Cavalli: "American Fashion Is So Terrible You Can't Look At It"

D.Repubblica and Huffington Post went inside Roberto Cavalli's apartment to get the Italian designer's thoughts on design, global fashion, and what it takes to "make it" — innocuous enough, but somehow, the interview opened up a big ol' can of Cavalli worms.
In it, Roberto harshes on minimalism, design schools, and terrible American fashion: "American fashion […] is almost fashion. It's terrible and you almost can't even look at it, but it has been driven by a great journalist, Anna Wintour, who wants all women to be like her and to dress the way she does."

Verging on pastiche, Cavalli's mix of different trends, genres, cultures, eras, and sensibilities (for a quick look at what we mean, just look at his apartment), is definitely not on the minimalist train — and to be fair, he brings up plenty of inspiring points about individualism and fashion as art.
Though, this level of bashing seems more vindictive than anything else. Perhaps he is not getting enough of the sex in the daytime or the night? Perhaps he had a lip deflate? Maybe he fell off his exercise bike? And if we're really going to start pointing fingers about taste…we'd like to counter with this. Also, click through and pay attention to minute mark 2:05 in the video. A rotating bed, Roberto? We rest our case. (D.Repubblica)
