About Roberto Cavalli...
Roberto Cavalli women's shoes is created by the internationally known designer, Roberto Cavalli. Born in Florence, Italy, Roberto Cavalli was influenced by his artistic family and especially by his grandfather Giuseppe Rossi, a Florentine painter from the Macchiaiolo movement, whose pieces can be seen in the Uffizi Museum. Roberto Cavalli had a calling at a young age for art and fashion and attended the Academy of Art in Florence, Italy.
Fascinated by his love of art and fashion, Roberto Cavalli experimented with painting and printing patterns on clothing. He created his own unique printing style that allowed printing with no interruption to the design when applying them to clothing. This process became so successful that in 1966, the first Roberto Cavalli factory opened. Roberto Cavalli then experimented with leather and created a six color printing technique on leather. Later he experimented with sewing together unmatched leather patchwork apparel pieces. These were extremely successful and are considered classics. Headstrong and tenacious, Roberto Cavalli refuses to bend, holding strong to his unique vision and style. In 1972, he showed his first runway collection with patchwork on denim.
Roberto Cavalli uses nature and animal photography in his prints, as nature allows a multitude of exciting and interesting subjects for his artwork. Always experimenting, Roberto Cavalli's use of color and texture, along with his creative mind, produces exquisite footwear. The Roberto Cavalli collection includes shoes, sandals, heels, mules, platforms, and boots for women that are sexy, imaginative and unique. Roberto Cavalli shoes are an international success that any woman with a unique sense of beauty and style can appreciate.
