STORY: Roberto Cavalli designed a spring/summer collection which was inspired by a futuristic world which the designer described as his 'Cavalli fantasy'.

He said the colours in his collection were all inspired by nature with floral prints on many of his designs.

But the 72-year-old Italian designer said any woman can be the Cavalli lady, and described women as being 'butterflies'.

"Do you know with my printing it's silk, light silk, because for me every girl is a butterfly and they should fly,'' said the designer before his Milan Fashion Week show on Thursday (September 19)

The collection included floaty separates, with a sexy twist with bra tops and midriffs on show.
