While making their new collection, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana brought out the woman's masculine side, focusing on 3 things:
-“sartorialità”, tailoring. Paying attention to details. Every seam, every button, every sleeve and shoulder impeccably finished. Gorgeously crafted jackets, a double-breasted classic, a cropped style chopped off above the waist and a subtle hourglass shape opened the show. And the dramatic finale offered 70 more examples of the finest tailoring Dolce and Gabbana have been working on. Such perfection is only achieved the old-fashioned way, through the dedication and highly skilled hands of the atelier, to whom the designers paid tribute with a video of the team hard at work in their white lab coats that screened before the show and the finale.
-"sicilianità", heritage, as always their muse was an ordinary sicilian woman where traditional black lace and widow dresses are constant inspiration. (Monica Bellucci in Malèna.)
-"sensualità", playing with shapes,combining two different fabrics such as chiffon and wool, The dresses also came in wispy silks, polka dots and familiar florals, which joined leopard prints and a hefty lingerie influence in an ode to the boys’ greatest hits. It was all lovely in a way that was quiet by house standards, with the most flash owed to the aforementioned medallions. Inspired by the gold offered up in prayer to the saints, they were pinned all over bustiers, shrunken jackets and knitted bodysuits, in what seemed like a reverential nod to the house’s miraculous past.
