In an interview with Racked Miami, Roberto Cavalli dishes on what's to come at his new restaurant, Cavalli Restaurant and Lounge, why Miami is fitting for his first venture in the U.S., and what one should wear when visiting Cavalli when it opens on Ocean Drive – why Cavalli, of course. We've pulled the fashion mogul's six best quotes and listed them below.
· On choosing Miami for Cavalli Restaurant & Lounge:
"Miami is such a wonderful and lively city, full of places to see. It is becoming a mecca for style, design and fashion...It is constantly changing and evolving and I wanted to be a part of that process."
· On designing the restaurant:
"My silk prints, tribal prints and damask prints have been morphed and have become the fabrics for the tables. There is no difference with designing a fashion line."
· On being unique:
"No concept will ever be even remotely similar to what I have created."
· On tackling the food industry:
"I love style and I believe it was only a natural passage for me to go from fashion to design and especially to branch out into the hospitality division. It was simply a matter of timing and deciding how to share my inspirations...Cavalli is not only a fashion brand; it is a lifestyle."
· On what people should expect:
"They have to expect glamour, happiness, sensuality and lot of surprise."
· On proper attire:
"Well, clearly if they are wearing Roberto Cavalli they will be absolutely perfect..."
