Inspired by the intricate blue and white majolica tiles of Sicily, Dolce & Gabbana reinterpret it for the perfect pre-fall collection

In Mediterranean culture, majolica is used to depict scenes of abundance, and is prized for its luster and intricate patterns. Sicily has always held a special place in Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana's hearts and the duo have turned their creative eye to this particular art form for their pre-fall collection.

Keeping to a palette of blues and whites, the collection consists of summery accessories such as espadrilles, bejewelled sandals and bags. In addition, two iconic bags of the fashion house have also been given the majolica treatment: The Sicily and The Dolce. So when summer comes around, give those minimalist accessories a rest (normcore is so 2014) and switch it up with these refined standouts instead.

The Dolce & Gabbana Maiolica collection is available in stores now
