Dolce & Gabbana Show is a Mix of Tradition and Innovation, a True Celebration of Italian history
An important international parterre applauds the double parade of the high craftsmanship of the two creatives: Dolce & Gabbana.
Among the guests there is also the Russian ice-eyed dancer Polunin.
On December 7th, the day of Sant’Ambrogio, patron saint of the city and the opening day of the Scala, the doors of the new spaces of Corso Venezia, renovated the headquarters of the brand, were opened for the first time.
Located in the historic Palazzo Litta in Milan, this was the first time that the house has presented Alta Moda, for women, on the same runway as Alta Sartoria, for men, in a show that featured a staggering 200-plus looks.
Here are the three Graces of Raphael printed on faille skirt of dress with a corset. A faille moiré hood with reproduced painting by Titian. The allegory of Venus printed in a circular way. The inlaid mink fur with reproduced Giovanna Tornabuoni del Ghirlandario on the front and back polychrome marbles of the time.
Madonna dello Zingarello by Tiziano, the Madonna with the child by Botticelli, the Madonna del Belvedere by Raphael are some of the paintings that are reproduced on the unique outfits.
Theatrical, beautiful and a celebration of Italian history, this was a journey through the house’s undisputed technical know-how, but also a showcase of the designers’ undimmed passion.
