Dolce&Gabbana have stunned the fashion world, and beyond by launching an haute couture line. Here’s a round up of what has been said about this unexpected, yet totally coherent innovation.
Dolce&Gabbana want to become an iconic name in fashion, one which will stand the tests of time and live well beyond the designers. One of the ways to create a legacy for Dolce&Gabbana was to add to their selection with a highly luxurious couture line, well, to be clear, Alta Moda, and make sure you call it that, or you’ll risk finding yourself on the receiving end of a cutting remark by Stefano himself, like that blogger who unwittingly misnamed the made to measure line.
