Amazing photographs! And what an amazing set of the collection!
Can’t wait to see the full collection!

Lots of lovely little outfits there. It seems like it was an exciting show with the large variety of colours and prints. Inspirational, but not unattainable. I like it!

To me, they are the leaders in the whole world, and a personal sourcer of eternal inspiration.

The very first couture dress I ever bought was a Dolce & Gabbana body-hugging LBD from their store in Paris. 7 years later, it (somehow) still fits, and makes me feel elegant, svelte, and confident. The beauty of this brand is that they know women’s bodies as well as they know haute couture.
Loving how you showed movement in that first picture, too. Cheers!

As usual, I’m stoned by their work even of there is some piece I’m not in love.
September 24, 2012 at 3:40 pm
The prints are somptuous, the colors deep and rich and the head scarves add a nostalgic note to the ensemble. ( the 2nd photo !!)
As for the D&G adds, they are pieces of art with the mesmerizing Monica Bellucci.
Awesome Photos and Style

A natural and beautiful vulnerability is portrayed in photo 1. A look…within a look… within a look! I get the sense of what it’s like to have x-ray vision.

OMG! My old bloomer-style gym uniform is back in style. Only this time it’s two-pieced with stripes.
September 24, 2012 at 3:48 pm
Gorgeous colors, patterns, and silhouettes! I love the “floating” designs combined with the boldness of the colors and prints (No. 4). Bravo!

The first thing I notice before my eyes even settle on the shapes and cut of the clothing are the colors, which to me feel very Dali. It’s a carried-away-fantasy spring of gorgeous, rich, melting-hot colors and landscapes/settings in which to wear the clothes.
Where can you see them being worn? What feeling do they bring for you?
September 24, 2012 at 7:02 pm
Hi Alyssa, I was thinking exactly the same thing. The colours are very Dali and its such a jubilant and uplifting collection. Obviously Stefano and Domenico intended it to be a collection reflecting their roots and heritage but seriously… these clothes are international. Every peice from the finale I can see being worn in every iconic beach city in the world from Surfer’s Paradise in Australia to Miami, California. I adored the rafia jackets and the applicaed embellishments. Everything that made up the show was incredible and for the most part wearable with something for everyone (stripes, prints, relaxed shapes, embellishment), VIVA DOLCE&GABBANA!

I agree! Absolutely beautiful! So far the best show encapsulating spring and summer.

What a superb collection!
I loved every bit of it, but specially how colourful it was.
It’s wonderful the way they re-interpret the Italian culture and know exactly how to modernize it and show it without necesarily been too obvious.
September 24, 2012 at 4:21 pm
I love the stripes!
a real spring/summer collection, amazing outfits and lovely shoes. the first picture is just wonderful – cant’t look enough.

The last few collections for Dolce & Gabbana have focused a lot on their Sicilian heritage, which I share. These beautiful prints really blew me away, especially the ones with the medieval knights. They are illustrations of the Opera dei Pupi, the traditional Sicilian marionette theater. The stories are mostly about knights of the Crusades, enacted by wooden marionettes a good meter tall and dressed in highly detailed armor. They duel, they behead Moors, they make love — the stories are wildly imaginative and all acted out with puppets.
Those lush prints really capture the richness of the tradition. Here’s a video of some puppets in action: http://youtu.be/VSvZTrBhHaM

“they behead Moors” …
um, I’m sorry… what??
September 24, 2012 at 8:39 pm
These are really pretty! For the first two, though, lovely as they are, I immediately thought “The King and I,” where the ladies are re-enacting Uncle Tom’s Cabin for the British guests. That’s all I can see. Still really fun though!
September 24, 2012 at 8:58 pm
What lovely silhouettes! D&G isn’t usually one of my favourites, but I’ve been loving their collections lately. Italy in the ’60s! So classic and glamorous :)

so so so pretty!

Wow! These are hot outfits! Was so much impressed with the second and fifty design much more! The ladies there are really hot and beautiful. I love the dresses and I can’t wait to have one of the outfit!
September 25, 2012 at 1:52 am
So beautiful pics! They really looks so stunning. I actually desire such designs in my wardrobe; very brilliant indeed!
September 25, 2012 at 2:11 am
I love the designs. And the models are just but great!
September 25, 2012 at 2:14 am
Lovely collection! I love every bit of this…

Dolce & Gabbana did one of the best shows of this fashion week… It’s one of the rare shows when you feel the urge to wear all of the outfits, the atmosphere and decoration gave a big boost to the whole show, hence, it looked perfect
September 25, 2012 at 8:12 am
I love that first photo – the sense of fluidity and movement. Stunning!
September 25, 2012 at 8:31 am
Thanks for this pictures! Amazing!
September 25, 2012 at 8:37 am
This makes me happy..
Combines perfect with my brownie, tea and book haha.
Actually the collection looks quite old dutch, have you noticed?
September 25, 2012 at 12:06 pm
Nice pictures and the colors.I hope the summer is coming soon………….

This collection especially stands out because it does not succumb to ridiculous experimentalism to attain notability. This collection is great because it’s REALISTIC.
September 26, 2012 at 3:13 am
It’s true D&G have become the leaders of Milan fashion…
September 26, 2012 at 5:10 am
AMAZING collection! Thank you for the pictures!

September 26, 2012 at 1:24 pm
And not a single mention of the racist imagery. I’m very disappointed.
September 27, 2012 at 10:52 pm
Laura, I agree with you! All these comments about how “beautiful” the cultural images are – Dolce & Gabbana are making money out of glamourising “mammy” images and the plantation existence of black women’s lives. How is this better than John Galliano’s outburst a few years ago?
September 26, 2012 at 10:39 pm
That second dress is absolutely OUTSTANDING. I would seriously consider selling my left arm for it.
September 28, 2012 at 11:07 am
Love all of the dresses I’ve seen here but would gladly be buried in dress No 2. That print is amazing.
October 1, 2012 at 5:43 am
First photo is simply amazing. Love this collection, beautifully captured.
October 2, 2012 at 5:29 pm
Beautiful prints and patterns!

I’ve never been a fan of D&G but I kind of like this collection! It reminds me Ballet Russ in a good way!!!!

la sfilata p-e/2013 di dolce&gabbana è un inno alla sicilia, all’italia, alla bellezza della nostra cultura. Geniale e molto decorativi gli abiti dedicati ai carretti siciliani, ironici quelli dedicati alle ‘crinoline…..

Beautiful show! Colourful and totally connected to Spring colours !
