As if the selfie showdown back in September wasn't enough, Dolce & Gabbana upped its viral factor with its Carretto Siciliano print collection. The placemats may be reserved as gifts for Martha Stewarts and Monicas, but there are other household items and holiday trinkets similarly doused in bright colours and layered motifs. In short, this capsule collection arguably clamours even more attention than its spring/summer 2016 counterpart.
The collection owes its rich prints to ancient Sicilian traditions and Italian folkfolre: A marionette theatre caricature filled with medieval knights and dames, traditional puppets, carretto and perhaps the most identifiable, Sicilian wheels. As much as they are great buys as they are gifts, pick from a selection of notebooks, picture frames, jewellery boxes, scented candles and adorable Christmas baubles. Get the set of printed cards and envelopes for last minute Christmas greetings that'll out-stage any competitors — if they'd even try.
