Amore d'Italia , Dolce & Gabbana

Just as promised, today I will be stepping out on the beautiful road of design, inspiration and evolution of fashion by presenting you, one of my very own favourites, Dolce & Gabbana.

The fashion house was founded by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana and showed their first women's collection in 1985 in Milan. After numerous collections, awards and successes Dolce & Gabbana brand is now known internationally and desired by, well, I could easily say every woman that is at least interested in fashion.

 Inspired by the Italian culture and Baroque, going from cinema and music to religion and Domenico's Sicilian roots, designers offer a variety of clothing contrasting themes and luxury.

The group of models strutting down the runway at their show all dressed in that femme fatale red colour and the most famous "Sicilian dress" are the things that celebrate both extravagance and simplicity.

The cinched in at the waist flowing dresses with flared sleeves, or simple shift dresses all have a touch of Sicily, big regal like earrings and crowns, vintage golds and furs, sultry lace and feminine flower print and colours.

For the Autumn/Winter 2013, designer duo draws inspiration from Catholic frescoes and Roman royalty while the Spring/Summer 2014 collection exudes with luxurious, ancient coins and Italian ruins motifs appearing on the clothes.

 But my absolute favourite must be the pure romanticism with red accents and big colourful  earrings that they presented in the S/S13.  

 From the way I see it, for all of you romantic souls like myself, this is a perfect way to put it out there and draw inspiration from the things and places that you love and people you're with. Just like Dolce and Gabbana do!
