Milan Fashion Week SS16: Dolce & Gabbana

Italia Is Love

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana takes us on a tour of Italy's best cities through printed postcards

The inspiration: Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have always been inspired by their Italian homeland. This time around was no different, but instead of just looking at the country itself, the design duo also paid tribute to Italy through the eyes of travellers. Cue: Postcard prints. 

The set: Guests were invited to take a stroll down a typical Italian street lined with fruit stands, souvenir shops, and café tables before the show. The fruit and vegetable shop was later incorporated into the collection through fruit embellished headphones and headbands.

Buro loves: All the pom pom accessories that decorated crochet bags, heels and gladiator sandals. 

Something you might have missed: Models stopped to take selfies while walking down the runway. These shots were then projected live onto screens hanging above the audience. By far the most interactive runway show we've seen to date.   

Something you might not have known: The Dolce & Gabbana SS16 show had a total of 90 looks and 70 finale dresses — each one printed with different postcard styles from various Italian cities. If only we could receive one of these postcard print shift dresses in the mail.
