Inspiration: The captivating world of theater in its overall aspect, from the dramatic costumes to the lavish gowns worn by the ladies up to the elements of the theater structure itself.
The Dolce&Gabbana Women’s Collection for Fall Winter 2009-2010 portrays the most memorable and important operas, taking the artistic differences given by the original eras of release, and celebrates the iconic Maria Callas for her musical shows featuring the grace printed T-shirts, and the recorded Bellini’s Norma at the Metropol in 1954 where the D&G Show takes place.
The Styles are very delicate and superior. Brocade, upholstery and capitonné velvet bustier dresses with internal petticoats, covered with precious stones. Duchesse silk gowns with trompe-l’oeil effect prints. Bustiers were made of golden passamenterie ropes to wear with skinny jeans. Velvet coats and dresses with tapestry prints. Tapestry-printed chiffon blouses and jewel brooches tmatch with tights.
Fabrics and materials used are brocades, smooth velvets, matelassé velvets, upholstery velvet encrusted with glitters and stones, silk, mink, printed horse skin, chiffon, printed cashmere, denim adorned with stones and precious passamenterie details, tulle, grosgrain ribbons.
The season’s colors are almost black, burgundy, blue, mélange grey, ochre and gold.
When I see these hippie models wearing chic dresses I remember my childhood and my mother reading fairytales to me. My imaginative mind pictured lovely queens and princesses wearing pretty gowns similar to the ones we see on models of Dolce and Gabbana Women’s Collection for Fall/Winter 2009-2010 toting Dolce & Gabbana handbags.
