MFW AW13 Dolce&Gabbana

Taking inspiration from the Catholic Church, more specifically the golden mosaics of Sicily’s Cathedral of Monreale, the AW13 Dolce&Gabbana collection was as opulent as ever. With gold as the reigning colour throughout – from the crowns to the embroidery to the intricate prints – it was a collection that made you want to stop and look closely, for the beauty was in the detail. Complex embellishment across all of the eveningwear (designed to look like religious figures), an interlude of menswear inspired grey blocks and lace in myriad forms the Dolce woman next season is not for the light-hearted. Ending on an army of red gowned models who paraded down the catwalk in unison, the designers gave us a romanticised view of the this religious outlet.
