Yesterday marked the fifth and final day of Milan Fashion Week. Designers including Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Prada and Fendi revealed their fall/winter 2014 collections. Among all of them, Dolce and Gabbana released a romantic European inspired new line for fall and winter. The two designers took a new approach to the silhouettes and prints they used in this collection. It incorporates the famous sights and the culture of Italy with bold naturalistic prints and the creative use of floral prints and fur.
In this collection, there was a variety of pieces from formal fur coats to sophisticated bold print dresses. The inspiration for this collection, called “Once Upon a Time in Sicily”, was a romantic Sicilian fairytale. Dolce and Gabbana told the story of little red ridding hood from their perspective within the collection. The show began with ‘little red ridding hood’ wearing a fur hood and red floral dress. Each model that walked down the runway was a new character in this creative runway show.
Backstage before the fashion show on Sunday, Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce said, “Every woman wants to be a fairy”. And they certainly dressed the models in garments that reflected the feminine and natural qualities of fairies.
The Little Red Ridding Hood story was ended with several bedazzled female knights walking down the runway. This collection features luxurious, decorative, yet wearable garments that can be anticipated on the red carpet in fall.
What is your favorite look in the collection?
