The Spanish influence in Sicily, Italy inspired the two designers, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana to combine the two cultures and develope a collection to dream of. As Vogue UK states:” … of this another bejewelled, lace smothered, embroidered and floral adorned collection that took their stock sensibility (you can spot one of their dresses a mile off) and transposed it with a Spanish theme.”
I chose a black lace dress combined with bejewelled shoes and the Miss Sicily Mini purse for my second look at the Dolce & Gabbana store in Zurich. Once again the store decoration proved how well it goes with the Dolce & Gabbana vision; As gently romantic they appear, their strength is that of a wounded bull. That contrast has always been at the heart of the Dolce & Gabbana vision of femininity, and goes back to their roots. The silhouettes are femininely and as always, their narrative is enriched by the superb work on fabrics and adornment, gilding any idea with the scintillating edge of fantasy. Their fashion is offering the empowered vision of women ready to stand and grab any bull by the horns in the arena of life (nowfashion.com).
A strong woman does not have to wear clothes without any touch of feminity. Making a strong appearance while “dressed to kill” makes you even more powerful and respected by your counterpart. And that’s excactly what Dolce & Gabbana stands for in my eyes: Letting a woman glow and look as magnificient as she is, they make her feel confident and respected by others at the same time.
