Milan Fashion Week AW 2014: Dolce & Gabbana

Wednesday, 26 February 2014

Dolce & Gabbana presented once again a show deeply rooted into the traditions of the designers' native Sicily. This collection was inspired by medieval fairy tales issued from the fact that the island was once ruled by French invaders bringing Catholicism, castles and chivalric codes with them. The scene was set in an imaginary forest and the garments were adorned with recurring motifs inspired by illustrations of knights and ladies and flowers and animals that can be find on old medieval manuscripts. The beautifully crafted garments were only matched by the elaborate armour-inspired accessories completing the looks: from soft chain-mail hoods and bejeweled gauntlets and gloves up to the flat pointy page-boy flats and boots. As for the details on the clothes, the myriad of playful, naïve motifs was like a breath of fresh air - appliqué squirrels, owls, hedgehogs, foxes, birds and trees, one could even catch a glimpse of what would look like Little Red Riding Hood!

Special adornments aside, the House still remains true to its aesthetic and beneath all the glitz and playfulness of this collection we can always see the classic curvy knee-length dresses  that draws women of all ages towards the brand. It's as difficult to pick any favorites as it was to edit the photos from the show, so I'll just name a few, such as the floor-length gown in the opening photo, the green cape with foxes, the grey wool dress with black velvet embroidery, the brown dress with the recurring key and floral motifs, the blue dress with appliqué owls, the indigo coat with fur pockets and hood, the red coat with squirrels, the yellow knee-length dress and of course the fabulous black dress with a square neckline. Have a look at my selection of the most interesting looks from the runway:

What do you think of the accessories? I think it's just the right mix of fashion and knight's armour, very refreshing.

I really enjoyed this collection, it appeals to those young at heart through the whimsical illustrations, keeping it simple and elegant enough at the same time. What did you think of their inspiration? Any favorite looks?
