Peter Dundas' top 10 dresses for Roberto Cavalli '70s glamour & more

Ciao Ciao Peter Dundas. The Norwegian designer leaves Roberto Cavalli after only one year and seven months, continuing the musical chairs game that in the last period has characterised the fate of many Houses, from Lanvin to Dior, passing through Saint Laurent and Versus Versace, always in search of the perfect creative director.

Apparently, the separation between Dundas and the Florentine House is part of a general transformation that includes cutting 200 positions, closing the brand’s Milan offices and moving all functions to Osmannoro, near Florence.

We thank Peter Dundas for his contribution to the brand, and we wish him well for his future. As Roberto Cavalli goes through a period of transformation, the design team will carry on and the appointment of a new creative director will be made in due course”, the company's CEO Gian Giacomo Ferraris told WWD, while Peter Dundas said: “I want to thank Roberto Cavalli and the group for this valuable experience and I wish them the best in their future endeavours. I am especially grateful to the atelier and the team who participated in this adventure”.

The Scandinavian creative's career began in 2005 at Emanuel Ungaro, continuing at Dolce & Gabbana and in 2008 as Creative Director of Emilio Pucci. In 2015 he returned at Roberto Cavalli, where he had worked from 2002 to 2005 as chief designer.

His debut collection, presented in September 2015, was fresh, gipsy and a little '80s. His success continued in the following six.

Dundas style, who won for example Kim Kardashian and Ciara’s approval, is inspired by rock musicians such as Keith Richards, Mick Jagger or Jimmy Page and their hyper cool girls, from Marianne Faithfull to Kate Moss.

His most iconic creation? The yellow gown, part of Roberto Cavalli’s FW16 collection, worn by Beyoncé in her video for Lemonade.
