This just in: Peter Dundas, formerly at the helm of Emilio Pucci, has been named the new Creative Director at Roberto Cavalli. The choice is fitting as Dundas’ mastery of print and color have become his signature, which will marry seamlessly with the Cavalli aesthetic (Dundas previously served as Cavalli’s chief designer from 2002 to 2005). Roberto and Eva Cavalli shared their excitement regarding the decision: “The choice of Peter Dundas was made with the desire to evolve a style that combines glamour, tradition and innovation, recognized worldwide as the signature of Cavalli since the birth of the house.” In the aftermath of the normcore movement color and print are once again emerging into the sartorial spotlight, and this appointment serves as continued evidence the fashion world embraces the shift. In honor of the brilliance Dundas will inevitably bring to the fashion house, we’ve rounded up standout Cavalli pieces to shop now—we can’t wait to see what’s in store for seasons to come.
