For the Women Summer 2017 collection, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were inspired by the Tropico Italiano. The Italian Tropic does not formally exist but it is an imaginary line that marks the territory which stretches from Naples to include Sicily.
Embroidered ‘hotel’ slippers, folkloristic crowns, LED shoes, pizza heels, drum bags, pyjamas with ice cream prints. Irony is all over the collection.
Classic pieces have been reinvented: lace tailleurs jacket are placed on top of D&G logo t-shirts and sneakers. Fake t-shirts which you see on Saturday market stall are reprinted with the writing ‘DG la vera copia’ (the true copy) and embroidered.
The show opened with a group of Neapolitan dancers who adapted Tarantella sounds to breakdance moves. Dressed with their own outfits. The soundtrack was a remix of the classic Tarantella music – a typical street folkloristic music.
There were 91 looks and the finale saw models wearing skirts, flip-flops and t-shirts with the writing ‘Io C’ero’ in all the languages.
