Looking Forward to Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring/Summer Line!

One of the many things that I am looking forward to in 2013 is  the D&G Spring/Summer Collection! As you know, we love traditional artisanal techniques and craft. This line is a beautiful collaboration of just that. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are passionate about preserving Italy’s endangered artisanal craft as well as different regions.  Their new collection has a strong Sicilian influence.  The flower motifs in the embroidery depict Sicilian pottery and the meticulously aligned prints depict Italian puppets.  The stripes represent painted deck-chair stripes.  There is use of raffia, floral appliqué, macramé, and crochet that is all handcrafted by artisans.  Here are a few of my favorites from the collection!
