Not content to rest on the laurels of last year's successful H&M collaboration, Roberto Cavalli is opening $30-million-dollar clubs. Simply called "Cavalli Club," the original is in Florence, but Dubai's opened this past weekend and Milan is next month. What's inside, you ask? "Floors made of black quartz, 20-foot-high ceilings dripping with Swarovski crystals and furnishings in his trademark animal prints. The club also includes a boutique showcasing jewelry, watches and a selection of the designer’s favorite gourmet Italian foods, and a range of Cavalli Club-branded home accessories, from lamps and cutlery to china and glassware." Sounds shiny! [WWD, subscrip req'd]
