La mamma è sempre la mamma.
Dolce & Gabbana took this Italian motto very seriously by giving their Fall/Winter 2016 collection a sweet, motherly twist.
After letting us wonder through enchanted woods (f/w 2015) and Spanish scenarios (s/s 2015) we couldn’t expect anything but a return to the so loved Bel Paese, to which the historical fashion duo did an elegant homage with the new theme titled Viva La Mamma.
Down the catwalk we saw the usual detailed, embroidered, masterpiece-like creations adorned with children-made dedications inspired by the scribbles of Domenico’s nieces, colourful prints, precious applications and, of course, lovely toddlers and babies in little matching outfits. Iconic the appearance of a pregnant, bright-smiling and definitely gorgeous Bianca Balti.
The fils rouge of this year’s collection are black, pastel colours, bon-ton and geometric cuts, see-through materials, statement accessories (interesting the presence of bold headphones) and an overall cozy fitting. Roses mark almost every piece, as a tribute to the scent of the red lipstick Stefano’s mother used to wear.
The show resulted as a massive thank you to all the mothers of the globe, even the most modern ones – those who manage to keep a career, grow their children and be independent, showing the world that women can actually make it.
