ROBERTO CAVALLI: ROBERTO CAVALLI

The Roberto Cavalli perfume belongs to the ambery floral family. It is an exuberant and sunny fragrance whose top notes, lit by pink peppers, exude a genuine strength of character. Vibrant and sensual, it exhilarates and mesmerises from the very first contact.

At the heart of the Roberto Cavalli perfume one finds all the majesty of the absolute of orange blossom. It is a colour as much as a scent that reveals an ultra-feminine trail and leaves no-one indifferent.

This sensuality finally wraps itself into the captivating base notes of the tonka beans that leaves an appetizing imprint on the skin… essentially addictive.

The artistic line of the Roberto Cavalli perfume bottle recalls the voluptuous curves of a sensual woman.

The solid glass base evokes the strength and the power of its character. Crowned by a tiara-shaped cap formed by Roberto Cavalli’s golden seal, the bottle is adorned with a tiger-print necklace reminiscent of its creator’s emblematic animal prints. The case is shaped like a seamed sheath dress with a turquoise hip-belt, typical of the unique colour work offered by the Florentine fashion house for over forty years.

“A luminous and sexy print”. Roberto Cavalli.

LIONEL MESSI AND DOLCE&GABBANA: AN ASSIST IN STYLE.

Barcelona FC goleador and Argentina superstar, Lionel Messi wears Dolce&Gabbana.

The Pulga Atomica (the atomic flea, a nickname he’s earned due to his small stature yet unmatched speed and dexterity) has attracted fans from every walk of life, including Dolce and Gabbana themselves.

“We are very happy to link our name to that of a great champion such as Leo Messi. Talent is innate, but it’s the passion and the sheer will we see while he plays that have elevated him to the highest level of worldwide football.” Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.

Messi, in fact has been wearing Dolce&Gabbana in all official occasions since 2010, giving him not only an iconic status on the pitch, but also off the pitch.

“I would like to thank Dolce&Gabbana for having made this collaboration possible. I have always had a preference for their sartorial style and I always loved the sophisticated image they project.” Lionel Messi.

Dolce&Gabbana has always had a privileged relationship with the sporting world. Since July 2010, the fashion powerhouse has set up a partnership with Chelsea FC; while the Italian brand has been a sponsor of A.C. Milan since 2004 and of the Italian National team since 2006. In addition, Dolce&Gabbana have chosen football stars for many advertisement campaigns as well as publications like Calcio and 2006 Dolce&Gabbana – Italia Campioni del Mondo, and most recently Milan Fashion Soccer Player Portraits which coincided with the team’s 18th Serie A title. These publications and endorsements have contributed to elevate football players into much more than mere sporting arena idols: they have made them into the style icons of today.

“Working with Leo is more than a fun and enjoyable experience, it is also a boundless source of inspiration for us, rooted in an ongoing dialogue between fashion and sports”. Domenecio Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
