For Alta Moda, Dolce & Gabbana’s answer to couture, the destinations: TKTKT: are almost as glamorous as the clothes on display. This time around, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are marking summer, the return of la dolce vita, and their latest Alta Moda, Alta Sartoria, and Alta Gioielleria collections in a big way (albeit virtually). Via a site that went live today, the Italian house is showcasing all three collections. The site includes a video with an old-school slide show featuring snapshots of the Duomo in Milan and gondolas in Venice.
“Florence was the cradle of the Renaissance, of Italianness, of an ancient wisdom that has been handed down and continues to transfer its influence on contemporary culture and aesthetics,’ said the designers in a press release. “Bringing our work to the most iconic places of the city is a dream come true. Even more because we have been able to work closely with the artisans of the city, who preserve in their workshops an invaluable and timeless know-how.”
Though there was no celeb-filled front row (customers tuned in virtually via a private website created for the occasion), the duo still brought the glamour with a collection inspired by Italian razzle-dazzle and travel. Looking to everything from vintage postcards to inspire silk prints and trimming dramatic caftans and kimonos with no shortage of fur and feathers, it was a collection worthy of a Slim Aarons muse. “The event represents a strongly optimistic message from the fashion industry,” said Pitti Immagine CEO Rafaello Napoleone in a statement. “It is a signal that we are back up and running and ready to restart.”
