this year. “There is no such thing!”

“We have been able to constantly reinterpret and reinvent the collection in innovative and creative ways. There is an element of constant change in fashion that perfectly fits my ebullient personality. For me, fashion means creativity, joy, fun . . . and seduction, of course.”Roberto Cavalli
