Blog: Cavalli puts Spice Girls back in fashion

Joe Ayling | 6 December 2007

Italian designer Roberto Cavalli is turning his hand to stage costumes at the moment, after causing shopping hysteria when his collection at H&M launched last month.
 
Cavalli has designed the costumes for the reformed British girl power group The Spice Girls as they embark on a global comeback tour, which started in Vancouver this week.
 
Ginger, Sporty, Scary, Baby and Posh, or Geri Halliwell, Melanie C, Melanie B, Emma Bunton and Victoria Beckham if you must, wore creations that include rigorous white and black tuxedos, silver space-age uniforms, shiny minidresses embroidered with Swarovsky crystals and feathers, sensual leather corsets and brightly coloured jumpsuits.
 
It seems that Posh Spice might well have been the driving force in the deal though.
 
Cavalli said: "I have known Victoria Beckham for a long time, and have always admired her style and personality. When we talked about the worldwide tour "The Return of the Spice Girls", she put forward the idea of me creating all their costumes to which I immediately agreed."
 
Cavalli's limited edition collection at H&M is only going to grow in stature now, if there's anything left that is.
