Persian Lamb by Dolce & Gabbana FW 2012/13

The girls looked beautiful and innocent in their tiaras, hair ornaments, and dangly earrings: 
“something between princesses and virgins” as Stefano Gabbana called them. But, this time, the 
applause should really go to his partner. The fall collection was about his homeland, and between 
the simple-yet-elaborate lace dresses, strict-yet-sexy Sicilian widow tailoring, and
 the elaborately embellished fur capes, you wanted to be part of it ...

 Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2012/13

A little way into viewing the charming renditions of caped priest coats, golden 
ecclesiastical embroidery, allusions to altar lace, choir-boy ruffs, and the whole religious 
gorgeousness of Sicily on Dolce & Gabbana’s runway, a thought struck about just how 
pleasurable, and rare an experience it is to come to Italy and see a show by 
Italian designers that is all about how much they love Italy.

Feminine Sophia Loren references, and so this collection was another full-on 
celebration of one of the many multilayered possibilities of Italian culture that Domenico Dolce 
and Stefano Gabbana have to play with. In this case, it’s more Domenico Dolce’s department, since 
he was born in a town in the center of Sicily and, as an infant, slept in his father’s tailoring 
workshop as his parents outfitted the local congregation for high days and holidays.
