Dolce & Gabbana Present Alta Moda In Lake Como

Dolce & Gabbana love to bring the drama. It doesn’t get more dramatic than Naomi Campbell, hands on hips in a larger than life feathered gown and headpiece sauntering around Lake Como at sunset. Dolce do the dream-come-true thing so well. That’s an Alta Moda show for you. Naturally, the inspiration was Alessandro Manzoni’s 19th century novel ‘The Betrothed’ set in Lake Como. The iconic Italian lurve story. “I would really like, in fact, to be born again in another two hundred years’ time,” Manzoni writes. It is, in fact almost 200 years since the book was released (1875) and so we are seeing The Betrothed reimagined, an exclusive Dolce & Gabbana wardrobe for Lucia and Renzo, the star crossed lovers. Life’s tough when the love is star crossed but oh so good in Dolce & Gabbana. Lucia’s wardrobe would be overflowing with tiered multi-printed gowns, a whole lot of baby pink and blue lace, feathers flouncing, florals, sequins, tassels and fabulous headdresses. The whole D&G situation that we know and love, elevated higher and higher into Italian fantasy land territory, a whirlwind of the most vivid colours in every which way and on the best lineup of Dolce ladies. Yes, Naomi, Helena Christensen, Ashley Graham, Eva Herzigova and Lady Kitty Spencer. The ultimate night in Italy with the ultimate Gabbana girls. Nails done, hair done, everything did. Oh they fancy.
