If there is a crowning of sovereign monarchy in the world of fashion, Italian luxury house of Dolce & Gabbana will be raising an assembly of fashion royalties. Putting on your tiaras and your fuchsia silk robes, let’s take a modern princess’s stride down the parade in the Spring Summer 2014 Filigree eyewear collection. With the soundtrack of Lorde’s ‘Royals’ playing at the background, it’s hard not to imagine yourself in the runway’s bejeweled gold filigree bustier just to complete the look. But then again, no fashion police will stop you if you can afford one.
Drawing inspiration from ancient gold-making techniques, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana brought tradition and romanticism from the Sicilian heritage. Using antique gold filigree as the base, the frame is created as skilled artisans apply tiny and fragile bouquet of flowers manually. From the late Isabella Blow, Anna Dello Russo to pop icon Madonna, any trend-forward fashionista would love to be spotted with such a lightweight, timeless and bold creation.
Following the similar elegant aesthetic, the Golden Leaves collection celebrates wearability with a lavish burst of brilliance. Sensual, feminine, glamourous and like gold leaves floating in a crystal frame, the passion for Sicilian glittering gold brocade is captured at its understated form. Cementing the richness of historical references, radically there is nothing less we can expect from Dolce & Gabbana, season after season.
