Fashion & Finance Friday!

First day of Spring and it falls on a Friday!  WHOOOP!!!!!!!!!!

Cavalli trumps Pucci – it is ON in Italy!  Roberto Cavalli announced this week that Peter Dundas will return to the casa de Cavalli after a hiatus from the house of animal-print-body-hugging-plunging-cleavage designs, where he worked between 2002 through 2005.

Should be interesting to see what happens to the rest of the ahem…collection.  If you cannot fight the urge to purchase, Barney’s just announced they will be carrying all the yeeziness!

Put that black turtleneck in the very back of your closet, pull out the brilliantly bright stilettos and celebrate the end of winter with a click of your heels and a clink of your champagne flute!

Marc Jacobs ended the shows in NYC, and he did not disappoint! Rich luxe colored furs, caramels, winter whites, mod patterns sequins, a little lace, some hand stitched organza and quite possibly some of the most beautiful dresses presented in a long time.  Almost like a celebration of his emancipation from other lines (Louis Vuitton) to give his line the love it demands!

Ralph Lauren’s collection was dreamy and rich, a line up of soft grey and purple and cream floated down the runway, dripping in cashmere, satin and wool crepes.  reversecommuter was hoping Ralph would end the show in one of those INCREDIBLE U.S. Olympic uniform sweaters, but alas his only nod to the snowy sports celebration was to be found on his feet!

Tod’s owner and all round favorite Italian patriarch (click here for why) is having a little spat with Fiat, or to be more specific with Fiat heir John “Yaki” Elkann, grandson to founder Gianni Agnelli.  The two “gentlemen” are throwing insults at each other in the media (click here to have a giggle), in a war of words that starting over soccer (football in the rest of the world except the U.S.).  The luxury Italian leather maker is also the owner of a soccer/football club in Italy, and it happens to be the main rival of the Fiat owned team.

I rigazzi sono rigazzi – that’s “Boys will be boys” in Italian!

On that note, pop some prosecco while wearing your cutest weekend get-up and celebrate love over this Valentine weekend!
