Dolce & Gabbana has proven to be not just a brand, but a heritage to the Italian culture. Its rich gold embroidered dresses from last season were a prominent collection that gave through another chapter in its Sicily theme for spring. The collection was as usual….fresh, young, and full of happiness.
Prints were introduced in a bright jolly structure paired with puppet theater earrings that marked the roots of Domenico’s beloved Sicily. Raffia dresses were a major turning point in the show, demonstrating what a rich culture the south of Italy has to offer, for most of the raffia pieces were made with the help of Sicily. The vivid embroideries injected into the raffia dresses and skirts made the models appear so feminine, yet so delicate. Stripes were another element that were done very well, and will probably have most women desperate for the collection to arrive at near boutiques in spring (for those who don’t have a personal contact with Dolce & Gabbana). One part of the collection we thought was quite interesting was the manner that prints and lace were paired together. “We make a dress, I hope good, in a good way, but the people want a story, a philosophy,” were some words that Domenico Dolce chose to describe his presentation, which by the way Mr. Domenico, you do know how to make a great dress.

As we know, the show couldn't end with the last couple of models wearing raffia corsets, which surprisingly pleased everyone. In our opinion, the corsets were more of a beautiful craftsmanship that could be enjoyed in an art exhibition than a daily wardrobe piece, but who knows whom we may be seeing wearing it. One thing we can assure is that the entire accessories in this collection were to die for (literally). An upgrade in your accessories next spring would probably be a good choice to begin with this brand, and if your at it, a wardrobe full of prints, stripes, and raffia could be another choice, if you happen to still have money left in your clutch.
