La Dolce Vita – Dolce & Gabbana Couture by the Sea

The show was on the Italian resort isle of Capri in high summer.  The couture was true Dolce & Gabbana, with hand-painted ball gowns featuring the yellows and blues of the local majolica ceramics, along with luscious citrus fruits, the curved handles of ancient amphorae and juxtaposed with the regatta stripes of the sea. The models wore their hair in typical centre parts and were decorated with jewel encrusted gold crowns, it definitely looks as if their intention was to take you to another time and place.

Pure extravagance, but isn’t that the very nature of haute couture? I love it!
