For Fall 2014, Roberto Cavalli made the flapper fierce with equestrian additions, firelight hues, and lots of fur Roberto Cavalli’s Fall 2014 lineup was a celebration of the ’20s, ’30s, and ’40s. Sinuous flapper dresses and geometric prints were reworked with embellishments and patterns. The source of his inspiration was the life of American photographer and model Elizabeth (Lee) Miller, the celebrated freelancer of the era who was muse to artist Man Ray. She had walked the ramps of New York and Paris, and covered events of the WWII as a war correspondent. She was even suspected of being a Soviet spy. Cavalli translated her glamour and grit through furs dyed in fiery hues to represent the wartime scenery that Miller would no doubt have been through. The silhouettes changed from drop-waist dresses to flares-and-biker jackets, referencing Miller’s American heritage. Cavalli ended the show with delicately embellished gowns, as if yearning to go back into Miller’s Parisian past, balancing ferocity with fabulousness.
