Erin O'Connor's subtle elegance mixed with Stromboli's volcanic black sand. Spring-Summer 1998 was the perfect union of craftsmanship and high tech. A wink at couture, an explosion of alternatives.
If the definition of a magic eruption was mixing unlikely elements together, Spring-Summer 1998 was definitely one.
The name, Stromboli, celebrates the volcanic Sicilian landscape. A couture eruption presented at the Palazzo rather than on a runway. Intimate, traditional, yet surprising and provocative at the same time.
The interesting fact to remember from this particular collection is the use of mannequins for the dresses: very couture. As it often happens with Dolce&Gabbana, the details and inspiration points are of ultimate importance.
The print of the Madonna del Lavoro, the ex voto metals of the Sacred Heart, a Catholic mood set on motion. Traditions interpreted and erupted.
The campaign and the emblematic press release. Tulles and furs, prayers and modernity.
The absolute must-have of the collection: the plastic corset dress in red and yellow. The details: butterflies.
Tailoring accents: tight jacket with buttons.Dark colors and simple shapes.
The Virginal Blue hue, women paintings taking the stage, dramatic and fashion.
