FALL-WINTER 2012/2013
Risqué Business

For Fall/Winter 2012, legwear designer Emilio Cavallini presents a daringly sexy collection of tights and bodywear designed to incite a woman’s sexual fantasies.

In a unique departure from the usual catwalk show, Cavallini’s cutting-edge presentation at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center takes the form of cinema verité…a voyeuristic peek into the sensual and provocative world of a woman behind closed doors.

Shown on a dramatic 21-foot screen, the short film entitled “Risqué Business at the Florence Excelsior Hotel” captures a free-spirited woman on a short holiday in Florence. After shopping at the Emilio Cavallini boutique, she retreats to the privacy of her hotel room, where she tries on pair after pair of sexy tights and bodywear…oblivious to everything except the pleasure of her own body. She admires her reflection in the mirror, touches herself, strokes the tights with her fingertips, until she decides to leave the room wearing only a lacy, body-revealing catsuit.

“My collection took inspiration from 1950’s pin-up model Bettie Page, but really explores the sexual expression and fantasies of ALL women,” says Emilio Cavallini. “Bettie Page was the ultimate femme fatale, inciting the fantasies of men…and women… at a time when ‘nice girls’ wouldn’t dare to look like that…or act like that.”

Emilio Cavallini’s legwear and bodywear designs for Fall/Winter 2012 are for women who dare to be different…women who enjoy taking risks with their fashion choices. Cavallini’s focus on sensuality and individual expression is explored through legwear designs that go from shocking to chic. For more than 40 years, fashionable women around the world have chosen Cavallini hosiery for its unique designs, luxury fabrications, and incomparable quality.

Cavallini’s Fall/Winter 2012 Collection adds another level of drama, mystery and sexiness for women who aren’t afraid to be noticed. Daring and glamorous for modern-day vamps, the super-chic collection screams, “I’m not the average girl next door!”
