Roberto Cavalli History
Born in Florence, Italy in 1940, Roberto Cavalli was surrounded by art and fashion thanks to his grandfather Giuseppe Rossi who was a well-known painter of the Macchiaioli movement and his seamstress mother.
Cavalli honed his creativity and love for patterns at the Florence Art Academy and while he was still a student, he created a series of flower prints on knit that made major Italian hosiery factories pay attention. After graduating and rather than becoming a painter, Cavalli took to textiles, creating his first Tuscan printing works in the seventies.
The early seventies saw Cavalli’s innovative approach skyrocket as he invented and patented a leather printing procedure which also led to creating patchworks of different materials. These techniques debuted in Paris and were immediately snapped up by Hermès and Pierre Cardin.
Luxury and Vibrance
After presenting his namesake collection at the Salon for Prêt-à-Porter in Paris at age 32, Cavalli then stole the show on the catwalk at Palazzo Pitti with this avant-garde collection showing off his luxurious and vibrant style. He then opened his first boutique in 1972 in Saint-Tropez. Cavalli recognised the potential of this small fishing village and envisioned it becoming a hot spot for fashion.
Roberto continued to revolutionise the world of fashion, including in 1993 when he completely changed the face of denim, using techniques for a ‘lived-in’ effect as well as adding opulent touches such as gold stitching. In 1994, he began opening boutiques all over the world including Saint Barth, Venice and the French Caribbean.
Cavalli is known as a firm favourite with the stars, from Sofia Loren to Sharon Stone. He also counts a range of productions in his back catalogue including the popular ‘Sex & the City’ TV series and Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s huge “On the Run II” tour.
The Cavalli brand is perhaps best known for its use of bold animal prints – using the delicate, seductive and captivating power of nature. Roberto’s designs have been worn all over the world and he remains a top contender in the fashion industry.
Roberto also has five children – two from his first wife whom he married in 1964 and three from his second wife, beauty queen Eva Duringer. The two met in 1977 when Cavalli was a judge at the Miss Universe pageant and they married in 1980.
