“Sicily, the island that has always been the source of inspiration for Dolce&Gabbana, is told through the contrasts that render it unique.
The new Women’s Collection tells of a story of a union, of pieces created by artisans’ hands, with different colours, forms and fabrics joined together in a combination of patchworks: a celebration of Fatto a Mano”. Dolce & Gabbana
The SS21 collection named ‘Patchwork of Sicily’ is a tribute to the Sicily, where Domenico Dolce was born and raised, by patchworking single garments from elements belonging to each cultural influence, where the island has a multicultural history from the Spaniards to the Arabs and the Normans.
“Given our long experience being inspired by Sicily, we wanted to tell of all that you can find on an island like this, the different cultures that dominated, from the Spanish to the Arabs to the Normans, We’ve treasured everything that they have brought to us and we put it all together,” Dolce & Gabbana
Dolce & Gabbana wanted to capture the spirit of Italian artistry on the Metropol runway with “fatto a mano,” or handmade craftsmanship Within each patchwork piece in 90looks was used similar patchworking techniques in the 1993 show which was inspired by the bohemian 1970s.
The collection heavily plucked details from the ’70s and 90s collections, but today’s presentation felt refreshingly modern and in more contemporary cuts.
