The 2016/17 Autumn -Winter collection from Dolce & Gabbana has been inspired by the luscious trees and plants found in the beautiful Botnical Gardens of Palermo. We all know that Sicily has always been a fundamental part of this brand’s DNA and the exotic and magnificent colours will be a most welcome ray of light for this next fashion season.
One of the main motifs used is that of the banana leaf and the fruit itself. It is visible on many of the pieces in the collection – dresses, blouses, pants but also handbags, sunglasses, shoes and even phone cover accessories, all immaculately patterned and embroidered in a perfect luxury finish with other adorable motifs of small insects and fruit that merge together randomly, but in a most magical and delicate way, that only great designers like Dolce & Gabbana are capable of achieving.
The designer duo have also used their “savoir faire” to create clothing and accessories like bags in python and satin sandals adorned with Swarovski crystals that are arranged in a special way to catch the light. Dolce & Gabbana have also produced some exceptionally nice gold-plated, crystal and enamel jewellery that is all handmade in Italy, where they again take inspiration from their Sicilian exotic garden, where flowers, fruits, ladybugs or bees decorate rings, earrings and necklaces.
This collection evokes the tropical style and now available to be admired and purchased in their network of stores and when one passes their stores, you cannot but be reminded that the theme is also in perfect harmony with the festive atmosphere of the Olympic Games that are presently taking place in Rio de Janeiro. The collection is colourful, humorous and charmingly tropical – as the city of Rio, which has as one of its symbols the famous “Botanical Garden” and its majestic banana trees.
A wink perhaps to “The wonderful city of Rio. Coincidence or not, the Dolce & Gabbana style will delight lovers of their “hot” Tropical style.
