Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2008 Runway Show DONNA
The collection is a tribute to contemporary art and its endless experimentation with materials, colours and ideas; specifically referring to the Gramercy Park New York, where cultural influences merge together and create a visual explosion. The style that inspires this type of art is romantic, sweet and feminine, but at the same time sensual and seductive.
Characterized by endless research of fabrics, like an artist explores the use of new textures, to make his paintings unique. Dresses created with layers of fabrics, like tulle, organza and silk net. Hems of dresses are unfinished, similar to a painters’ canvas taken from its frame. Voluminous dresses of precious Venetian brocade made like works of art. Skirts, short and long painters smocks, flared pants that can be worn with flat shoes. Knitwear made with layers of fabrics like silk net.
Delicate and geometric.
Handpainted silk shantung has a similar effect to a painters stretched canvas. Silk, net silk, organza, tulle, taffeta, Venetian brocade, painted Mikado.
Pale: ecru, pearl, grey, beige and rose. Strong: multi coloured mix and match.
Several sizes of bags in crocodile, python and Venetian brocade, solid and patchwork; handles are typical of luggage. Flat shoes. Lace-up shoes, with chunky or curved cone heels. Crocodile or brocade belts.
