With creative director Paul Surridge at the helm, Roberto Cavalli is a label reborn. Known for its intentionally-clashing animal patterns and casual approach to tailoring, the Surridge grants the brand a shot in the arm, taking a mature approach to its signature outré designs.

After delivering a contemporary Pre-Fall 2018 collection, Surridge informs Roberto Cavalli Spring/Summer 2019 with an airy, graceful ease, seen in the long, loose shorts and boxy, oversized layering pieces. A run of all-white garments is quickly undercut by oversized giraffe- and cheetah-print coats, succeeded by a tongue-in-cheek tiger-striped tank top and leather trousers. Despite the playful prints, the garments are all business; purposeful, comfortable cuts inform the range, ensuring that even the most off-kilter looks — including zebra-patterned denim and orange-on-green prints — retain conventional silhouettes. Handcrafted detailing, like blanket stitches and embroidered pockets, further humanizes the adventurous clothing, with macramé stitching and dangling belts adding three-dimensional visual interest to the heavily-patterned pieces.

Look for Roberto Cavalli’s website to offer the new collection next year.

Elsewhere at Pitti Uomo, Band of Outsiders presented its Spring/Summer 2019 collection.
