Cowboys will never be the same again.

The Roberto Cavalli show most definitely created an air of anticipation. AW12 included an alternative cast to his collection and it did not fail to create a strong and exciting response. Crocodile Dundee meets Indiana Jones meets Hell Raiser was the feel as a cast more associated with a more avant-garde brand walked down the catwalk. Although the staple Cavalli looks remained-the pointed toe boot, slim fit trouser and the awakening bright colours-this was more to do with the new found, dark and mysterious attitude, highlighted by a finale in which all of the models appeared wearing dark black ponchos. A large, silhouetted blues performer provided the soundtrack to the show. Cowboys will never be the same again.
