PETER DUNDAS has been appointed as creative director at Roberto Cavalli. Dundas will assume the role immediately, vacating his position at the helm of Emilio Pucci. Rumours swirled late last year that Cavalli was set to relinquish his role as designer at his eponymous brand in favor of a shareholder role.
Dundas studied at Parsons in New York before moving to Paris, where he became an assistant to Jean Paul Gaultier in 1992. Eight years later, he moved to Christian Lacroix where he remained for two years before arriving at Cavalli. Three years spent in Florence, working under Cavalli, greatly influenced his future aesthetic – “The greatness of the city, which unfolds in the morning hours, is humbling and challenges me to make my mark. But it also provokes me, and permits a certain naughty, punk side of me to unfold” – which he honed in the subsequent decade as creative director of Emanuel Ungaro and then Emilio Pucci, where he arrived in 2008.

With Spring here but realistically not really ~I took it into my own hands to own the moment and channel some Spring vibes with a monochromatic mint-themed look. Naturally because this is out of my [all black everything] comfort zone I took it upon myself to balance the brightness with the military Just Cavalli coat that did the trick perfectly… ALSO.. Can we take a moment to pause and catch our breathe after being mesmerized by this Spring/Summer 2014 CHANEL Trompe L’oeil Boy Bag? Ain’t it just somethin’?.. It’s like other wordly ain’t it?? I am kinda obsessed to the point I have been practically sleeping with it… BUTT In further news please please please forgive me for the big lack of posting since getting back to Canada from Europe. As I always say/you can imagine the madness didn’t stop when I got back from travelling the last 3 months for men’s, haute-couture & women’s fashion weeks in America & Europe. Once I landed is was go go go as it was also Toronto Fashion Week here in the city and I was part of the very small team producing and executing the biggest, if not most important fashion show of the week. It was beyond anything I could of ever expected and really pushed me to all my limits, needless to say,I came, I saw, I twerked, I worked and long behold… I conquered and am really proud of everyone who was part of this journey, and I am pretty damn honored myself to of been able to be part of something so ground breaking in Toronto. Anyways I have some exciting and chic posts coming up in the next few days so stay tuned okay!? XOJAY…
