The inspiration for the new Dolce & Gabbana collection for fall/winter 2013-14 comes from their beloved Sicily, especially from the basilic in Monreale, which is filled with Byzantine mosaic.
The show was the most important event in Milan. The last collections were criticized because of its repetitiveness, despite the fact that their collections are and were very beautiful! This time Stefano and Domenico moved us to the Byzantine empire from the 5th century.
What they saw (Domenico and Stefano) in Monreale cathedral they transferred it on fabrics. The models walked through the runaway wearing a figures of saints on their clothes, gold tiaras and arresting accessories (shoes, jewellery or bags). The concept was brilliant! You can explain it by saying: what belongs to the national treasure, (like remains after Byzantine culture), it will be always admired.
The collection speaks for itself! Just look at the photos! I love the accessories, the red lace dresses embroidered with little stones and complemented with gold jewellery. The mosaic dress will be wanted by every woman. Apart from gold and red, Dolce & Gabbana showed us elegant costumes and coats in grey and black colours. Admire! ;)
