This collection totally blew me away. Now that the sun’s started to make an appearance here in London I have started hatching plans for day trips to the countryside and fully intend making the most of my National Trust membership by visiting beautiful old stately houses and gardens this summer.
What does any of this have to do with Dolce and Gabanna? Well, this stunning collection just screams regal heritage. The cherubs, roses, tapestry, tiaras and gold buttons evoke images of grand stately homes and English country gardens. D&G presented good old fashioned decadence and opulence in the form of Rubens paintings, luxurious gold gilting and ott tapestries. This indulgence and the references to the past really made this collection stand out after seeing a lot of minimalism on catwalks over the past few seasons.
