Dolce & Gabbana F/W 2014-15 HC: Fantasy Island on Capri

Welcome to Southern Italy! In an exquisite fashion event, Dolce & Gabbana captured the spirit of the Mediterranean in a flurry of full skirts, tiny waists, bold patterns, intricate jewelry, lush fur and two-piece swimsuits. The event was joyous and fun with a casual glamour that Domenico claimed was last seen in the era of Liz Taylor, Princess Soraya of Iran, the Duchess of Windsor and Jackie Kennedy in the high tide of Capri chic. With the Fifties song 'Volare' as the inevitable accompaniment, the show seemed both extravagant and intimate. 
The show started with grand opera - a fitting backdrop to an important project for the design duo. They have been taking their private collections around Italy from Sicily, where Domenico has his roots, to Venice and now Capri.
"It's about the beauty of Italy - we don't really have Alta Moda here - we wanted to do something for our country," said an emotional Stefano, as he talked through the collection in an improvised dressing room overlooking the choppy water.
There were details of raised floral embroidery, sandals with clusters of beaded flowers, a gilded crown that might have been a Neapolitan treasure and a dress with the naïve hand-painting of a map of the Amalfi coast.
