The wedding “trousseau”, the bottom drawer, was the inspiration here.
Last season we saw a troupe of Dolce figures in black, championing the house’s signature blazer and big knickers. This time, they reversed the aesthetic to show the pure white bride in lace embroidered full-length dresses, baby dolls and cami/shorts looks.
Sicilian sensuality – as always - was at the heart of this show and it began with stills of traditional Mediterranean scenes of Italians sewing, atmospheric vistas and Madonna’s campaign for the label.
It was punctuated with a few black looks of bustier and hot pants, classic long-sleeved dresses and skirt suits. A re-worked leopard print dresses featured in the ¾ length that is now so key for next season. But white was the message.
Going away outfits came with diamante stripes on v-neck dresses with ribbon-tie backs. “It makes me want to get married all over again” said ELLE fashion director Anne-Marie Curtis.
