Jean-Honoré Fragonard portrays a sitter holding a lapdog, wearing what he may have considered Spanish costume, but is actually a fanciful take on historical fashions of the early 17th century.
This Spring/Summer 2003 ensemble references 18th-century menswear, but inflects it with Cavalli’s signature sexiness and characteristic use of both denim and leopard print (for lining the cuffs). Cavalli replaces the expected breeches with a very on trend and daringly short mini-skirt and substitutes a silk bustier for the man’s waistcoat.
