Roberto Cavalli

Roberto Cavalli was born in Florence in 1940 into a family of great artists. His maternal grandfather was Giuseppe Rossi, illustrious Florentine impressionist painter with works on display at the Uffizi Gallery. Following family tradition, Roberto attended the famous Florence Art Academy acquiring key training and valuable input in the terms of colour and design. He set out on his way in the world of art in the 1960s, the decade that marked a turning point in fashion. In virtue of his whimsical temperament, he succeeded in combining what he had learned at the Academy with the sociocultural evolution of the times, the new thrusts in music and style, to come up to something new on his own. He took leather - up till then used exclusively for sporty jackets - and turned it into an ultrasoft, supple, sophisticated material fine for all occasions. Sexy rock 'n' roll fashion has been reborn in these Italian hands.
