In celebration of the fortieth anniversary of its founding in Florence--a retrospective of classic, rich looks that created a fashion empire. The house that Roberto Cavalli founded in the sixties--with a signature look of printed silks, suede, and leather--now commemorates forty years of fashion innovation with a showcase volume lensed by fashion's illustrious photographer-duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott and art-directed by Fabien Baron. The Cavalli lexicon includes stunning images styled by premier fashion authority Marie-Amelie Sauve for supermodels of today and from fashion eras past--including Daria Werbowy, Angela Lindvall, Kate Moss, Gisele Bundchen, Carolyn Murphy, Cindy Crawford, and Heidi Klum--as well as quotes offered by celebrities, silver-screen actresses, and Grammy award-winning musicians. While always evoking refined sexuality, Cavalli as a label indicates the fluid definition of glamour and stands today as one of the first truly established international brands. The book's proceeds will be donated to amfAR, to benefit AIDS research.
