“There was mood of opulence in Milan on Sunday, as fashion powerhouse Dolce & Gabbana showcased its autumn/winter “baroque romanticism” collection. Candelabra chandeliers covered in roses and a gilt-framed mirror behind the runway set the scene for stunning golden embroideries, delicate lace dresses, capes of various proportions, rich velvets, and chintzy tapestry-style patterns.
The inspiration was “the tradition of Sicilian baroque”. Translation: A Master Class in Sicilian Chic. The clothes were the absolute top-end of the luxury market with intricate workmanship and expensive detailing. The gold embroidery on capes, coats, skirts and boots was designed to “recall baroque mirrors and frames”. Prints of angels and cherubs and patterns inspired by “dining room tapestries” also featured.”
