In her recent appearance as a judge on the I’m a Celebrity special of Masked Singer UK, Rita Ora showcased her flair for a fashion staple, by taking the classic leopard print trend to new heights with a plunging catsuit.
The eye-catching jumpsuit was a creation from the Roberto Cavalli Autumn/Winter 2023 collection. Fausto Puglisi, the creative director of Roberto Cavalli since 2021, has immersed himself deeply in the Cavalli aesthetic this season.
With a longstanding history of dressing pop stars, Puglisi has long expressed his affinity for music as a driving force in his career. “Everything began with music in my career,” Fausto told Lux Mag, “My biggest supporters have always been music stars and I will continue to support them with Roberto Cavalli. The brand represents a continuous bond with music and so it will remain in the future. It comes to me spontaneously and naturally.”
The AW23 ready-to-wear collection transported the Cavalli woman to the American southwest, embracing a warm and earthy colour palette inspired by the desert sand. Denim blues and blacks intermingle with a touch of pink, grounding the collection in rusty aesthetics. The signature Roberto Cavalli woman exudes fierceness in her adventures, moving with wild abandon. Unrestrained accessorisation, exuberant prints, and a free spirit define the essence of the Italian house.
Leopard print, a perennial favourite among fashion enthusiasts during autumn, continues to be a wardrobe staple championed by Cavalli, but also by icons such as Kate Moss, Victoria Beckham, Adele, and Alexa Chung.
