Dolce&Gabbana | Women's S/S 2012


he imaginary movie created to describe the Dolce&Gabbana Spring Summer 2012 collection is set up in a small town in the South of Italy, decorated for festivities. Everything recalls the typically Italian joyful spirit: from the distinctive illuminations that adorn every street and the fragrances and tastes of Mediterranean food, down to the crochet that embellishes tablecloths.

Tomatoes, aubergine, courgette, onions and hot pepper prints brighten up the classic sheath dresses or dresses cut at the waist and ruched, tops, shorts and deconstructed jackets. All clothes are made in organza or cotton, mixed with crochet in pastel colours such as light blue, peach, beige and nude.

The exuberant sensuality of the Italian culinary culture and of the traditions are also expressed in the accessories made of pasta and little tomatoes, onions and small Madonnas that decorate shoulder bags, earrings, necklaces and bracelets. On the other hand, bags and shoes are made of that typical intertwined plastic that recalls the chairs one can find at the bars in all the small towns in the South of Italy, where friends gather.

Come the night, the black brocade dresses and jackets are covered with shiny stones of the same colour, while the sparkling geometries of the illuminations that decorate the streets are recreated through embroideries made of multi-coloured crystals on lace dresses. For the finale, bodysuits embroidered with glittering multi-coloured stones that shine like fireworks.
