Photo Flash: Dolce&Gabbana Unveils SUMMER WOMAN 2014 Collection
In Milan on 22nd September 2013, Dolce&Gabbana presented its SUMMER WOMAN 2014 collection. Scroll down for photos from the show!
The inspiration is an imaginary journey to rediscover ancient Sicily, where history and myth come together.
The Greek temples and theatres, symbols of classic architectural perfection, are reinterpreted as if in a dream.
As if a traveler, having visited some of the marvelous landscapes of ancient Sicily, wanted to recreate those unique settings in his mind: that type of beauty, magic and enchantment can only be found in such a vision.
Only in an imaginary world can the unexpected and irrational intertwine with spontaneity and naturalness, while creativity, freed of any bonds with logic, becomes a synonym for folly.
Like in "Satyricon" by Fellini, the ancient temples and theatres are transposed into surreal visions that continue to nourish the eyes and soul of the traveler and provide images for dreams.
The unforeseen is interlaced with spontaneity, creativity with the absurd, and dreams with reality.
