Roberto Cavalli passes away

Cavalli utilized these methods to craft his signature aesthetic: patchwork designs on denim and leather that became his trademark collection, worn by style icons like Bridget Bardot. Cavalli was one of the pioneers to use leather and suede textiles like these as textiles rather than just surface embellishments, producing garments which combined functionality with sensuality. His seductive yet feminine designs have earned him a place in the Fashion Hall of Fame, while also garnering high profile clients such as Jennifer Lopez and Mary J Blige as celebrity customers.
