If I ask you which brand keeps South Italian culture completely, I think you will answer Dolce and Gabbana without any doubt. Sicilian cultures inspirations are the most important character of DG, glamour like sunshine, attractive like flowers, classic like Sicilian women. The newest FW designs continue from the men's wear(many times men's collection could be a concept of woman's line...), presents 17-18 century Sicilian Baroque's architectures cultures. And I could say it was one of the most impressive shows during FW fashion weeks.
It is a perfect architecture and fashion's combination. They keep the classic sicilian royal lady's look, embroideries were inspired by carvings;prints were inspired by oil paintings; dress designs from woolen cross stitch carpets, capes from the dark velvet curtains, those lovely angel decorations could be your earrings...the inspirations from every part of the baroque architecture. Which elements could present a country's character and culture perfectly? Textiles and architectures. And they made them all.
