Dolce & Gabbana SS15 – Spanish Influences in Sicily

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana for this season, investigated the Spanish influence between 1516 and 1713 in southern Italy, especially in Sicily. Their aim was to convey the Spanish influence in a non-conventional way, making it a classic of Dolce & Gabbana spin.

Structured matador jackets, decoration capes and tasselled ponchos were updated and given the signature D&G treatment with amounts of luxurious lace everywhere, grand floral needleworks and iconic religious references. The colours centred classically on black, white and red in a mix of splendid satins, silks and lace focusing on decadent floral and heart adornment.

Hair was dramatically centre-parted and slicked into a tight low bun decorated with with blood-red carnations, oversized gilded earrings and ornate crowns. Industry legend, makeup artist Pat McGrath transformed models into Latino-beauties with thick dark brows, bold flicked eyeliner and sultry wine-red lips.

The finale of the catwalk show, saw an army of Dolce girls marching in white bullfighter shirts and red satin high-waisted bloomers. This powerful parade was fitting to what story was trying to be told all along: simple shapes with intricate embroidery and elaborate embellishment. It was a fitting end to the show and to Milan Fashion Week.
