IN THE MOOD FOR MORE

Hong Kong Tatler - - Milan -

roberto Cavalli China is clearly on Cavalli’s mind. With the open­ing of the Cos­tume In­sti­tute’s China: Through the Look­ing Glass ex­hi­bi­tion in New York, Cavalli re­vis­ited Wong Kar-wai’s In the Mood for Love. A cheongsam made of win­dow­pane fab­ric that was worn by Mag­gie Cheung in the 2000 film led the de­signer to use silk in a sim­i­lar pat­tern, although it was fur­ther em­bel­lished with pail­lettes of feather fringes. Else­where in the col­lec­tion, hints of Eastern in­flu­ences, from chrysan­the­mum blooms to hand-beaded em­broi­deries, made their way onto fig­ure-hug­ging gowns with high necks in a sim­i­lar fash­ion to a Chi­nese qi­pao.
