I can’t believe that I forgot to post up Dolce & Gabbana. This time the boys went for an almost all white collection. It may be white (and possibly for a wedding) and it may be spring, but Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana still keep it tailored. Paying for tribute to Sicilian trailoring (this time Sicilian white lace), they craft a beautiful glamorous collection that updates their fall collection into spring. There is plenty of white Sicilian lace with flowery silks and light tweed. What I love about Dolce & Gabbana is that they give me girly dressing without making it cute. It’s sophisticated, well-tailored, feminine, romantic, and exquisitely decorated. That bejeweled rhinestone work is astonishing.
Domenico and Stefano give me sensuality with romantic flair. It is their trademark. And is precisely what differentiates them from other Italian designers’ versions of sexy. Dolce & Gabbana does not overtly drip with sex appeal like Gucci/Versace/Roberto Cavalli; nor does it wittily flirt with femininity like Prada does. What they do do is exquisitely crafted clothes that are elegant and utterly feminine. Their lingerie would enchant both men and women alike. Dolce & Gabbana gives as they described last season “romance with great sex.”
