"The Cavalli man embodies a seductive gentleman's soul. He looks at the future without forgetting about the past. He adds a personal touch to his elegance through his wardrobe's sartorial attitude and the prints inspired by the nature surrounding him, which are made geometric in order to express a strong, sophisticated personality." - Roberto Cavalli, creative director, Roberto Cavalli  


"I was very inspired by early 20th-century motor sports and the classic suiting that men were wearing even when they were driving race cars and motorcycles - they seamlessly pulled off dapper and rugged at the same time and I wanted to recreate this vibe for the fall-winter collection." - Mark McNairy, designer, Woolrich Woolen Mills
