MILAN, Feb 24, 2009 / FW/ — In a surprised announcement early today, Roberto Cavalli cancelled the Just Cavalli Fall 2009 / Winter 2010 catwalk show scheduled on Thursday, February 26th.
“I have made this decision in order to protect the Just Cavalli image and its clients… the difficult Ittierre situation leaves me with no guarantee and no certainty that my young line will be as avant-garde as always,” Roberto Cavalli said.
“Over the past 9 years the Just Cavalli brand has been a considerable success. Our research laboratory is among the most advanced and the line is inspired by a need for stylistic freedom and innovation.
The heart of my young brand is still beating strong, and it is my wish to present my summer collections again in September with the same aggressiveness and positivity for which the Just Cavalli brand has always been a symbol… your faith in us will take us far…” the Florentine designer added.
