After the scandal in China, is associated with accusations of racism, the Italian brand Dolce & Gabbana decided to return home. Palazzo Litta in Milan, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana showed off a new couture collection – Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda.
Historic Palace in the Baroque style was the perfect backdrop for a magnificent collection of Italian designers, who dedicated it to Milan and its history – the place without which it is impossible to represent the brand. Each image was literally steeped in Italian history and art, and among the official hashtag collection you may notice the eloquent MadeInItaly.
Luxury dress, studded with pearls, lace and complex embroidery became the anthem of the great beauty, for which millions of tourists from all over the world go to Italy. From Dolce and Gabbana it looked kind of answer to all the detractors – they showed that true art has no boundaries and to admire the works of Titian or Botticelli does not interfere with nationality, skin color or eye shape.
By the way, the images of paintings by legendary Italian masters became the key leitmotif of the collection. For example, a hood made of moire fabric like gone with works by Titian, the three graces of Raphael can be seen on one of the skirts, and the portrait of Giovanna Tornabuoni, created in 1488, inlaid with mink fur. Special revival in a hall has caused the emergence of a model in a dress that’s a glimpse of the lady with an ermine, made with the technique of tapestry.
“We’ve been working on this collection, told backstage Domenico Dolce. – It all started with an idea, and then there was the emotion we wanted to convey, and began the study. We visited museums, saw the picture and gradually in our heads all came together. Italian art is a world heritage and we are happy to give him a new life.”
