Byzantine art served as inspiration

 for  the  a/w 2013  womenswear collection from

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana

(image from bbc.co.uk):

Of specific design reference

was the 12th century mosaics at the

Cathedral of Monreale, Sicily.

The Cathedral has the distinction of possessing the

most extensive representation

of mosaic art in Italy.

With the seasonal potential of

contracting the dreaded wintry day blues

the colour,    the glow,    the vibrancy

of these garments seem the perfect fashion antidote.

autumn/winter  2013

The Collection

lady-like.      bold.     iconoclastic.

(and at times, a bit cheeky)
