Dolce & Gabbana’s spring/summer 2014 collection was a study in decadence and splendor. Designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana delved into their Sicilian past, reverted to the classics, and collected memories of their journeys to create a spectacular collection that straddled the line between real and surreal.
The collection was inspired by souvenirs from their travels, Federico Fellini’s film Satyricon, Sofia Loren’s “joie de vivre,” and the ancient ruins of Greece. It showed off the duo’s superb attention to detail and excellent workmanship. Each piece was meticulously crafted and encapsulated the brand’s trademark Sicilian grandeur.

Almond blossom trees served as the backdrop for the runway and provided a mystical quality to the show. The models dazzled in luxurious pieces that featured gold details, jeweled embellishments, gorgeous fabrics, hand-painted flowers, faceted crystals, lacquered silk, beautiful appliques, and an abundance of gold coins.
For the finale, the modern-day goddesses glimmered and shimmered in gold as they collectively sashayed down the runway to mark the end of the show.
