Just a decade ago, the flamboyant, provocative style of Indian cinema known as Bollywood drew condescending grins from the European fashion industry. However, it seems that since then the tastes of the Western public have changed somewhat and now the leading fashion designers of the world are turning their eyes to the mysterious India.
The latest to fall under the spell of the Indian entertainment film industry is Italian designer Roberto Cavalli. In his new spring-summer 2005 collection, the maestro offers a bright, defiant kitsch that combines modern Indian traditions and retro fashion from the time of colonial rule. However, as the master himself admits, he simply copies the style of the great creators of the European fashion tradition Paul Poiret and Leon Bakst, who at one time also drew many original ideas from the millennial oriental tradition.
A combination of denim and bright sparkling tinsel, short jackets and richly embroidered micro jackets, bodysuits and dresses that fit the figure like a second skin, more suitable for five-year-old girls, layering, colorfulness, play with floral patterns, ruffles and frills - this is the new collection presented to the fashionable audience Cavalli.
