The Dolce&Gabbana Summer 2013 collection is inspired by the most profound “Sicilian Tradition”, that can be seen on the prints depicting the famous puppets of Sicilian street theaters, on the typical local barrows and peculiar wheels, on the Caltagirone head-shaped ceramic vases and dishes.
These elements are mixed with stripes that recall the beach umbrellas and sunbeds of local shores, thus creating the wardrobe for a hot summer. The exquisite handcraftmanship of the clothes made of straw, raffia crochet, embroideries of coral on straw, culminates with the creation of dresses, skirts and sculture-effect midollino bustiers inspired by the classic Sicilian baskets.
