Dolce & Gabbana is a shining example of why it’s good to remember where you come from in fashion. In the case of these designers, it’s Italy, or more specifically, Sicily, Domenico Dolce’s birthplace, an island of so many layers of history and culture, it’s mind-spinning. This season, they explored yet another Sicilian fantasy, a medieval fairy tale spun from the little-known fact that, in the eleventh and twelfth centuries, the island was ruled by the Normans—the French invaders who brought Catholicism, castles, and chivalric codes with them.
Summer is almost here and parties are in full swing and this means we need plenty of different outfits to go out parting every night.

The Dolce&Gabbana Fall Winter 2014 Dea clutch, beautifully embellished with mosaic inspired sequins and bejeweled clasp will make any outfit, from your favourite LBD to a simple trouser ensemble.
