INTO THE WILD
With his sheer yet opulent prints, Roberto Cavalli is a master of haute-hippie dressing
Who: Italian maestro of wonderfully excessive bohemian dressing.
Why now: In beautiful but barely there, diaphanous fabrics, Cavalli adds a flirtatious edge to traditionally louche silhouettes.
Hot pieces: Silk slip dresses in art-nouveau prints and voluminous silk pants are the ultimate in luxe vacation dressing.
The designer's take: "My creations celebrate feminine sensuality."
