Dolce&Gabbana’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection is a tribute to Sicily.
The Italian summer destination which is very close to the designer’s heart was the source of the mood for this fun, fabulous and feminine offering.
The collection was presented as a physical show as part of Milan fashion week on 23rd September 2020 at Metropol, Milan.
Titled “Patchwork di Sicilia” the collection narrates a story of cultures with a mix of fabrics, atmospheres, colours, different qualities of brocades, poplin, georgette and chiffon inspired by Sicily’s diverse cultures.
Fatto a Mano as well as “Sustainability” are two key themes in this collection through the handcrafting, reinterpreting and creating new unique pieces through sewing together different iconic fabrics, prints and designs.
“Patchwork di Sicilia” is reminiscent of Dolce&Gabbana’s 1993 collection which was inspired by the ‘70s with a new, fresh vision with a focus on style not just fashion.
The collection is a cultural approach of blending different cultures to create “one of a kind” pieces.
Pieces were relaxed and floaty in style with real wearability to them. The colour palette, in true D&G style, was bolt and bright, with various styles and prints coming together to create a unique blend of materials, cuts and colours.
