Byzantine Glitter At Dolce & Gabbana Fall Winter 2013

Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall Winter 2013 offering was an ode to the richness and glory of the Roman heritage. Byzantine mosaic print silks, gold embroidery, intricate jewel encrusted dresses , bejeweled crowns, rosary beads, velvet pumps with jewel encrusted heels  and of course the signature craftsmanship and tailoring of the label in a rich color palette of  glittery yellow, ruby red, green and blue ,instantly took us to the splendorous days of  the royal  and pre-renaissance era.

The Byzantines preferred keeping their clothes flowing, hence except for few pieces like the A-line skirts, corset dresses and gold filigree bustier embellished with stones, the silhouette of the remaining pieces were kept loose and billowy. To mellow down the brilliance of sparkle and in fine contrast, a color palette of black, white and grey was infused in the form of houndstooth, Prince of Wales checks and tweed – leaving an imprint of British flavor.

The breath taking finale when a troop of models walked down the runway in ruby encrusted glittering cardinal red lace dresses, it was anything but spectacular, dramatic and divine.
