"Today’s first look was a spray on, plunging bodystocking in a colourful collage of tartan, floral and leopard print. From there, things just got shorter, tighter and, let’s face it, scarier: sparkling white studded leather jeans, mesh backed black leather jackets, eye-wateringly short shorts, mini metallic kilts, skinny floral tube dresses cutaway at the back and both sides - this girl is as lacking in inhibitions as some might say she is in taste. There were moments of calm - one sheer chiffon slip had tropical blooms flowering up one side; another was sliced by leather panels - and the bright PVC shoppers would be quite irresistible on the beach. And the fact is, the tent was bulging with Cavalli’s loyal, and enormous, fanbase - all of whom left looking satisfied that what they’d been looking for, they’d found."

"Their freshest idea for Spring was to laser-cut humble cotton into narrow strips that they affixed onto tulle. The resulting coral-on-white sheath was crisp, not clingy; its demureness gave it a real appeal. Bonaccorsi’s hand was evident in newer, youthful shapes like the crop tops, which were a success, and the shorts-under-a-dress look, which may be happening on other runways but was less convincing here. Elsewhere, iridescent butterflies embroidered on the bodice of a gown and the hem of a shorter cocktail number were a shade too chaste. But falling squarely in the designers’ sweet spot this season was a cotton voile V-neck shirtdress with covered buttons and light blue lace appliqué. Nothing life-changing about it, but in this case, pretty was enough."
