Welcome to my Friday Fashion.
Ah Italy in the 1950s !!! The II World War was beyond memory I was told, everything was new or being rebuilt, everything was flourishing and energy was high. Fashion was booming again and so was tourism.
Dolce & Gabbana immortalized most of the beautiful Italian cities’ icons and architectural details on dresses, pants and shirts of its collection Summer 2016. The collection is so “Dolce” and not only because it is an ode to Italy’s grandeur. Dolce & Gabbana has thought of something for every woman: A line skirts, flowing dresses, stripes, transparencies, short pants covered with long veils, hand embroiders, crochet flowers and incrustations made with mirrors, pom-pom, ribbons and fruit applied on most of the pieces.
The colors are vivid, bright and vibrant just like Italy is. Dolce & Gabbana’s followers don’t like black and I am so happy…., a ton of colored decorations adorn those few black items they produced.
The Summer 2016 collection celebrates the healthy lifestyle of Italy, the flavorful lemons of Amalfi from which we make limoncello, the fragrant flowers of the Italian Riviera, the striped awnings of fruttivendolo (fruit vendor store), Sicilian colors of the typical wedding carriage, the breathtaking panoramas of the lake districts and seaside coast line. The models took real selfies while walking on the runway, something that was never done before and just like the collection was very refreshing and spirited. Enjoy these 11 minutes of nothing by colors.
