Wear your heart on your sleeve this Valentine's Day with Dolce & Gabbana

San Valentino

Or at least, whimsically appliquéd in a riot of colours on luxe brocade and shimmery satin frocks

If there's a day best suited to slipping on a romantic confection in lush fabrics sprinkled with shimmer, the occasion where love is universally celebrated more than makes the cut. Whipping up a capsule collection brimming with good cheer and tender sentiments is Dolce & Gabbana, calling on delicate chiffon and georgette as a canvas to the bold declaration of love spelt out in sequins and faux gems. 

Dolce & Gabbana San Valentino capsule collection

Romantics looking for a good dose of whimsy will delight in the brocade and velvet A-line dresses adorned with sweet fuschia heart motifs, with the phrase San Valentino (Italian for Valentine's Day) splashed across. As a casual option to the embellished dresses, crepe de chine and silk muslin T-shirts take on fun-loving scribbles, and a side of accessories — the Von bag (a mini crossbody) and iPhone 6 covers — dusted from the same pool of shimmer complete the San Valentino collection. 

For gents unabashed to sartorially complement their loved ones, show affection by donning the graphic T-shirts or accessorising with themed phone covers and document cases.

The San Valentino collection is now available at Dolce & Gabbana boutiques worldwide.
