DOLCE & GABBANA
Unique and very Italian. The runway brings you into the Sicilian mode and the collection very tailor made reflects the perfect made in Italy. So many Sicilians, why? Because Sicily has had the fate of finding itself, over the centuries, as the link between the great Western culture and the temptations of the desert and the sun, between reason and magic, between the storms of feelings and the heat of passion. Sicily suffers from an excess of identity and I do not know whether this is good or bad. Wool or linen gauze layered with organza or veil.
Souvenir style prints reminiscent of Sicily and of traditional Sicilian barrows, “pupi” ( typical Sicilian puppets) and temples.White shirts with open collars.
Printed stripes on thick hem cloth or cotton inspired by the Sicilian beaches such as those of Taormina, Cefalù, Mondello and the Eolie islands.
The collection is also reminiscent of the world of sports with neoprene thermo – sealed pieces.

Surprisingly, just a hint of denim on the catwalk: denim details can be found on the collar of white shirts and accessories like bibs. The collection is also reminiscent of the world of sports with neoprene thermo – sealed pieces.
