Dolce & Gabbana are masters in creating iconic objects of desire which transcend trends and even decades: the corset dress, the masculine look, the embroidered cocktail dress and the Miss Sicily hand bag, to name but a few. To that list is it safe to say that we can add this summer’s must have accessory: the Dolce Bag.
Dolce&Gabbana’s talent in creating timeless pieces coveted by women the world over is not only down to their imagination and creativity, but also the fact that the design duo seem to know how women think and what women want. For the Dolce Bag, it seems that Dolce&Gabbana have taken inspiration from women themselves.
The Dolce Bag, epitomizes the duality which exists in a woman. The literal “sweetness” of a woman’s character is reflected in the bag’s name, while her innate strength is quintessentially represented by the clasp.
At the same time, this handbag, in its rotund dimensions and intricate handiwork, represent the woman herself. The hand-crafted details give that one-of-a-kind effect that sets every woman apart from the other and which bestows an inestimable value.
The Spring Summer edition of the Dolce Bag, is crafted from weaved plastic. The material and handiwork immediately sends our thoughts wondering back to retro Italian beach scenes, where the sun loungers were made of weaved plastic, the sea was clean, and the women were real.
The Dolce Bag is a statement purse, yet not ostentatious. It represent those women who are strong, walk with their heads held high, know what they want and aren’t afraid to go get it- much like the archetypal Italian lady.
The Dolce Bag embodies the same principles as the iconic Dolce&Gabbana Miss Sicily bag: Italian tradition, unsurpassed craftsmanship, and style. The Dolce Bag is a creative and natural consequence of the unmitigated success of the Miss Sicily, yet it is not its successor, rather its companion.
The Dolce Bag makes a lovely Valentine’s Day gift, and its available on our e boutique and in stores worldwide.
