Roberto Cavalli Spring/Summer 2012 Lookbook

Animal prints would have never been so charming let there not be Roberto Cavalli. And now the renowned Italian designer has launched the stunning Roberto Cavalli spring/summer 2012 lookbook, once again revitalizing the trend of prints in the new season. You can hardly find any single dull moment throughout the Roberto Cavalli spring/summer 2012 collection, a bold, intriguing, challenging and even a little overwhelming line, which is filled with bursts of vibrant shades, eye-catching prints and an easily distinguishable sophisticated ladylike allure. A real celebration of color, sexiness and joy makes the newest collection coming from the luxurious fashion house extremely memorable and unique, which one can recognize even at a very superficial glance.

Once again leopard prints are the main focus of the Cavalli spring 2012 collection, which come highlighted in several ways through the lookbook. From loud, eye-catching styles to more subtle options and everything in between, the Roberto Cavalli spring/summer 2012 lookbook represents a myriad ways of sporting animal prints in order to look refined and sophisticated without any single sign of vulgarism. Figure-hugging dresses, girly skirts, summery tops and jackets together with matching bold accessories can certainly bring an exuberant touch and a fashionable allure to your new season look.
Another characteristic feature of the new Roberto Cavalli collection is the use of eye-popping, daring shades, which not only capture loads of attention, but also make the designs simply mesmerizing. Unexpected sheer details, delicate fabrics like lace, textural contrasts and well-defined cut-outs are some of the techniques used for getting such a dazzling result.

Aside from leopard prints, florals and snake prints have also been used in this gorgeous lookbook. If snake prints are used the way to appear subtle, floral prints represent a whole other story. In a dominant color tone with slight variations or in wild combinations, these romantic prints come to look completely different from the traditional florals, and immediately catch the attention. This season forget about discretion and go for easily distinguishable wild prints to make a real sartorial statement.
The Roberto Cavalli spring 2012 lookbook also brings a line of evening dresses, which are, no wonder, a true symbol of high class and elegance. Unlike the casual attire options, these alluring dresses come toned down, still deserve equal attention. Bold tones, catchy prints and high splits are definitely not for the faint hearted, as they instantly become the center of everyone’s attention.

The accessories department of the lookbook is equally impressive, as it follows the same route as the attire options. Whether it’s about an elegant clutch or an oversized handbag, the bold tones, edgy prints and exotic texture undeniably dominate. When it comes to footwear, we can see mainly comfy sandals, while chunky necklaces and bracelets manage to complement the looks in the most ideal way.
One thing is sure about the Roberto Cavalli spring/summer 2012 lookbook: if so far you haven’t liked animal prints and have always shied away from them, you are sure to get addicted with them soon.
