Weekend Inspiration – Dolce & Gabbana – S/S 2014

Dolce & Gabbana had one of the outstanding collections during Milan Fashion Week.  Folks are still talking about the last look.

It’s funny, Dolce & Gabbana is a house I’ve appreciated for it’s tailoring, marketing, and red carpet looks, yet for some reason I never paid much attention to their RTW.

Unlike most houses that are expanding like crazy, especially into the cash-cow lower priced lines, Dolce & Gabbana closed down their very profitable D&G line in 2011.  They said one reason was the desire to get back to basics.

In getting back to basics, they’ve also returned to Sicily.  The island has had a strong influence on the designer’s work (Dolce is Sicilian and the two have a house in Stromboli).

When I finally made it to Sicily, I understood how and why the island drives their creativity.   I cannot wait to explore more of it.

This collection has convinced me to at least think about adding some florals to my spring/summer wardrobe.

I never wear florals.  I like to keep things simple and clean.   I’m short and don’t want to look like Great Auntie Gertrude’s sofa.

This dress is so not my style. I cannot stop looking at it.  Is it the color, the cut?  I don’t know but I’m loving this Sicilian almond blossoms dress.

  1. Beautiful. My favourite red. Would I wear it? Probably not but there is a lot in the latest collection I wouldn’t mind hanging in my wardrobe

    • I love the red too! Like you, not sure I would or could wear it but there are other pieces in the collection that I could see rocking next spring/summer.
