Milan Fashion Week AW 2013: Dolce & Gabbana

Monday, 25 February 2013

This snowy Sunday was a very busy day for the Italians divided between election day and .concerns about their resigning pope. With this state of feeling in mind, the Dolce & Gabbana show called "Tailored Mosaic" was the perfect metaphor for church and state. The designers' previous collections were often inspired by their Sicilian heritage, but never so clearly as in the beginning of this one, with prints of mosaics and stained glass windows inspired by the 12th century Byzantine and Venetian murals in the Cathedral of Monreale. This part was the perfect representation of the church. The next part of the show presented herringbone tweed suits, over the knee skirts and A-line dresses. Adding drama to this incredible mix was the background music chosen from soundtracks of Federico Fellini's films. The grand finale showed a multitude of red lace evening dresses.

Among my favorite looks were the golden mosaic pieces in the first part of the show paired with luxurious headpieces reminding me of the old Byzantine Empire such as the mini dress and the ones with straps or the mosaic skirt paired with a black lace top. From the second part of the show I thought that the grey tweed suits were very flattering and well executed and I really loved the black lace knee-length dress and of course the mesmerizing bejewelled red lace dresses. This is my rather long selection of the most interesting looks from the runway (when you have 75 amazing looks to choose from, editing becomes quite difficult!):

Which part of the show was your favorite - the church or the state? Everything was so full of color and flamboyant, that I really wouldn't know what to choose if I were you!. What were your favorite looks from this collection?

What i love about Dolce and Gabbana is how they set trends with their uniquely Italian inspired designs, they never stray far into the modernism of fashion but stick to what they know which works for them. Loves this collection, its baroque 2.0, the embellished and lace dresses were so stunning. thanks so much for sharing your fashion opinions with me! said...
