Casa Cavalli Just The Zany Zoo You Might Expect

W magazine's ethereal December article on Roberto Cavalli marks the 40th anniversary of his eponymous fashion label. But, while the interviews were conducted on Cavalli's 32-acre Tuscan estate, this being W—and that being Roberto Cavalli—the accompanying photos were all about the fashions. So in order to honor Mr. Cavalli's long tenure as an advocate for iridescent paint and mid-90s technology (the guy rocks a 15-year-old Nokia), we went back in the New York Times archives to dig up some photos of his off-beat digs. Well, not too far. The Times snapped these pics of Cavalli's shiny, new studio in 2009. It just could be crazy enough to work.
