Dolce & Gabbana
There were slippers shaped like Venice’s gondolas, colorful pom-pom totes that were the vision of a Sicilian summer, and hand-painted heels evocative of the ceramics found in Naples: spring’s accessories took us all for a whirlwind tour of Italy. In step with the sightseeing theme, this season’s new Dolce Box was a literal camera (bag). Tourist or not, you couldn’t help but fall for Dolce & Gabbana’s over-the-top ode for all things Italy.
Although the inspiration may have been post World War II Italy, Dolce & Gabbana is always steeped in the now. The headphones, #Italiaislove hashtags, and model selfies that turned Instagram sensations were proof of that.
As signature to the label as lingerie dressing, the iconic Dolce Box is updated this season in line with the tourist storyline. There’s a woven raffia version inspired by Sicily, another hand-painted with a patisserie theme, and most memorable of all, one rendered as a literal camera case.
The country’s most iconic landmarks trickled down to the accessories. There were slippers shaped like gondolas from Venice, hand-painted heels that nodded to the ceramics found in Naples, and shopper totes emblazoned with postcard prints in the same tune as the finale dresses.
