Georgia May Jagger inspired Peter Dundas' latest Cavalli collection
Peter Dundas was inspired by Georgia May Jagger for his Autumn/ Winter 16 Roberto Cavalli collection.
The Norwegian designer has been the creative director of the Italian fashion house since March 2015, with his latest collection full of ‘70s-inspired pieces. As well as Georgia, the model daughter of Rolling Stones legend Mick Jagger and former fashion star Jerry Hall, he was also influenced by the style of Janis Joplin, Marianne Faithfull and Jimi Hendrix.
On the subject of Georgia, Peter gushed to Porter magazine: "The story is in her blood. She is so authentic, which is important to me, and she is so much fun. If you are next to Georgia May at a dinner you are guaranteed a good night."
Georgia joins a close group of female friends, including model Bianca Brandolini d’Adda and jewellery designers Noor Fares and Eugenie Niarchos, who Peter calls his witches or sorceresses.
"They’re always brewing something up and I love them to pieces,” he praised.
Maxi dresses, platform boots and skinny scarves all feature in the latest line from the luxury label.
Asked about his design process Peter, who is known for his opulent creations, admits he actually thinks about what his clothes will look like on the floor after they’ve been worn.
“I always design with the aim that someone will want to undress you,” smiled Peter.
Prior to his appointment at Cavalli, Peter helmed labels Emanuel Ungaro and then Emilio Pucci, where he made a name for himself as a fearless designer.
"Fashion is about being fearless. Wear things you love, but don’t worry about them fitting together – sometimes when you experiment with your favourite pieces, you get the best result," he previously told The Edit.
