DOLCE AND GABANNA DOLCE BOX VANITY CASE

FALL 2016 READY-TO-WEAR

Dolce & Gabbana


Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White: Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall show was a compendium of princess-y fairy-tale fantasies. “Today, every girl wants to be a princess,” Stefano Gabbana asserted at a preview. “Today, everything is possible for the young generation!” He and Domenico Dolce see themselves as storytellers as much as fashion designers, whose job is to divert people’s anxieties away from reality—much as, well, Walt Disney did himself. “We know how the world is today. Fashion makes people dream—this is the service fashion gives,” Gabbana concluded.

So this time, rather than revisiting Sicilian history again, the designers found new roles for some of their familiar pieces. The fitted midi dress turned a tinselly pale blue for Cinderella; raw-edged houndstooth tweed coats and suits became her scullery maid “before” clothes; the black lace “widow” dresses converted ideally to wicked stepmother-wear; the formal menswear tailoring attired Prince Charming; and lots of gold-frogged and tailcoated military jackets outfitted a toy soldier army from The Nutcracker.

Dolce & Gabbana have taken up a fascinating position vis-a-vis fashion in the past few years. The less they’ve paid heed to the supposed pressure to overhaul their collections with a radically different look every season and the more they’ve worked on writing chapters in their own playbook, the more successful they’ve become. And the more fun they’re having. A glance at Stefano Gabbana’s Instagram feed proves what a ridiculous, goofy sense of humor he has. It had been fully let loose on the details and accessories this time—in the glittery beaded patches on dresses and novelty sweaters showing the Seven Dwarves, toadstools, chandeliers, cats, and tailor mice, and in box bags made in the shape of castles and pumpkins. Even, in one case, on a (literal) vanity bag with a mirror scrawled with the words Who is the most beautiful? Me!


The passionate, sensual and seductive Pour Femme captures the essence of the Dolce&Gabbana woman. Pour Femme embodies the essence of the Dolce&Gabbana woman: passionate, sensual and seductive, confident and aware of her own beauty. The fragrance epitomizes Mediterranean harmonies and contrasts. Nuances of Raspberry give way to the addictive qualities of the sugary 'Guimauve' and full-bodied sensuality of the Vanilla base notes.

Though we can use Vanity Cases to store cosmetics, we can also use them as a ‘chic’ box bags for the crucial meetings. They’re used in multiple ways these days. But anyways, j’adore Vanity Cases.

So we came across the Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Box Vanity Case, and we… instantly felt in love. Minimalistic, elegant with a bit cuteness is what pushed our bag-obsession button.

The embossed leather with chic contrasting – no eyes can ignore such beauty. The right color mixed with the right hardware is another thing we love.

The D&G lock in the center for beautifying purpose but also to help you secure all your essentials inside. And finished with a cute mini white flower attached to the lock.

One large space is what you will find inside, big enough to store all your evening items. And of course, you can also use it as a make-up box. But what you will find inside is a mirror that reads: ‘you’re the most beautiful’, in Italian for a confidence boosting touch.

Measuring 4.5’ x 8.5’ x 4.5’ (H x W x D) inches, priced at $3245 USD, €2150 euro, $4950 AUD, $23900 HKD, ¥355000 JPY viaMyTheresa.

DOLCE & GABBANA CHANGES THE CONVERSATION FOR SPRING 2017

Categories:Fashion

The invitation to Dolce & Gabbana’s spring 2017 runway show read "Tropico Italiano," but the event itself on Sunday afternoon was not quite the fun-loving-Italian-on-vacation-in-tropical-printed-swimsuits-and-bustier-dresses that we expected. Rather, it clarified the brand's position on what purpose it thinks its runway shows should serve.

Leading up to the show, the brand began teasing images on Instagram of its cadre of millennials who would be sitting front row: Sofia Richie, Brandon Dallas, Luka Sabbat, Brandon Dallas, Dylan Jagger Lee, Sarah Snyder and more (read about all 21 of them here) — the brand even shed a spotlight on them before the show began so that those of us sitting across from them (including many a U.S. editor with a strong social media following) could snap a few photos in the otherwise dark space (or perhaps so they could snap selfies?). Dolce & Gabbana had thought of everything — even guest hydration. As we walked into the venue, attractive men were manning a coconut stand serving fresh coconuts with straws. 

As the lights dimmed again and the music changed from the entirety of Justin Bieber's "Purpose" to upbeat Italian Tarantella music, we expected the standard procession of models in colorful outfits. But instead, a group of Neapolitan dancers in street clothes ran out from the audience onto the runway and started breakdancing. The phones came out, the Snapchats and Instagram stories were shared and eventually, the dancers were replaced by models — Hailey Baldwin included. (Surprisingly, there were no Hadids).

