I love a woman, I love to judge how beautiful she is, how beautiful I can make her.” The King of Excess is known for his words, as he is for his designs. And now, in a tell-all book about his life, he will, once again, reveal his candour.
"In a few months, you will know everything," Roberto Cavalli told Vogue UK. "I don't know why I decided to do it - I guess I had something to write. It doesn't really talk about fashion though, it talks about me and my life."
The 300-page autobiography is scheduled to launch in October this year. While the Italian and German versions are on the cards, a British publisher is yet to be found.
Other legendary designers in the literary club include Christian Dior and Coco Chanel. In fact, The World According to Karl, a tribute to Lagerfeld, is scheduled to hit the shelves this September.
Here’s a look at iconic Roberto Cavalli quotes:
"I love women's fashion, but women don't need me as much as men do. It's the men who have nothing to wear."
"What is too much? There is no such thing!"
"In my planet, fashion, I'm the only straight man."
"I copy the dress of an animal because I love to copy God. I think God is the most fantastic designer." - Elle
