The president of Sicily, Rosario Crocetta, said: “As far as I am concerned Dolce&Gabbana are the best interpreters in Sicilian style. It is in their blood, and they do a lot for Sicily”.
The show was placed in the “Square of Shame” of Palermo, among the statues of the big 16th Century marble and Florentine fountain. It was super intense and overly romantic.
Sicilian history was at the centre of the designer duo research, as always. The total looks were 125: we spotted on the runway typical motifs from Sicilian folklore together with the French, Arabic and Spanish influence on Sicilian culture that was on the dresses, and materials like silk crepe and many others.
There was a series of pieces in delicate tones of pink and orange coral from Sciacca too, that’s the centre of the Sicilian jewellery. Shopping baskets decorated with jewels and full of herbs, oranges and bread were used as accessories to complete some looks. The closing four looks were totally inspired by the painter Sicilian carretto.
It was an unforgettable show.
Can’t wait to see what happens next!