Despite the fruit, the collection itself just didn't seem all that tropical (and the breakdancers didn't quite fit into that theme either, as far as we could tell): The show notes offered something of an explanation: The Tropico Italiano isn't a real thing that exists, but rather "an imaginary line that marks the territory which stretches from Naples to Sicily," meaning locals might get some of the symbols Dolce & Gabbana used to reference that region, but to us, the marching band jackets, folkloric crowns, LED shoes and pizza, pasta, cocktail and ice cream motifs felt a little random — though they did make for a cheerful visual feast as they came down the runway, and what more do you want from a Dolce & Gabbana show?

As designers the world over rethink when, where and how they present their collections, Dolce & Gabbana said they wanted to adopt "a more personal approach to the design process which is not influenced by seasonal rules or codes," per the show notes. "There are no longer rules in fashion, but what matters is to remain true to yourself." That ethos seemed to be reflected in the haphazard styling seen with many looks: heavily embroidered marching band jackets paired with feminine skirts, an ankle-length jacket covered in sequins paired with jeans, an athletic jersey and shorts worn with heels; and speaking of footwear, many models wore embroidered "hotel" slippers. It was as if whomever styled this show had the attention span of, well, a millennial. Also fitting this theme were the many rule breakers in the front row: young people who (thanks to privilege, in many of their cases), are carving their own paths in life, whether by creating cool content, modeling, making music or all of the above.

As the entire cast of models stormed the runway at the end of the show — Dolce & Gabbana's signature finale format — they wore bedazzled, low-brow "D&G" (remember that line?) T-shirts made to look like counterfeit tees you might find in a tourist-trap street market. It was basically Dolce & Gabbana merch, and paired with some adorable embellished brocade mini skirts, the whole look had major commercial appeal — though we're still on the fence about the flip flops many models had on their feet.

But the biggest statement of all was that front row — a statement that recalled the brand's spring 2010 show, where the designers shook the industry by stationing OG fashion bloggers including Bryanboy, Tommy Ton, Garance Doré and Scott Schuman in the front row, many of them equipped with laptops — laptops! Similarly, Sunday's stunt cemented these young, iPhone-wielding Insta-celebs and celebrity offspring as the new influential content creators. Will those independent bloggers suffer as a result? Are editors,' buyers' and journalists' seats going to get progressively worse? We'll have to wait and see.

Dolce & Gabbana’s New Boombox Bag Will Actually Play Your Music

Categories:Other Brands

Dolce-and-Gabbana-Boombox-Bag

Over the past few years’ enormous trend for novelty accessories, bags have been made in the image of a lot of things: books, decks of playing cards, astrological symbols, leather jackets. Rarely do any of these bags also perform any of the functions of their aesthetic inspirations; after all, bags have a pretty specific functional purpose already, and their interior hollowness presents another significant barrier. Neither of those issues got in Dolce & Gabbana’s way, though, and soon you can buy a bag that’s also a boombox, should that be a thing that’s useful to you.

For whatever this bag will surely cost when it’s eventually available, it really should connect to your phone via Bluetooth (lots of cheap portable speakers do that!), but instead, you can hook your iPhone up via aux cord and this purse will actually play whatever you choose. On the bright side, that means you don’t have to get your phone and the bag to pair, which I am never very good at.

DOLCE AND GABBANA ESCAPE CANVAS TOTE

Categories:Other Brands

Dolce-Gabbana-Floral-Printed-Canvas-Tote-Pink

We belief that obtaining a ‘natural’ look is the most beautiful way to express yourself in fashion. Too much and it’s exaggerated, too little and it doesn’t create an impact – an overdoses use of make-up does more harm than beauty.

And when the flowers start to blossom and the trees turn to green, you need to follow the season naturally. Hide the darker colors deep in the back of your wardrobe and move those that are bright, shiny and colorful to the front.

If you are still seeking for the summer tote, take a look at the D&G Escape Canvas Tote. It’s a beach bag, shopping tote and a holiday bag all in one; it’s as roomy as the Louis Vuitton Neverfull and as functional as your can’t-live-without iPhone 5.

This tote is made in three different colors, red, black and green. They are all printed with pink flowers and partly made from lambskin to keep it soft and smooth. An internal zip pocket and patch pocket can be found inside, measuring 16 x 28 x 5 cm (H x W x D).
