The Dolce&Gabbana Boutiques in Milan are heavily decorated for seasonal cheer for a homely and Christmassy atmosphere. The items on display merge seamlessly with the concepts and looks.
Tiny purses covered with sequins or intricate golden baroque embroidery look like Christmas baubles themselves.
Seamlessly and somewhat conspicuously placed amongst dried fruit, candy and ornate serve wear you can spot equally delicious looking gold embroidered mini Sicilies or sequined Charles mini bags.
In seasonal colours like red and gold and silver, these pretty accessories can change a look for a festive party or become an object of desire to wrap under the Christmas tree.
Opulent red velvet embroidered Mary Janes with matching mini Sicily handbags almost audaciously lie on a gold baroque table, tempting you and seducing you.
On a more austere sense the black versions, and the very Sicilian widow appropriate lace gloves are a sombre and restrained incarnation of the sensual red display.
