Dolce & Gabbana FW2013

The Milan Fashion week has passed. My favourite collection was Dolce&Gabbana one.
Dolce & Gabbana is an Italian luxury industry fashion house. The company was started by Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana in Milan, Italy.

So, let's see what this collection was about.

1.With opulence and Italian craftsmanship at the collection’s centre, embroidery was a main theme in the collection. The intricate gold thread, applications, pearls, and waxed silk fashioned into flowers were exquisite.
2. The romantic element of the collection was embodied in the needlepoint roses. Applied on lace and chiffon, this ancient craft which decorated parlours and grand halls was masterfully transformed in the FW13 collection.

3. In a collection which looked at the craftsmanship traditions of the past, Dolce&Gabbana found a space for the craftsmanship of today. A portion of the collection consisted on chiffon and satin, washed or painted and then laser cut to create patterns and transparencies a kin to lace.
4. As with the men’s collection, for FW13 Dolce&Gabbana have introduced a well loved yet sometimes forgotten type of outerwear: the cape. Whether made of fur, astrakhan, lace or embroidered felt, it’s the real must have item for the upcoming winter.
5. The baroque period saw a furthering of the Renaissance habit of displaying one’s wealth throw the intricate decorations of one’s abodes. Grand palaces, villas and public buildings were adorned with frescos, plasterwork as well as lavish furnishings. For the FW13 collection, Dolce&Gabbana took inspiration from these decors and centred a portion of the collection on delicate chiffon dresses printed with flower still life and cherubs- the 18th Century artists’ favourite subjects
6. The faithful Dolce&Gabbana client was not forgotten on the runway. The typical and well loved Dolce&Gabbana silhouettes and iconic items, the suit, the bodycon dress were revisited for FW13.
 Let's see the whole collection:
