Against a backdrop of a typical village setting, Dolce & Gabbana took fashionistas on holiday to Italy on 27 September, with a spring collection that paid tribute to the designer duo’s home country. Domenico Dolce is a Sicilian fashion designer and entrepreneur. Along with Stefano Gabbana, he is one half of the luxury fashion house Dolce & Gabbana. Since founding D&G in 1985, Dolce has become one of the world’s most influential fashion designers and an industry icon.
This season, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana decided to create an ode to Italia, a celebration of the wonders and beauty that their home country provide to the locals and to the tourists that joyously visit,Milan Fashion Week.
Dresses were ornamented with everything from the city’s names in bright gold threads to the country’s
art and architectural landmarks like the leaning tower of Pisa, Michelangelo’s David and even the Colosseum. Of course the number of simple tshirts, shift dresses and floor sweeping gowns with the statement “I love Italy” or “Italia is love” embroidered onto them was also a clue.
This time with flower buds and fruit shapes encrusting their surfaces classic elegant silk printed scarves also joined the head adorning party this season. However fun and flirty the clothing, to us, the accessories nearly stole the show. Their much sought after headphones and headband crowns made reappearance.
There were smart and modish bolero-type blazers paired with buttoned vests and cropped cigarette pants, a plethora of uber colorful embroideries of big and bright floral motifs which seemed to dance atop of dress coats, circle skirts.
Silk organza gowns, and of course plenty of femme fatale black lace dresses and two-piece options, most of which were covered in glitters and crocheted appliques of fruits, flowers and women sunbathing on what was sure to be on the beaches of the Amalfi coast.
