Roberto Cavalli opens at Plaza Senayan

Italian designer Roberto Cavalli has spread his wings wider to this side of the world by opening the first South East Asian store at the upscale Plaza Senayan, a high-end mall in Jakarta, the capital and business center of Indonesia. Known for his trademark usage of sexy silhouettes, flairs and serpent motifs in his creation, the designer's collections are favorite among Indonesian and Asian socialites and celebrities alike.

Last year, French-Indonesian singer Anggun performed at her concerts in Jakarta, Medan and Surabaya in his sexy and sensuous designs while Christina Aguilera had her entire stage wardrobe designed by the designer himself, all inspired by the eras of Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo. Other celebrities who favor Cavalli's sexually-charged designs are no other than British socialite and ex-Spice Girls, Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, Beyonce Knowles and her Destiny's Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.

This upcoming season, Roberto Cavalli is playing with (again) sexy silhouettes, prints and volumes. A bit of ethnic touch were given to the new collection while animal prints of Zebra and leopard, as well as python is the designer's collection mainstay. Bustier in red python skin and V-neck caftan dress in radiating zebra print with elongated sleeves are the must-haves in your Cavalli collection stock.

At the recent Milan show for Fall/Winter 2007-08 collection preview, the Italian designer brought back his famous Glamazon look on the runway stage. Models sashayed jodhpurs with hats, luxurious chinchilla fur coat in toffee brown, smooth and silky chiffon dresses flowing freely with glittering details and pantsuits in metallic silk sateen fabrics. The Fall/Winter 2007-08 Collection will be in stores by September to early October.
