Salvador Rocks: Cavalera Spring 2013 Show

SAO PAULO – The theme for the Cavalera show during Sao Paulo Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013 was Salvador Rocks. The location differed from other runway shows we’ve seen at SPFW so far as it took place in a junkyard in Bristol. The collection taps into a development of the style of Cavalera which the brand and Creative Director Albert Hiar has been trying to pursue: the use of urban pieces, utilitarian motifs, and a bit of motorcross vibrancy thrown in. This brought fabrics like denim, viscose, and gauze to the forefront, but silk macrame and georgette was also a part of it. There was a mix of fabrics, shapes, patterns, and colors, with a call to pay more attention to the hard workers of the fashion industry.
