Baroque Romanticism by Dolce & Gabbana

Dolce & Gabbana set the stage for their fall show with chandeliers decorated in real flowers and vines along with an enormous gilded mirror at the end of the runway. It was undoubted lavish, but still nothing compared to their collection, which was dripping in gold.

Inspiration for the opulent collection with the titel "Baroque Romanticism" is Domenico Dolce's native Sicily with its baroque religious traditions. Some might say, it's kitsch, but for my slavic roots the colorful needlepoint florals and prints of cherubs are not unfamiliar at all and they also remind me of Frida Kahlo who was a great artist and a style icon on her own.
