The Seventies by Roberto Cavalli

Roberto Cavalli Donna Summer 2011 showed a kind of über-Cavalli, it definetly connected with spring's major driving force - the seventies. But not the color-blocked, longer, looser, keep-it-clean decade. Specifically, it was the hipster-fleared-wearing, shark tooth and bead-strung fringe-purse-carrying, poker-straight hair variety idea of hippiedom.

Basically, the look Cavalli worked went two ways. On one hand, there was a multitude of sheer, floor-trailing hem dresses - there wasn't a single short variation in everything from delicate knit crochet to a crocodile-scale-effect dévoré silk chiffon, many of them slipped under shrunken, skinny-sleeved jackets patched out of crocodile, leather, and ostrich. On the other, there were tops with laced seaming atop low-slung trousers that ran along the curves of the leg till they kicked out over the ankles.

Both of these looks were very Cher-in-the-dating-Gregg-Allman-era, complete with soft, squashy shoulder bags swinging with so many she-strung tassels that it was often difficult to separate which were on the bags and which were on the clothes.
