Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce were once again inspired by their Sicilian roots to create a colourful Spring 2013 collection for Dolce & Gabbana.
We saw luxe beach holiday attire including colourful striped dresses, crop tops, short suits, bloomers, and folk appliqués reminiscent of Sicily’s vibrant street markets.
But it wasn’t all about having fun beside the seaside; there were many red-carpet-worthy looks too.
There were fitted printed dresses, signature bustier dresses with exotic prints, peasant dresses, basketweave skirts, sheer long-sleeve dresses, chic blouses, high-waisted skirts and black lace dresses with Monica Belluci’s name written all over them.
We often say the stars like Diane Kruger and Zoe Saldana would look great in a sack; well, they will be able to put that theory to the test by donning the burlap sack dresses presented in this collection.
Wicker corsets and dresses closed the show. These theatrical, show-stopping pieces I can see being worn by the likes of Fergie and Katy Perry.
The models sported a printed headscarf, and each look was styled with a festive accessory from oversized beaded earrings, colourful wedges, beaded pointy flats, embellished totes, striped totes, oversized waist belts with colourful fringing and updated Miss Sicily bags.
