21 Oct 2015

The inspiration of the Dolce&Gabbana Women’s Fall 2016 collection was THE MOTHER (mamma in Italian).

The mother is the heart of the family and in this way Mr. Dolce and Mr. Gabbana had a very intimate, personal approach when creating this collection, because the image of the mother that inspired them comes from their own memories as children. The collection has a great amount of creativity (new shapes, embroideries, prints, collage) and it featured 89 looks (plus the finale). The... Read More

The clothes are experimental with a high degree of creativity that, instead of covering the body, must enhance it, expose and celebrate it. A great sartorial mastery based on well-thought and accurate anatomical rules by which every single curve is underlined, where necklines, rigorously asymmetrical,... Read More
