Get dressed for Summer 2011 by Dolce and Gabbana

Dolce & Gabbana is one of my favorite luxury brand. Their designers, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have been my favorite since the early 2000's. Although I do not own anything from their label, (yet) I adore their design philosophy and how they had taken Italian tailoring and fused it with modern sensibility for both the Men and the Women collection. Allow me to share their Summer 2011 shows which I got from youtube. And if you are a fan of their much more casual sensibilities, you can also check out the D&G videos on their channel.

Let's start with their Men collection which I blogged about last July. (see it here.) This is where they had celebrated their 20 wonderful years in men's fashion. 

This is the first part of the fashion show which features around 90+ looks. Part 2 is available on this link and in youtube. Enjoy!

And now for their Women collection uploaded on youtube yesterday. In their own words, "SICILIAN SENSUALITY.The tailoring tradition of the collection is developed with the usage of bed linens, bedspreads, towels and tablecloths. Chiffon and stretch chiffon, brocade, charming stretch, jersey lace, macramé, extra light linen and linen organza, silk, poplin, muslin and crochet. Predominance of white dresses with a touch of black and influx of leopard print and flowers. The need and desire to slow down from the hectic rhythm of life thus taking back one's own time. The whole collection turns around the concepts of a more relaxed and sensual kind of elegance and tradition, that characterize the typical
trousseau of Southern Italy."

Mist of the looks featured are in white except for a few blacks and prints. There were crochet techniques in most of looks and although some are sheer, it was a predominantly wearable collection. Amazing video below. Enjoy!

See yah later!
