“Dolce & Gabbana’s Sicilian inspired spring/summer 15 collection, where flamboyant means majestic and loud means emotional.” Source
This years showing was distinctly Dolce and Gabbana with the brand channeling the ceremony and drama of the historical Spanish influence in Italy.With silk jackets featuring heavy black embroidery, swirls of piping and ribbon, paired with cropped trousers, these were the elaborate touches that formed the backbone of the collection.
Paying tribute to the famous costume of the matador, the traditional gold was swapped for darker jewel tones. The rest of the collection featured three-piece suits, sporty vests and oversized silk t-shirts screen printed with charging bulls, as well as different coloured combination polka dots – a nod to the traditional Flamenco dresses – which covered suits and t-shirts.

Editor’s note: At first sight, the collection seemed typical Dolce&Gabbana style as they followed through with their design aesthetic, once again not trying anything too out of the box. The prints and fabric salvaged what would otherwise be a boring collection silhouette-wise.
From the red colour to appliqué that reminds us of Chinese lanterns, one cannot help but wonder if this is an easy attempt by the designers to pander the Chinese market for next year’s Lunar New Year. Their humongous lawyer cost for that tax evasion lawsuit needs to get paid somehow.
Pssst, Dolce. The Lunar New Year is February 19, 2015. Hope this will be in stores before then.
