Cavalli’s impact on the fashion world remained profound even as digital shows emerged around 2000, marking him as a revered figure enjoying renewed fame. He embodied an aura reminiscent of Hugh Hefner, notably appearing at the fall 2001 show with a pipe. His reimagining of the Playboy bunny costume in 2005 further solidified his iconic status. Despite the challenges he faced, Cavalli’s work exuded vitality and a celebration of life itself.

Born in Florence in 1940, Cavalli’s upbringing was marked by tragedy, with his father’s tragic death and subsequent stutter profoundly shaping his early life. His mother’s ingenuity in sewing to support the family set the stage for Cavalli’s journey into fashion. Starting with hand-painted sweaters in 1960, Cavalli’s passion for textiles led him to establish his own printing techniques, culminating in the formation of his first factory.


A pivotal moment in Cavalli’s career came from a chance encounter, where his fabrication of printing leather impressed Mario Valentino. This led to a groundbreaking innovation and paved the way for Cavalli’s signature style. His boutique in Saint-Tropez, frequented by luminaries like Brigitte Bardot, epitomized youthful, avant-garde fashion. Cavalli’s trajectory continued with expansions into denim and red-carpet glamour, earning him accolades and celebrity clientele.

Throughout his illustrious career, Cavalli remained a larger-than-life figure, embodying a philosophy of exuberance and vivacity. His colorful persona extended beyond fashion, permeating every aspect of his life and leaving an indelible mark on the industry. Cavalli’s legacy endures through his successors, who continue to embody his spirit of boldness and creativity in fashion.
