Dolce & Gabbana - Spring/Summer 2014
"The collection the designers sent out for spring was roughly part five (it’s hard to keep count) in their long-running serial about Sicily, Domenico Dolce’s place of birth. The thing about that island is that it’s full of archaeology, overlaid with layers and layers of history, religion, drama, and cinematic representation. Endless angles to dig into. This season they excavated the Greco-Roman aspect. Imagine a tour of the Greek ruins at Syracuse in springtime. The other part of the equation was the almond blossom embroidered in sprigs in the ultra-pretty side of the collection. 'It’s a dream of Sicily,' said Stefano Gabbana. 'Like, you go on holiday to Syracuse or Taormina, and you see the Greek theater, then you come home and dream about it.'"
