Dolce&Gabbana as part of Alta Moda
Dolce & Gabbana fashion show in Alta Moda, traditionally, is one of the most mysterious and the most large-scale events in the fashion world.
The invitation receives a very narrow range of fashionistas, which includes close friends of designers, longtime clients and just a few members of the press. Before the fashion show is never made public, the lights, staged shootings and the slightest hint of what awaits guests are also absent. As an inspiration for the show was the film by Luchino Visconti «Leopard». Based on the novel of the same name, in which Claudia Cardinale and Alain Delon starred. This year’s fashion show Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda designers decided to move to their homeland Domenico Dolce – Palermo.
The podium was built right on Piazza Pretoria, near the famous fountain.
«Palermo for me is my life, my memories, my family – my mother, father, grandmother, grandfather …», — said Domenico Dolce.
The President of Sicily himself noted the importance of the Dolce & Gabbana show.
«As far as I can tell, Dolce & Gabbana are the best representatives of the Sicilian style. It flows through their veins. They do a lot for Sicily», — said Rosario Crockett, president of Sicily.
The new Dolce & Gabbana collection consisted of unified motifs taken from Sicilian folklore, architecture and wardrobe of Sicilian aristocrats. So lush silk skirts adorned prints in the form of stickers from Sicilian hotels. Which were fastened at the beginning of the 20th century to travel bags. Other skirts designers decorated with thin orange coral reefs with a pink tint, which provided the Sicilian jewelry center Sciacca. Despite the rich furnishings of the new collection, Dolce & Gabbana paid tribute to sports chic. Sports T-shirts made of silk and T-shirts with bright prints.
Despite the Sicilian mood of the new Dolce & Gabbana collection, references were also received to the Brazilian carnival. This and huge hats, lush skirts with rich embroidery and patterns, buildings on the head with a huge number of feathers and the most vivid colors. In Dolce & Gabbana collection, there were also elements without any sign for the Fashion House – gold, crowns, flowers and embroidery with the use of jewelry, silk, brocade and appliqués.
