This collection from Dolce and Gabbana is based on Baroque and the traditions of Italy. It focuses on four regions of Italy, Meditteraneo, Barocco, Sicilia and Sera.
The garments included in each collection are all very different but they definitely have a strong Italian influence. I think that what makes this collection particularly effective is the contrast between each of the four collections. The embellishments are just something else and I love how the collection explores embellishments not often seen in modern day garments such as tapestry (as seen in the Barocco garments). Lace, sheer fabrics and busy, patterned fabrics are combined to create wonderfully ornate and elegant garments. The collection combines a palette of bright, fresh colours and deep colours to create striking garments.
Take a closer look at the jewellery as well, the combination of crocheted flowers, ornate metal charms, pearls and mini patterned squares to mimic tiles create beautiful earrings and necklaces.
I particularly like the Meditteraneo and Barocco collections. I would love to own the jacket and skirt made from doilies and the garments with tapestry embellishments on black fabric are my idea of perfection.
