Since 2012 Dolce & Gabbana have presented their Alta Moda collection, the proudly Italian design duo’s answer to Couture, and every time it’s just as breathtakingly beautiful as the last. The decadent gowns, jewellery and accessories are designed with the lavish grandeur that evokes everything so quintessentially Dolce & Gabbana.
The collection itself is inspired by ‘Italian holidays, glamour and timeless elegance’ and it’s much apparent in the pieces. The large-scale colourful silk scarves adorned with motifs that look pretty postcards are the focal point of the collection and are worn as kaftans, dresses and kimonos. The designs are embellished with outré ostrich feathers and accessorised with bold oversized jewellery in bright precious stones. It’s wanderlust at its very finest; crystal-embellished robes and flowing gowns are paired with floral headpieces and possibly the largest sun hats anyone has ever seen. It’s your dream holiday wardrobe as you channel Sophia Loren and sip negroni’s on the Amalfi coast.
In lieu of a physical catwalk show, the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda collection presented digitally is everything you could have wished for and more. See below our favourite looks from the collection.
