Walking into Roberto Cavalli’s new Just Cavalli Store in SoHo is like taking a little break from reality and entering the world of gold encrusted animal prints. Being lured with bubbly and a signature martini featuring Mr. Cavalli’s namesake vodka is certainly an element that helped with that.
The Italian designer pulled out all the stops for the opening of his ultra glam shop at 434 West Broadway, just steps away from Cipriani Downtown. A quick fashion show engulfed the crowd as models strutted looks from Just Cavalli’s collection through the entire store, ending outside in the freezing cold as they posed for photos with Roberto. A match made in heaven! A shopping spree at Just Cavalli and a bellini spree at Cipriani’s. I’ve probably already made your Saturday plans!
Inside the shop, Miranda Kerr barely posed for photos, as she was too busy lounging in V.I.P. of course. The scene was getting pretty nostalgic… Heather Graham was making small talk with former “Runs House” star Angela Simmons… I wonder what that conversation consisted of. Making a commotion when he walked in, Jonathan Cheban showed up sans Kim Kardashian- what a let down. And all W‘s Stefano Tonchi had to do was christen the space with his glorious presence.
Walking up and down glass staircases covered with translucent snake print is something everyone should do at least one time in their lives. The flagship store carries ready-to-wear, runway pieces, jewelry, handbags, and shoes. Stop by to get your print-fix.
