The Florentine Renaissance was ground zero for Roberto Cavalli this season.
For pre-fall, Cavalli has discovered the virtue of covering up. Long-sleeved dresses outnumbered sleeveless ones, and smokings, with shirts buttoned all the way up to the neck were super-sharp. Fur came in real and faux varieties. In the former category, a patchwork fox had serious Glamazon factor. In the latter, a black-and-white skunk print was surprisingly appealing on a matching trench and flared trousers.
