With such FANTASTIC men-bags around, there is no excuse left for men to carry bagpacks or nylon notebook bags.
I love these bags and would love to wear number 1 - 5 myself. With so many great men-bags around I think we`re heading for a culture of unisex bags and I mean that in a good way - classic style shared, truly matching both sexes.
The Roberto Cavalli Fall/Winter 2011-2012 advertising campaign stars Natasha Poly, Mariacarla Boscono and Karen Elson. They are exceptional muses of the Florentine designer, who chose to use women with different personalities and appearances through which to represent his collection. Each of them embodies a characteristic of the Cavalli women: sensuality, sweetness and determination.
Mert & Marcus, who have for many seasons interpreted the spirit of the Maison Cavalli collections, shot the campaign in Black Park, a beautiful location not far from London.
Nature and the clothes come together. Set in a charming woodland, flowers, trees and leaves create a magical, mysterious and enchanting atmosphere. The setting is complemented by three elegant creatures, while at the same time a kaleidoscope of images created by mirrors and refractions of light are unfolding.
In a dream-like and metaphorical setting, the duality of a woman is expressed by armour-like clothing, animated with bright metallics: a light that is turned on and shapes the body from within, that sculpts the female anatomy and transforms it, rendering it futuristic, ready to embark on the path to a new sensuality.

The inspiration for the look was famous mosaic portrait of Theodora, the Empress of the Byzantine Empire Mosaic from the Saint-Vital de Ravenne Basilica. She lived in the 6th century and was empress of Byzantium from 527-548, probably having been the most influential and powerful woman in the empire's history.
“The portrait gave me a focus point : the red eye shadow/liner that she wears on the arch of her eyebrows. This look is all about light and rich textures. The choreography between gold, bronze, black and red can be easily personalized according to the desires of each woman.” (Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of Chanel Makeup)
