Dolce & Gabbana F/W 2014-15. Majolica: From Pottery to Fashion

I was inspired by these lovely Majolica print dresses from Dolce & Gabbana for 
Fall/Winter 2014-15 inspired on the pottery from Sicily. 
Majolica is one of the first exports of luxury items made in Italy, with these intricately glazed ceramics taking pride of place at courts of all of Europe in the Renaissance. It is said Queen Elizabeth I was a huge fan of the glazing and ordered many samples to be made for her in Italy during her reign.
Majolica has continued to attract art lovers, and today fashion lovers since its inception, and remains a thriving art in Sicily. The coloured tiles, pots and vases decorate homes, and even roads (link scalinata caltagirone) in the picturesque town of Sicily.
You can match the majolica dresses with the Dolce & Gabbana Majolica accessories, see also my other blog about Majolica accessories later on. The abundance of majolica has long been an inspiration of Dolce & Gabbana who transpose the intricate decorations and the magnificent colours onto fabric for unique summery outfits.
