Dolce & Gabbana | Spring/Summer 2014 | Golden Sicilian Godesses | MFW

From Milam to Sicily to Greece | A romantic reference to ancient mythology
Of Gods and Goddesses, this collection was a clear sequel to the men’s SS14 collection which was also inspired by Sicilian-Greek Mythology; they turned this into a beautiful almond blossom garden for their woman. Ethereal, romantic and confident, with extraordinary beauty and charm. 

At the Metropol, the runway had almond trees on the backdrop and when the first model emerged, the temples of ancient Greece, Sicily and Roman ruins were there again printed on precious materials of silk and linen. Coins were everywhere, even sown one by one next each other sending the message, of protection -  an armour. The delicate details once again just mesmerise you, and Domenico Dolce’s impeccable tailoring is evident. It was a passionate and faultless collection, perfect as a ballerina, with Tchaikovsky's "Valzer Dei Fiori" in the background. The collection charmed you in and spun you around. It was a golden garden affair with the staple silhouettes, colours and materials of Dolce & Gabbana. 

They took their woman on a trip, more so, she took us on a trip from cold Milan in March to Cannes with her flats and mini day dresses, and the final destination of Sicily and Greece at the end of summer, there was definitely something for every woman.
Almond blossoms embroided on organza, tunics with large sleeves, the Dolce & Gabbana classic seductive black bodycon dress, the suit, red, gold..  Digitally printed temples on dresses with buttons straight down the back, coloured fur, white polka dots on black and black polka dots on red, golden belts with big coins, sown together and tight round the waist, everything channelled a goddess, earrings, Roman sandals with golden details, decadent high wedges, pointed flats and sandals with Greek column heels – the shoe collection was immaculate. The bags - a new black version of the Dolce bag and the new coin bags, not a little pocket for coins but a big golden handheld coin bag - decandence. 
No crowns this time but delicate head bands with flowers, and jewellery.






I don't know what Dolce & Gabbana do to me, but it transports me somewhere in their world, and literally immerses me inside. I get so emotionally trapped, and never want to leave. Beauty is here, from Greece to Sicily to Milan, with Dolce & Gabbana there is a goddess in all of us.
