Roberto Cavalli to unveil menswear collection with women's at Milan show in February

After his womenswear debut on the catwalks of Milan in September 2017, British designer Paul Surridge's first menswear collection has been eagerly awaited. However, the critics will finally have to wait until February for his most recent work to be unveiled.

For the latest take on the Cavalli man, the new creative director of the Florentine label, which has been owned by Italian investment fund Clessidra since April 2015, has decided to skip the January menswear week and to go for a co-ed cast of models for his show during the Milan women's fashion week next month.

"This season marks the first step of the menswear relaunch, which is why he decided not to organise an entirely separate show, but a mixed show of the women's collection accompanied by some 15 looks for men. A menswear pre-collection of 30 or so looks was already presented to buyers in November," the label told FashionNetwork.com. 

The traditional format of the two separate runway shows, of men's collections in January and June and of women's collections in February and September, should continue as usual thereafter.

Before joining Roberto Cavalli in May 2017, Paul Surridge, who is known first and foremost for his status as a men's fashion specialist and his minimalist style, served at the prestigious label Ermenegildo Zegna, heading its second line 'Z Zegna' from 2011 to 2014.
