I am blown away with the new Spring 2013 collection of Dolce & Gabbana. It is colourful, dynamic and whimsical when I first saw it. But when I look at the collection more throughly, I’m amazed with the technique and the material that they use. The collection is whimsical yet still look elegant.
To me, it is the decorative technique that make the pieces bold and fun to look at. The used bent cane to create corset and sculptured gown that are beautifully made. Many of them mixed with what looked like painted deck-chair stripes, to dresses trimmed with raffia. One or two of the hand-woven straw corsets deliberately resembled bread baskets.
