The Czech Republic is not short of beautiful locations for romantic fashion shoots, but for their October issue they’ve chosen to illustrate the Dolce&Gabbana FW13 Baroque Collection in an all together very Italian setting; Lake Como.
The Dolce&Gabbana Fw13 Baroque Collection lends itself well to a romantic interpretation, flowing silhouettes, gilded tulle, soft velvets, roses and innocent whites create a very tactile and visually rich collection.
Beautiful jewellery created with delicate flowers or cherubs, which amongst many things represent love, culminate in a romantic love affair with fashion.
Lake Como, with its grand architecture and incredible scenery proves to be an idyllic backdrop for a wistfully sentimental shoot.
Gold embroidered lace corset dresses contrast well with the cold stone of the porch.
While the white lace and cross-stitched rose dress fits in beautifully with the verdant bushes which decorate the gardens of the villa.
The silhouettes of the model, set against the rolling hills and quiet waters of the lake almost seem to represent femininity in nature.
Conversely, a laced look with floor length cape has something fairy tale like to it, the winding path and lost expression- a Dolce&Gabbana little lace riding hood?
While the sinuous shape of the model’s hips mirrors the amphora like columns of a beautiful balcony overlooking the water.
