Dolce and Gabbana

A sacred showcase influenced by Dolce and Gabbana’s homeland, offers an ornate collection which stays true to the designers’ signature aesthetic.

Drawing inspiration from the architecture and history of Sicily’s Cathedral of Monreale, the Italian duo of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana present a decorative Autumn/Winter collection possessing opulent textures stained in rich pigments of golden yellow and ruby red. The spirit of the Catholic Church incarnated in the form of embellished short tunics with fluted sleeves wreathed in a mosaic effect or printed images of Saints.

The other outfits coexisting alongside these consecrated creations were more demure in tones of grey, black and white; their opulence resounding from the sheer dexterity with which the designers mould the luxurious fabrics into the fashion fantasies which they bless onto us.

Adding to the grandeur of the experience were the darling accessories; cascading rosaries grace the neckline and jewel encrusted crowns rest regally on soft swept back hair, taking queens of the catwalk literally. Pristine facial portraits with red wine stained lips are framed by charming chandelier earrings. Take time to appreciate the intricate detailing on the handbags and shoes which are absolutely magnificent and round off the collection perfectly.
