1970s Roberto Cavalli Leather and Suede Dress


The playful and triumphant cockatoo will steal the attention away from you on this dress. His feathers of suede and metallic leather drape over the shoulder, down the back and across the side. He clutches a branch with a lilly, perhaps a totem of peace for stealing the spotlight? Or perhaps in an apology for his ruffled condition. Our strict condition policy flew out the window when we set eyes on him. Cavalli pieces this old simply do not come to market. When they do appear they are mearly printed leather and not fully appliqued like this dress is. Please take a look at our photos showing the subtle pink marks on the leather. We feel this doesn't detract too much from the aesthetic appeal of this piece and have priced it accordingly.
