I’m back! Apartment’s almost ready (I’ll post pics as soon as I’m completely done), internet is back on, and I am here with a new post. For months I have been wanting to write about this collection and I also have been mentioning to you in previous posts that I was going to do so. So here I go:
Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring/Summer 2011 RTW collection
Stellar, flawless, ethereal, femenine, clean… I could go on and on with adjectives that can describe the italian duo’s collection for the season. Pure perfection! In their very own Sicilan style, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s creations were showcased down the runway by some of fashion’s biggest names right now, including brazilian bombshells, Iza Goulart and Alessandra Ambrosio. Long flowing garments, baby-doll dresses, voluminous skirts, all made of white embroidered lace and sheer fabrics. Underneath, old school bras and panties. A collection where white had the leading role, and floral print, leopard and black made a guest appearance. A very pure collection, but always celebrating female sensuality and the mediterranean woman. Overall, I can say they hit the ball out of the ball park!
GET THE LOOK FOR LESS
- All white: the collection showed also leopard and black but for today’s look we will be focusing on this color. It is really important when selecting the garments (if going for separates instead of a dress) that the white hues are similar. Don’t pair up crisp white with off-white. And do not mistake a cream or eggshell with white.
- Lace: Select garments with embroidered lace, english embroidery, hand tatting, even some crochet can work.
- Sheer: No I am not telling you to show your thong, but go for lightweight fabrics, with a bit of transparence. Or where sheer is mixed with lace patchworks.
- Don’t go all tight on yourself, go for volume, movement, pleats!
