Lace is a Dolce&Gabbana classic. A bastion of the brand’s heritage and style, and one of the factors which have earned Dolce&Gabbana so many loyal fans through the years.
Intricate patterns, reminiscent of ages past are a popular choice amongst women and a well explored stylistic choice by Dolce&Gabbana. The luxurious and sometimes racy qualities of lace make a lady feel sexy but not vulgar, due to the fabric’s links to tradition. Dolce&Gabbana have masterfully imbued these qualities on many items of their collections- from dresses to accessories.
Bianca Balti wears a dress which embodies all the qualities which seduce when it comes to Dolce&Gabbana’s use of lace. The generous portion of bare skin and the transparency of the lace are sexy, yet the silhouette and girlie skirt make this dress a stylish oxymoron. The crochet raffia hat with crochet flower applications, which can largely be considered a cousin of the lace family, .are the perfect piece to place atop this look. And for a textured yet less invasive final touch, these tulle peeptoe booties tie the outfit together.
Ah lacey accessories are some of those ideas that have made Dolce&Gabbana the new masters of this ancient craft. Whether its lace socks inside sandals, tulle booties, or raffia crochet bags lace is always present. Within that iconic style of utilising well known and well loved materials in innovative ways, the new weaved patent Dolce Bag is a special addition.
For an all over lace look- an empire line scalloped lace dress is cutesy and sexy. The matching mini bolero/caplet is as sweet as it is pretty. Accessorise with a lace Dolce Bag and satin purple sandals to complete this 2012 bon ton look.
Lace for Dolce&Gabbana is a special material which allows the designers to display and challenge their abilities. Precious macramé transformed into sinuous dresses and suits are a Dolce&Gabbana must have.
