Home is where the heart is. Or, at least for Dolce and Gabbana‘s power duo Domenico Dolce and Steffano Gabbana. Season after season, ad campaign after ad campaign, Dolce and Gabbana salute their Italian heritage with glamour…and of course, beautiful clothing. But their Spring/Summer 2014 collection, presented Sunday at Milan Fashion Week, is perhaps their biggest collection of Italian Pride to date. This season, monuments and medallions join the signature lace and relaxed tunics…all while maintaining that classic Dolce palette of gold, black, and red. They’re the colors of royalty and suit the brand that’s risen to be true fashion royalty, Dolce and Gabbana.
To review this collection, that is a massive 77 looks, let’s start by knocking out a few standard staples that Dolce and Gabbana always knock out of the park, their interpretation of the LBD (little black dress).
Classic and gorgeous, with killer necklines. No one does a mid-calf black dress quite like Dolce and Gabbana. They’re always a staple in a Dolce collection (or wardrobe), but these are wonderful updates that are just to great to ignore.
Another traditional look of Dolce and Gabbana are the lace-overlay dresses of black bustiers. This year we saw a bit of a change with polka dots. It’s fun to see them take a look they always do so well, and mix it up a bit. These are both classic classic DG and lovely.
Polka dots weren’t the only twist to the signature black lace though. Medallions joined the party in the form of embellishment and accessories. This kicks off the running theme of this collection with vintage coins. They work really well as neck, waist, and hemline decoration but also as belts. I really love the money theme. Who doesn’t love money? 🙂
